Satellite Monitoring for Assessing Resource Developmentā€™s Impact on Bathurst Caribou (SMART)
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: We have two specific objectives over the next three years: 1) to improve the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the zone of influence (ZOI) from resource development disturbed areas in the Bathurst caribou habitat, and their relationships with caribou habitat use and productivity, by integrating traditional knowledge, field surveys, and remote sensing technology; and, 2) to investig...


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 ...


Geology of the Tunnunik impact structure, Victoria Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: Osinski, Gordon
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2012
Summary: This project seeks to carry out the first detailed study of the newly discovered Tunnunik impact structure, located on Victoria Island, NWT. The research team will carry out field mapping and conduct gravity, ground magnetic, and seismic surveys, and sample for paleomagnetic studies. They will also ground-truth a remote predictive map generated with Radarsat-2 and other satellite data. The goal...


EarthScope Transportable Array
Principal Investigator: Busby, Robert W
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: This project consists of a large deployment of ground motion sensors (294 total) throughout Alaska and western Canada; 44 located in Yukon Territory and 7 in the Northwest Territory. Each station senses the ground movement from distant earthquakes and sends data via satellite or radio modem to a central receiving point in San Diego. The purpose of collecting these data is to study deep geologic st...


Tracking environmental change in the Neoproterozoic Sheepbed and Keele Formations, Mackenzie Mountains, Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: Sperling, Erik A
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective is to collect high quality and high resolution stratigraphic and sedimentological data of the Sheepbed and Keele Formations at their type localities, along with accompanying samples for geochemical and petrological analysis. Specifically, the overall goal is to understand how these formations at their type sections relates to their correlatives throughout northwestern Canada, and det...


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 ...


Landscape scale flooding in the Great Slave Lake Plain
Principal Investigator: Armstrong, Terry
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objectives are to draw together multiple sources of information so that we may (1) examine change in lake area in this ecoregion, (2) assess amount of meadow habitat lost to rising water levels in core bison range, (3) investigate whether recent changes are part of a longer-term cycle and evaluate the causes of this change, (4) determine a way to document and integrate local and traditional kn...


Baseline Monitoring of Arctic Vegetation and Snow Changes over the Bathurst Caribou Habitat using Satellite Remote Sensing and Community-based Field Observations
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: The goals of this research project are: 1. To fill the information gap on Bathurst caribou summer range conditions using satellite remote sensing data and community-based ground vegetation monitoring 2. To develop a cumulative impact assessment method that makes cumulative impact assessment possible even if data are incomplete and provides timely feedback for guiding the refinement of monitoring...


Environmental Studies for EL470
Principal Investigator: Jenkins, Cyril H
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The goals of this research project are: 1. Biophysical Assessments: Monitoring and On-going Collection of Data Biophysical assessments will be completed during snow-free conditions, with most activity occurring between early June and mid-August, though some work, such as select wildlife investigations, may occur year round. Weather and other logistical considerations may modify the timing of a...


Geoscientific project to study the application of optical spectroscopic remote sensing to detection of the base metal mineralization in the Izok Lake deposit area
Principal Investigator: Peter, Jan M.
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The overall aim is to evaluate the use of optical reflected light spectra (so-called hyperspectral remote sensing) collected from rock outcrops and drill cores in detecting (hydrothermal alteration) minerals that are associated with the base metal mineralization. The aim of this research project is to collect reflected light spectra in the visible, near infrared, and shortwave infrared regions ...
