Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: The objectives of this research are: • To provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain conditions (specifically ground temperature and permafrost active layer thickness) and improve characterization of terrain sensitivity in the Mackenzie Valley. • Monitor ground temperature and active layer to detect changes in permafrost conditions resulting from surface disturbance or climate change a...


Environmental Studies Across Tree Line
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application no. 978. The objectives of this research are to: 1) Monitor permafrost conditions in the Mackenzie Delta region; 2) examine freeze-back of the active layer and associated strength properties of freezing soil; 3) examine the influence of shrub removal on frozen ground and snow conditions at abandoned drilling-mud sumps; 4) inve...


Surficial Geology Mapping Fort Norman (96C), Blackwater Lake (96B), Mahoney Lake (96F)
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: This project aims to obtain a better understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. It will also identify baseline levels for natural and anthropogenic contaminants,...


Retrogressive Thaw Slides in the Richardson Range: Climate Change Indicator
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: This is a study of retrogressive thaw sumps produced by the exposure and melting of massive ice in continuous permafrost (Richardson Range, NWT). These sumps are recently occurring and presumably a result of global climate change. This research will recognize retrogressive thaw slumps that have massive ice, identify the type of massive ice (glacier buried or segregated) and measure the rate of ...


Licence #1898
Principal Investigator: Smith, M.
Licenced Year(s): 1975
Summary: To develop an understanding of the heat balance of undisturbed soil and vegetation and develop a computer model which will predict the consequences in the active layer of disturbances of the surface strata for Arctic Land Use Research Program....
