Permafrost response to recent climate warming in the Mackenzie Delta and Yukon Coast.
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Stephen A
Licenced Year(s): 1999
Summary: The objective of the present study is to assess the impact of recent warming, including the warm summer of 1998, on active layer thicknesses and slope stability in the Mackenzie Delta, N.W.T. and Yukon North Slope. The main mode of transportation will be by helicopter (206L) and by boat to transport people. The helicopter will be based out of Inuvik with a fuel cache at Tuktoyaktuk. The helicop...


Permafrost investigations, western arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: Samples of ground ice and permafrost soil, will be collected, and also air, ground and lake water temperatures measured. This information will be used to understand how permafrost conditions in the area have changed in the last few thousand years. We also measure ground movement to determine how the ground deforms during the year in particular we measure the tilting of trees at regular intervals t...


Investigation of ground ice development in the sediments of the MacKenzie Delta area.
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licenced Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The researcher will collect samples of ground ice in near-surface sediments and measure air, ground and lake temperatures. The information will be used to help understand how the permafrost in the area has changed in the last few thousand years, in order to determine what might happen in the future....


Ground ice studies of the Tuktoyaktuk coastlands
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1993 1992 1992 1991
Summary: Measurements of slope and ground temperature will be collected at three sites located east of Tuktoyaktuk and on northern Richards Island. Selection of the sites will be determined in the field but are expected to be at a location south of Gruben's fish camp in Eskimo Lakes and at the west end of Richards Island at North Head....


Coastal Sedimentary Processes and Geotechnical Conditions, North Head Area, Richards Island, Canadian Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steven M
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researcher and his team will use a hand-operated auger to take sediment cores and temperature measurements. Cores will penetrate the seabed beneath the ice to a depth of 2-3 metres. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) will be used to investigate ground ice distribution and a current meter will be used to measure sub-ice currents along the edge of the bottom-fast ice....


Ground Ice/Permafrost/Sediment Relationships observed near Pangnirtung, NWT
Principal Investigator: Hyatt, James A.
Licenced Year(s): 1990 1989 1988 1987
Summary: 1. To examine, photograph, sample, and relate subsurface and surface expressions of ground ice and permafrost. 2. To sample sediment and ground ice found in the new Pangnirtung reservoir and along any natural exposures. 3. To collect unconsolidated sediment and ice core samples at the selected field sites. 4. To implant shallow thermal probes at the selected field sites...
