Landscape Response from Altering Ice-Rich Terrain
Principal Investigator: Lamoureux, Scott F
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The goal of this study is to understand landscape response following ice-rich terrain alteration. The research team will install temperature loggers in 2" PVC pipe from the surface down to 3 m depth to monitor the ground temperature evolution over the summer season in the pits. The team will also use the geophysical technique electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) to measure the amount and st...


Permafrost in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steve V
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The primary objectives of this research are: 1) to develop and test new methods of monitoring permafrost landscape change; 2) to investigate the impacts of natural and human disturbance on permafrost terrain and the ground temperature conditions in natural environments and in communities; 3) assess the physical and chemical characteristics of permafrost; and, 4) to monitor the thermal evolution of...


Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This project continues the on-going monitoring program of permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT. This phase of the project is largely data collection. The specific objectives are: 1) to provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain conditions (specifically ground temperature and permafrost active layer thickness) and ...


Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Mamet, Steve D
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objectives of this project are to determine: 1) the status of permafrost landforms; 2) long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No. 1 project, including oil spills and gravel pits; and, 3) Status of treeline. Since 1990, automated microclimate stations powered by solar cells have been operated in the study area. One station is located at each of five permafrost landforms called pal...


Boreal Forest Carbon Balance Studies
Principal Investigator: Layden, Ronald E.
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to increase the understanding of taiga carbon balance of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and predict into the future the impacts of climate warming on these systems. The exchange of carbon gases between the taiga and atmosphere is a significant component of the carbon balance and is dependent upon vegetation cover. The description below for the tundra site at...


Landscape Change on Banks Island.
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) To use remote sensing to document the rate and extent of landscape change on Banks Island; 2) To examine the effects of tundra disturbances using detailed field investigations; and 3) Use participatory mapping and interviews to document Inuvialuit Knowledge of Landscape Change on Banks Island. In this project the research team are using remot...


Thermal State of Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Siegfried, Dian
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2013 2010
Summary: The objective of this project is to continue an ongoing long-term monitoring of permafrost temperatures on Banks Island and Mould Bay. At these sites the research team have lost remote (satellite) communication and need to make repairs to continue receiving data. The research team are currently monitoring active layer and permafrost temperatures, active layer soil moisture, air temperature, and...


Soil Carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Phillips, Marcus R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The goal of this research is to understand how landscape processes influence the quantity and quality of soil carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region. Particular attention will be paid to the depth distribution of soil carbon and how it is affected by differences in vegetation and soil forming processes. Key environmental differences that will be examined include forest vs. tundra and delta vs. uplan...


EarthScope Transportable Array
Principal Investigator: Woodward, Robert
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: This project consists of a large deployment of ground motion sensors (290 total) throughout Alaska and western Canada; 44 located in Yukon Territory and 9 in the Northwest Territory. (See www.usarray.org/alaska and the attached map.) Each station senses the ground movement from distant earthquakes and sends data via satellite or radio modem to a central receiving point in San Diego. The purpose...


Community based permafrost and active layer monitoring program
Principal Investigator: Yoshikawa, Kenji KY
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: Uniform permafrost and ground surface temperature measurements are one of the more important databases for long-term climatic study as well as remote sensing ground truthing data. Consistency in sensor depth, casing and drilling methods helps in comparison of the spatial and temporal distribution of the permafrost and seasonal conditions. The proposed partnership with the schools aids continuous m...
