Vegetation Productivity on the Bathurst Caribou Range
Principal Investigator: Danby, Ryan K
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The two main objectives are: to map changes in vegetation productivity on an annual basis across the Bathurst caribou herd’s range using satellite imagery obtained from NASA’s MODIS sensor (available since 2000) and analyze these data to identify where the most significant changes have occurred; and to collect and analyze data on the growth, establishment, and mortality of shrubs and trees over th...


Deglaciation of the NW Laurentide Ice Sheet and opening of the Mackenzie valley
Principal Investigator: Froese, Duane G
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: In this project, the research team aim to improve the chronology of the retreat of the Laurentide Ice Sheet from the eastern foot of the Mackenzie Mountains and the Mackenzie River valley that began around 14,000 years ago, and to gain better understanding of the dynamics of how the ice left the region and development of large lakes that occupied the valleys. The research team will attempt to quan...


NASA ABoVE Airborne Campaign 2018 Addendum
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The extended Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) Study Area includes most of northwestern North America west of Hudson Bay and north and east of the coastal mountain ranges. The core study area includes 4 jurisdictions: Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. It encompasses the variability in the key types of ecosystems that are both unique to arctic and boreal regions in Nor...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Restoration – Exploring the Potential for Using Indigenous Plant Species to Revegetate Coastline Affected by Permafrost Thaw Slumping
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1) create a series of maps showing the thaw slump activity along the Beaufort Sea Coast near Tuktoyaktuk; 2) develop detailed water, vegetation, and ground temperature maps of the study sites using drones; 3) examine the effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of landscape-level runoff to the Beaufort Sea; 4) examine the effects of coastal erosion ...


Online Digital Hazard Maps of Landslides Along the Caribou Hills
Principal Investigator: Giff, Garfield
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The main objective of the project is to develop and disseminate through a geoportal, hazard maps and additional information to support the development and implementation of climate change adaptation strategies for the Caribou Hills. Within the geoportal, spatial and non-spatial information will be available to inform: regulations, the community of the possible danger, vulnerability assessments, th...


Hydrological Remote Sensing
Principal Investigator: Berg, Aaron A
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: Our research has three main objectives: 1. to monitor the spatial variability of soil moisture at approximately a 10km resolution in the region of Trail Valley Creek (TVC); 2. to test the soil moisture retrieval algorithms in high organic soils through both satellite based measurements; and, 3. to measure and model the mass wasting at retrogressive thaw slumps as a function of debris thickness...


PermASAR - Airborne SAR campaign on permafrost soils and boreal forests in the Canadian North-West
Principal Investigator: Hajnsek, Irena
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: Collection of microwave radar backscatter data of permafrost and boreal forest at wavelengths of 3cm (X-band), 6cm (C-band), 10cm (S-band) and 23cm (L-band). This process will capture two stable permafrost active layer states: thawed and frozen. The research team will derive information about permafrost (e.g. soil status, soil moisture) and about forest (e.g. structure, biomass) from collected dat...


Drivers and constraints of ecological change in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objectives of this research are: 1) to use remote sensing (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, Airphotos, UAVs, etc.) to document regional landscape change (tundra fire, infrastructure, saline flooding, slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, lake drainage / expansion, etc.); and, 2) to use field sampling and monitoring to determine the causes and impacts of regional changes in vegetation, and permafr...


Remote Sensing and Geophysics of Tundra Landscapes
Principal Investigator: Ullmann, Tobias
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The proposed project will investigate the possibility of linking field-measured characteristics of tundra landscapes (e.g., active layer thickness, soil moisture, plant distribution and ecosystem composition, etc.) with remotely-sensed data. The overall objective of the project is to identify the connections that exist between observable surface properties and their associated subsurface/permafros...


Yukon-Northwest Seismic Network: Characterizing Earthquakes and Earth Structures
Principal Investigator: Audet, Pascal
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to continue the detection and characterization of earthquakes occurring within the northern Canadian Cordillera (Mackenzie Mountains) and surrounding areas, which are one the most seismically active areas of Canada; and 2) to study the Earth structures at large depths (0 to 100 km) to understand the formation and evolution of the Cordillera. To this ...
