Climate driven permafrost degradation and its impact on slope failures
Principal Investigator: Beddoe, Ryley
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The objective of this research is to better understand the impact of climate driven permafrost degradation on slope instabilities and landslides in the region. This research will involve detailed investigation of both landslides that have occurred and slopes that are assessed for being at a high risk of failure. Soil samples will be taken by digging test pits within the active layer with hand ...


Mackenzie Valley Landslides Geotechnical Investigations
Principal Investigator: Wang, Baolin
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this field work is to better understand the movement behaviour of the landslides in the region. The Geological Survey of Canada’s research group lead by Dr. Baolin Wang has been conducting landslide research in the region since 2004. This is the final year of the project. The previous permits have expired. However, there is a need to make a follow up trip to the various landsli...


Mackenzie Valley Landslide Geotechnical Investigations
Principal Investigator: Wang, Baolin
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this research is to understand triggering of landslides and slope failure mechanisms in the Mackenzie Valley. This will enable better environmental impact assessments of infrastructure projects in the region. This research involves detailed investigation of landslides. Soil samples will be taken by digging test pits in the active layer with hand tools. Most test pits will be ...


Regional Terrain Hazards Mapping
Principal Investigator: Couture, Réjean
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The goal of this project is to compile updated baseline information/knowledge on the types, regional distribution, and controls (e.g. forests fires, climate change) of landslides. The main objectives of the field reconnaissance at landslide sites are six-fold: 1) to validate previous data collected through air photo interpretation and remote sensing techniques; 2) to carry out detailed mapping at ...


Surficial Materials Investigations, South Nahanni Area
Principal Investigator: Menounos, Brian p
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The various objectives of the study are: to refine the previously compiled landslide inventory map with field checking, to identify causal mechanisms to slope instability (such as bedrock or surficial material type, aspect, elevation, glacial history, and permafrost distribution), to identify frequency of landslide types, to examine landscape patterns in the Nahanni karst area to establish relatio...


Surficial Geology of the Mackenzie Corridor
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: It is important for researchers to improve their understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. Additionally, predictions of the impacts of climate change on the terra...


Mackenzie Valley Landslide Geotechnical Investigations
Principal Investigator: Nichol, Susan L.
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective is to improve knowledge about landslides in the Mackenzie Valley. The results of this study will enable better environmental impact assessments and help to reduce environmental impacts related to the construction and operation of the proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline. As well, the results will have a broader application to a wide range of future development activities in the region....


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,...


Near-surface ground ice in sediments of the Mackenzie Delta region, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 2000 1999
Summary: This study investigates the distribution and amount of near-surface ground ice in sediments of the Mackenzie Delta area. The research team will consist of Steve Kokelj (Carleton University - principle researcher) and Doug Joe (Inuvik). The proposed fieldwork will begin in Inuvik in April, with the main part of the field work being carried out from 30 July to 20 August. In April, the research te...


Trilobite biostratigraphy of Rockslide Formation (Middle Cambrian)
Principal Investigator: Pratt, Brian R.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2002 2000 1998
Summary: Outcrops in the Mackenzie Mountains preserve an almost uninterrupted sequence of strata of Cambrian age. This study aims to collect in bed-by-bed detail the trilobite fossils from the Rockslide Formation, the Middle Cambrian portion of the sequence. The taxonomy and biostratigraphy of these fossils will generate a refined time scale for this part of the geologic column, some half a billion years o...
