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...


Permafrost in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steve V
Licenced Year(s): 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; and 3) assess the physical and chemical characteristics of permafrost. To achieve the objectives the follow...


Thermal State of Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Siegfried, Dian
Licenced Year(s): 2016
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...


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


Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Mamet, Steve D
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Objectives of this research 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) the 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 c...


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): 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...


Thermal State of Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Siegfried, Dian
Licenced Year(s): 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. The research team is currently monitoring active layer and permafrost temperatures, active layer soil moisture, air temperature, and snow depth at this site using a datalogger and sensors from Campbell Scientific (Logan, UT). In August, 2010 the research team vi...


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...


Impacts from climate change on berry productivity in the Canadian Arctic: Integrating community participation with science
Principal Investigator: Desrosiers, Sarah CE
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The main objective of the Berry Project is to establish a long-term community-based monitoring program in arctic communities using culturally important berry species as indicators of climate change. The project’s main objectives for the Daring Lake Tundra Science Camp are to bring awareness to the effects of climate change and to expand environmental stewardship. These goals can be achieved by del...
