Chronology of Thaw Flow and Geochemistry of Associated Massive Ground Ice. Fort McPherson, Northwest Territory, Canada.
Principal Investigator: CLARK, Ian D.
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: In the Gwich’in Settlement Region, residents of Fort McPherson have identified the unusual size of the mega-slumps on the Peel Plateau as a serious concern to both water quality and aquatic ecosystem. In addition to research oriented objectives relevant to understanding cumulative effects of mega-slump development on the land and water of the Peel Plateau, the project team will pursue establishing...


Northwest Territories Ice Patch Study - Geophysical Project
Principal Investigator: Moorman, Brian J
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: Ice patches in the Mackenzie Mountains are areas of permanent ice that last through the summer months and often contain frozen caribou remains (mostly dung) and archaeological artifacts such as hunting weapons and tools. As the climate warms, these ice patches are beginning to melt, and there is a risk of losing the biological and archaeological information they contain. Using a technique known a...


Summer 2001 Hydrology Surveys Within the Sahtu Settlement Region: Biophysical Baseline Studies in Support of the Mackenzie Delta Gas Feasibility Study
Principal Investigator: Sawetsky, Les
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: A detailed data collection program will be undertaken on all major streams in the proposed pipeline corridor. The proposed survey will begin in mid-September and continue until late December, 2001 and will consist of comprehensive studies at selected streams, as discussed below, to define how the streams behave and how they change in time. The focus of the hydrology component is on describing h...

Influence of Stream Discharge on the Distribution of Sea Ice with Climatic Implications
Principal Investigator: Dean, Ken
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: Satellite imagery, hydrologic data and field measurements will be used to develop a computer model of the thawing of sea ice and freezing of water in this area. The investigators will drill a hole through the ice and measure water temperature, salinity and turbidity....
