The cumulative impacts of rapid environmental change in the northwestern NWT: Investigating the impacts of mega-slump disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the lower Peel watershed, NW
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a multidisciplinary project involving communities, governments and academic researchers. The goals are to : 1) inventory and track broad scale changes in landscape disturbances; 2) determine the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on the physical and chemical characteristics and ecology of streams and rivers; 3) determine disturbance thresholds relevant to the health of strea...


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...


Sensitivity of high-latitude lakes to climatic & development disturbances
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: The researchers want to develop a model for small Arctic lakes that will help them see how sensitive or vulnerable Arctic lake ecosystems are to various forms of disturbance, such as future climate change or water withdrawal. In order to develop their m...


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,...


Morphological Study of the Campbell Dolomites Karst, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: McGuinness, Michaella
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: The objective of this study is to document and gain a better understanding of the processes that formed the karst (solution-controlled) landforms of the Campbell Dolomites. The data to be collected includes descriptive data such as slope angles and aspect, composition, size , type and angularity of slope material and detailed surveying of the land. Transportation to and from the base camp will be...
