Permafrost and climate change, western Arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: The objective of this research is to understand how climate change is affecting permafrost in the western Arctic, particularly in the outer Mackenzie delta. The research team intend to investigate the ice content of the ground and how this may affect terrain stability. The research team will study changes in ground temperature at various locations in the western Arctic, ranging from Herschel Islan...


Comparative studies of pingos and pingo clusters in the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula, NWT and Athabasca Valles, Mars
Principal Investigator: Soare, Richard J
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of this research is to compare the formation processes of pingo-like mounds near the equator in Mars vs. the development of pingos in the Tuktoyaktuk Coastlands, and evaluate whether the two mounds types could be similar. Mars is a high-priority target for the Canadian and international planetary science communities. The main driver for this is the possibility of life on the Red P...


Permafrost studies: western Arctic coast
Principal Investigator: Mackay, J. Ross
Licenced Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1989
Summary: This permafrost study has been part of a long-term study first initiated in 1951. The researcher will collect data that will allow a better understanding of the growth of the ice wedges, pingos and permafrost....


Pingo and Allied Ground Ice, Contemporary and in the Geological Record
Principal Investigator: Gurney, Steve D.
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researcher and his team will engage in detailed geological mapping of the various types of pingos with respect to both their genesis and current status. Geometric levelling of pingo locations will also be undertaken to ascertain the spatial, temporal, and environmental inter-relationships of pingos to such features as drained lake basins, stream channels and other pingos....


Preparation of a Management Plan for the Pingos Canadian Landmark
Principal Investigator: Downie, Bruce K.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: Begun in 1991, the researcher and his associates will continue to prepare a management plan for the Pingos Canadian Landmark....


Statement of Significance and Resource Description and Analysis for Pingo Canadian Landmark
Principal Investigator: Slocombe, D. Scott
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: To provide a basis for planning and management of the Pingo Canadian Landmark site, required by the Inuvialuit Final Agreement, the researchers will identify the significance of the biophysical, cultural and economic resources....


Licence #2316
Principal Investigator: Luch, Stephen R.
Licenced Year(s): 1978
Summary: To conduct a broad study of the biological and physical components of pingos....


Licence #1972
Principal Investigator: French, Hugh
Licenced Year(s): 1976
Summary: Banks Island: Geomorphological Investigations - ground ice, pingos, mass-wasting and spring runoff will be investigated at sites in the Sachs and Upper Kellett drainage systems. Holman Island: Geomorphological studies will be of a reconnaissance nature and will emphasize rock weathering, cliff retreat and permafrost conditions within 10 miles of townsite....
