A Multi-scale Assessment of Cumulative Impacts in the Northern Mackenzie Basin
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: Objective 1: To use satellite imagery (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, etc.) to document the rate and extent of landscape change (slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, etc.) in the northern Mackenzie Basin. To quantify landscape disturbances and vegetation regeneration patterns since 1985 the research team will obtain Landsat satellite images that will provide reflectance measurements covering a 1...


Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Permafrost landforms are shrinking in response to climate warming. The researchers want to measure the amount of change each year and to measure the temperature of the permafrost year-round. In addition they want to measure the rate of plant recovery on disturbed areas resulting from the CANOL Project (1942-45). Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan ...


Ecological and Geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The main objectives of this study are to: 1. determine the status of permafrost land forms in the study area, and 2. determine the long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No.1 project. Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan Pass. Base camp is owned by Old Squaw Lodge at Camp 222. Beyond the base camp mountain bikes and foot will be the means ...


Forestry Research in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Walker-Larsen, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Forest Fire Effects on Vegetation and Wildlife Habitat use: Research sites will be accessed by helicopter. Sites are located in burns of different ages. In the summer, small teams will complete vegetation plots, assess species composition and percent cover, and assess wildlife abundance. In the winter, helicopter track surveys will be completed. Forest Monitoring (ARNEWS and SI/MAB plots): The...


Studies of the Environmental Effects of Disturbances in the Subarctic (SEEDS)
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: Access to the site will be along existing seismic lines from Tulita. Transport will involve helicopter, boat, ATV and foot. The research is planned to see what happens after the fire to the permafrost, soils, plants and animals. An unburned site will be monitored to provide comparison with the burned area. Many studies will be done, including measurements of air and soil temperatures, wind spe...


A Re-evaluation of Disturbance Research in the Tundra near Tuktoyaktuk
Principal Investigator: Wein, Ross
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1989 1988 1987
Summary: The research will document long-term recovery rates on permanent research plots that were established on a range of tundra disturbances. In the 1970's disturbance surveys and experiments on a wide range of topics provided short-term results and predictions on recovery rates. This project will collect comparable data to validate these short term predictions and will also help to develop some ideas ...


Recovery of Arctic vegetation from disturbance by human occupation
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Bruce C.
Licenced Year(s): 1990 1988
Summary: Bruce Forbes is looking at how quickly plants are invading the old settlement of Clyde River where the ground was cleared for buildings and roads....
