EL462 & EL463 Aggregate and Permafrost Mapping Program
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this research is to provide a better understanding of the permafrost under EL 462 and EL 463 and to delineate potential aggregate deposits. Objectives will include mapping: permafrost distribution, massive ice bodies (including wedge ice), depth to massive ice, lower contacts of massive ice, zones of thermokarst, ice rich sediments (thaw sensitive), active layer, and aggregate de...


Determination of near-surface permafrost extent in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Nguyen, Thai-Nguyen
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The climate and numerous field reports indicate that permafrost should be continuous in the Mackenzie Delta. However, the most recent permafrost map in the Atlas of Canada classifies the delta as having discontinuous permafrost. Yet, no extensive fieldwork covering the entire delta has ever been realized. Unfrozen conditions beneath the ground, near shifting channels, have been recognized by vario...

Ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The main study objectives are to 1) determine the status of permafrost landforms in the study area; and 2) determine the long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No 1 project. With climate change potentially resulting in warming in the north, it...


Ground Ice and Permafrost Conditions Associated with Eastern Arctic Water Storage Facilities
Principal Investigator: Hyatt, James A.
Licenced Year(s): 1990 1989 1988 1987
Summary: Mr. Hyatt is continuing his study to see if permafrost and ground ice are affecting the new water reservoir at Pangnirtung. He is also starting a new study at Pond Inlet. The reservoir at Pond Inlet is a natural lake that has been dammed. Mr. Hyatt wants to compare the affects of permafrost and ground ice on the structure of this reservoir with the one at Pangnirtung....


The influence of sedimentation on permafrost distribution, Richards Island, NWT.
Principal Investigator: Dyke, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 1988
Summary: To place temperature probes using a water jet to measure temperatures beneath a 2 km long spit at the north end of Richards Island to determine if the accumulation of these sediments has influenced the distribution of permafrost....
