Contemporary Dynamics of Forest-Tundra Ecotones in Central NWT
Principal Investigator: Danby, Ryan K
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: Objectives of this research project are to: 1) analyze Landsat satellite images to understand regional vegetation change over the past 30 years; 2) determine the timing of tree establishment as well as the climate influence on tree growth across the forest tundra transition zone over the past 300 years; and, 3. measure spruce seedling growth across the forest-tundra ecotone in relation to varia...

Remote Sensing of Arctic Vegetation Biochemistry
Principal Investigator: Kennedy, Blair E
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of the research are: (1) measure the spectral properties (i.e. how light is absorbed and reflected) and biochemical constituents (e.g. chlorophyll, water, nitrogen, carbon) of arctic vegetation at the ground-level in various vegetation communities across the Western Arctic (e.g. low-arctic to high-arctic); (2) investigate the potential of using satellite based multi-angular imaging ...

Principal Investigator: Hankinson, Flt. LT. K.W.
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1988
Summary: Multi-disciplinary research will be undertaken in botany, geology, micro meteorology, soil science, remote sensing, breeding biology of Arctic char and archaeological survey. These studies are a continuation of those begun in 1988....

An Evaluation of Data Collected by Orgiting Satellites to Detect and Monitor Arctic Surfaces
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Cheryl M.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher will examine what distinguishes arctic surfaces spatially and spectrally and which surfaces can be detected and identified by sensors on orbiting satellites, and will test the hypothesis that orbiting satellites can be used to detect and monitor thaw slumps, coastal erosion and other physical and biological manifestations of environmental change in the arctic....

Studies of Arctic Shorebirds and their Habitats in the Foxe Basin, NWT
Principal Investigator: Morrison, R.I.G.
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: This is a continuation of a project begun in 1986 to study year to year variation in breeding densities of shorebirds. The Researcher and team will determine which species of birds breed on the islands of the Foxe Basin, which habitats they use and how their numbers change from year to year. They are also interested in producing a map of the main wildlife habitats on the islands using satellite im...

Studies of Arctic Shorebirds and their Habitats in the Foxe Basin, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Morrison, R.I.G.
Licenced Year(s): 1990 1989
Summary: Dr. Morrison and his research team will gather information on the species of birds breeding on the islands of the Foxe Basin, which habitats they use and how their numbers vary from year to year. A map of the main wildlife habitats on the islands will also be made using satellite images....

Licence #4081
Principal Investigator: Timoney, Kevin, P.
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: Field sampling coupled with air photo interpretation are used to describe vegetation zonation. Objectives include: a) a delimitation of the subarctic forest-tundra ecotone; b) geographic variation in the vegetation, sorts, species ranges, and width and position of the forest-tundra....

Effects of fire on plants, animals and human land use
Principal Investigator: Wein, Ross
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To gather information on fire behaviour, the effects of fire on plants and animals, and the social implications of fire management. Satellite imagery processing, aerial photography and ground censusing will be used....

Licence #2672
Principal Investigator: Sims, Richard A.
Licenced Year(s): 1981
Summary: To continue a series of aerial surveys of reindeer rangeland. Some samples of soil and vegetation will be collectd. The objective is to set up and test various types of remote sensing techniques....

Licence #2280
Principal Investigator: Howland, William G.
Licenced Year(s): 1978
Summary: The application of remote sensing techniques to vegetation and terrain mapping....
