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...

Examining Spatial and Temporal Variation of Ground Temperatures in the Mackenzie Delta, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Kanigan, Julian
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The Mackenzie Delta is sensitive to both climate warming and human development. This project will contribute to a better understanding of ground temperatures in the Mackenzie Delta and will provide a baseline from which to assess future changes and cumulative impacts. Ground temperatures will be collected from the southern, central and outer delta regions. In the summer, about 30 boreholes (l...

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....

Active Layer Monitoring Network in the Mackenzie Valley
Principal Investigator: Nixon, Mark
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: This ongoing survey examines permafrost so as to better understand how the active layer varies locally and regionally and how it will respond to environmental change, including but not restricted to climate change. The research team will survey from For...

Impact of Climatic Change on Earth Surface Processes, Fosheim Peninsula, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Lewkowicz, Antoni G
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The aim of this ongoing research is to establish links between climate and the movements of soil. By collecting this type of data, it may be possible to determine the effect that climate changes may have on the movements of soil down slopes, into rivers and eventually into the sea. The project has been underway for several years because soil movements are mostly slow and therefore difficult to mea...

The Study of Environmental Change, Truelove Lowland, Devon Island, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: King, Roger H.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: This is a continuation of a long-term study of the record of past environmental changes preserved in the sediments of the Truelove Lowland. Sediment traps that were placed in Immerk & Loon Lake will be removed & analyzed. Also the temperature & moisture conditions of soil surrounding Fish Lake will be monitored and samples will be collected....

Licence #1899
Principal Investigator: Bliss, Lawrence
Licenced Year(s): 1975
Summary: To determine plant responses to environmental changes which result from disturbances and how surface disturbance alters soil heat and moisture regimes, for Arctic Land Use Research Program....
