Drivers and constraints of ecological change in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1) use remote sensing (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, Airphotos, UAVs, etc.) to document the rate and extent of landscape change (slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, lake drainage / expansion, etc.) in the NWT; and, 2) use field sampling and monitoring to determine the causes and impacts of regional changes in vegetation, and permafrost. To quantify land...

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: This project has three main objectives: 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 Landsat satellite images will be obtained, that will provide refle...

Vegetation recovery at 30 year old oil and gas drilling sumps in the Mackenzie River Delta, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Wunderlich, Nicole B
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: The objective of this study is to determine if the plant community composition of seeded and unseeded disturbances in the Mackenzie Delta is similar to the undisturbed tundra. This comparison may help determine best practices of recovery for native vegetation to use in future oil and gas projects in the region. The vegetation data will be collected using non-destructive methods including species p...

Mapping and Modeling Carbon Flux in Northern Canada Related to Land Use Change
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The research team is working to become familiar with the impact of human disturbances on vegetation in northern Canada for their carbon studies. The objective of this study is to collect vegetation and biophysical data for use as verification of ground cover type and disturbance for use in satellite imagery classification and biomass and soil sampling for carbon modeling along the Ingraham Trail....

Preconstruction biophysical site assessment (wildlife, vegetation) of potential well locations and flow line options within the Significant Discovery Area, and post-construction vegetation and permafrost monitoring on the Cameron Hills Gathering System
Principal Investigator: Hong, Tom
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: A pre-construction biophysical site assessment will focus on wildlife and vegetation. The proposed well-sites will be examined on foot, and the flowlines walked to document vegetation types, including rare species if present. Main vegetation types will b...

Vegetation Survey for the Ikhil Gas Development
Principal Investigator: Sutor, Greg
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: Vegetation communities along the pipeline route and over other parts of the Project area would be provisionally mapped from aerial photographs. A field survey would be undertaken with an emphasis on identifying rare plants. The study area is in the Caribou Hills IBP site 4-9, which was in part proposed because of its rare flora. July is an optimum time for a single survey. Also transect sampling ...

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 ...

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....

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....
