Developing Remote Sensing Tools for Mapping Linear Disturbances in the Sahtu Region of the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Cole, Sarah E
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective is to develop a current and complete development footprint for a designated area of the Central Mackenzie Valley, Northwest Territories (NWT), that includes specified disturbance attributes; captures an estimate of current recovery state; and, provides data to predict disturbance recovery trajectories and project footprint change over time. Anthropogenic disturbance features will ...


RADARSAT Observations of River Ice and Flood Patterns in the Mackenzie River Delta
Principal Investigator: van der Sanden, Josephus J
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2012 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this research is to investigate the potential of Canada’s RADARSAT satellites as a tool for the collection of information on (change in) river ice conditions and, during spring breakup, flood conditions in the Mackenzie River Delta. Canada’s RADARSAT satellites will be tasked to acquire a time series of images over the Mackenzie Delta from October 2008 to July 2009. To facilita...


An Evaluation of Satellite Data to Detect and Monitor Vegetation Responses to Climate Warming at Treeline
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Cheryl M.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher will continue to determine what density of trees is necessary for detection by the satellite sensors. To determine what are the densities of shrubs and herbs or dwarf shrubs and lichens that change the reflectance patterns from the understory. To determine if the thresholds in density will be sensitive enough to monitor vegetation responses to climate change in the forest to tundra ...


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...
