Winter Flow Regime and Icing Dynamics of Tundra Streams near the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway
Principal Investigator: Ensom, Timothy P
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objectives of the project are to: 1) determine the spatial extent, distribution, and timing of winter icing events in streams along the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway (ITH) through groundbased and aerial reconnaissance of stream crossings; 2) identify relations between physical watershed characteristics and icing dynamics through field observations and analyses of watercourse and catchment mo...


Forest Ecotone Experiment
Principal Investigator: Eitel, Jan
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The overarching objective of this study is to integrate light detection and ranging (LiDAR), passive spectral, and tree ecophysiological data to link biophysical structure to ecological function in the Forest Tundra Ecotone. In so doing, the research team will be able to remotely assess the vulnerability and resilience of the forest tundra ecotone (FTE) to environmental change. The field work w...


Early Quaternary and Late Tertiary Geology and Geomorphology, Arctic Islands.
Principal Investigator: Fyles, John G.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researcher will revisit the "beaver peat" locality and will measure, describe, photograph and sample the exposed peaty material in greater detail than before. A detailed search will be made for fossil bones and beaver-gnawed sticks, as well as for additional fossils. Other sites where similar substrates containing fossil wood or other plant materials will also be visited (or revisited)....


Northwest Passage Expedition
Principal Investigator: Viren, Tom
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: Mr. Lonnie Dupre, Mr. Malcolm Vance and Mr. Jon Nierenburg will collect snow and plant material samples on behalf of Mr. Derik Muir, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Canada and Mr. Dan Jaffe, Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska, Fairbanks....


Evolution of High-Latitude Floras
Principal Investigator: Basinger, James F.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1989 1988 1987
Summary: Begun in 1985, this project will continue the study of plant evolution in high latitudes and the exploration for fossils in rocks of the Eureka Sound Group of Axel Heiberg and Ellesmere Islands. This season the field work will expand to Strathcona Fiord area and to east central Axel Heiberg Island. This information is used in the interpretation of global climatic change and the evolution of temper...


Paleoecological and Geological Study of the Isortoq River and Flitaway Lake, Baffin Island; Collection of Arctic Coleoptera
Principal Investigator: Morgan, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and team will take samples of organic sediments and process them to remove insect and plant fossils. Identification of these fossils will provide the basis for a paleoenvironmental analysis by comparing the fossil organisms to modern ones....


Reclamation of simulated transport corridors in Subarctic forests.
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 1989 1988 1987
Summary: To continue the study initiated in 1984 by conducting gemorphological, microclimatological, pedological, hydrological, botanical and small mammal studies on the site....
