Enhancement of Permafrost Monitoring Network and collection of baseline terrain information in Mackenzie Valley Corridor - Deh Cho Region
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The Geological Survey of Canada maintains a network of active layer and permafrost temperature monitoring sites in the Mackenzie region in order to document the response of permafrost conditions to climate change. Gaps exist in the network in the permafrost zones north of Norman Wells, the Mackenzie Delta region, and on shorelines and coastlines. Enhancement of the network is essential to provide ...

Enhancement of Permafrost Monitoring Network and Collection of Baseline Terrain Information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor - K'asho Got'ine District, Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Twelve sampling sites in the K'asho Got’ine District of the Sahtu Settlement Area have been selected for this project, with preferred locations chosen near existing winter roads and the C.N.T. trail for continuous site accessibility and to minimize disturbance to the environment. One or two boreholes up to 20 m in depth will be drilled at each site in order to capture local environmental variabili...

Environmental Studies Across the Treeline, Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: The Mackenzie Delta region is characterized by diverse terrain and ecological conditions. Responsible and effective management of oil and gas exploration and potential production and pipeline construction in this region necessitates a broad but detailed understanding of environmental conditions in this region and the potential response of this environment to climate change or anthropogenic disturb...

Mackenzie Valley Landslide Geotechnical Investigations
Principal Investigator: Nichol, Susan L.
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective is to improve knowledge about landslides in the Mackenzie Valley. The results of this study will enable better environmental impact assessments and help to reduce environmental impacts related to the construction and operation of the proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline. As well, the results will have a broader application to a wide range of future development activities in the region....

Snow accumulation/runoff in high latitude permafrost basins
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to improve understanding of the changes in water and energy in northern regions, and to develop improved computer models of these processes. The Trail Valley Creek, Hans Creek, and Zed Creek sites will be accessed...

Permafrost investigations, Mackenzie Delta region, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 2000 1999
Summary: This study investigates the physical and chemical characteristics of permafrost in the Mackenzie Delta region. The thawing of ice-rich permafrost can result in subsidence or terrain instability. Determination of thaw-sensitive terrain is required to pla...
