Relations between surface conditions and near-surface ground ice at Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary, Mackenzie Delta, NWT
Principal Investigator: Morse, Peter D
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006
Summary: Permafrost composition and distribution at Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary in the Mackenzie Delta is unknown, and thawing as a result of disturbance may result in surface subsidence. The objective of this study is to determine near-surface permafrost conditions and distributions as they relate to vegetation and snow cover. Permafrost is a function of mean annual air temperature at a continental s...


Permafrost Adjustment to Coastal and Deltaic Processes, Beaufort Sea and Mackenzie Delta, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Dyke, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher will follow detailed studies by the GSC on permafrost distribution along retreating coasts at the north end of Richards Island, and adjacent areas of sediment accumulation to find out how quickly permafrost was re-established. This study will extend further westward to determine the adjustment of permafrost to the rapid sedimentation occurring there....
