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...

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....
