This research is physically based on a peat plateau and a peat bog, both close to Yellowknife. There are two primary objectives to this research. The first involves quantifying surface energy balances in areas where degradation of peat is pronounced and where it is not. Suprapermafrost water from the degraded and non-degraded sites will be analyzed for nutrients and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) ...

Sand, gravel and crushed stone are valuable geological resources, collectively known as aggregates. They are essential bed, foundation and building materials. The presence of massive ice in aggregate deposits results in a series of resource management problems, particularly for the oil industry and its contractors who rely on local granular deposits as building material. From an environmental pers...

This study is to monitor the environmental impacts of disturbances caused by the Canol Project and to measure the effects on permafrost of climate change. The Canol disturbance studies have been underway since the late 1970's and the permafrost studies since 1990. This is year 15 of a 20-year study.
Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan Pass. Beyond...

Surveys will be conducted on the surface of the delta plains. A Pulse Ekko IV ground penetrating radar system will be used to take measurements every 1 to 2 metres using this portable system. These waves due to their frequency (50 to 200 MHz) have no affect on the environment (they are similar to FM radio waves)....

The Researcher and team will continue to conduct ground penetrating radar (GPR) surveys to provide two dimensional stratigraphic and structural geotechnical information. *** Research Project undertaken in Salluit, northern Quebec. Scientific Research Licence issued to enable researcher to obtain support at the Iqaluit Research Centre....
