Principal Investigator:Burn, Chris R Licenced Year(s):2016
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...
Principal Investigator:Soare, Richard J Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Mackay, J. Ross Licenced Year(s):19971996
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....
Principal Investigator:Gurney, Steve D. Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Downie, Bruce K. Licenced Year(s):
Begun in 1991, the researcher and his associates will continue to prepare a management plan for the Pingos Canadian Landmark....
Principal Investigator:Slocombe, D. Scott Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:French, Hugh Licenced Year(s):
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....
