Massive Ice Study in Granular Deposits
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: This study is an investigation of massive ice in granular deposits in the Mackenzie Delta area and northeastern North Slave region. In March, the team will travel by truck on existing winter roads or by helicopter from Inuvik to sites in the Mackenzie De...

Paleohydrological and Paleoecological Reconstruction of the Mackenzie Basin Deltas
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Brent BBW
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This project will formulate a comprehensive history of the frequency and magnitude of floods and droughts and corresponding ecological responses in the Mackenzie Basin deltas over the past 1000 years. Results from this study will provide an essential dat...

Using Tree Rings and Lake Sediment to Reconstruct Streamflow and Climate in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Lamoureux, Scott F
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The objective of the research is to supplement and extend instrumental climatological and hydrological records in the NWT using dendrochronology (tree-ring) and varved lake sediment analysis. Transportation to the site will be by charter aircraft from Fo...

Alternate Forest Products: A Dynamic Time and Space Model of Driftwood Along the Lower Mackenzie River
Principal Investigator: Wein, Ross
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001
Summary: Methods include surveys of community elders to understand how driftwood is harvested and how many logs were harvested historically and at present. Remote sensing techniques will be used to quantify the inventory of riverside trees, the rates of bank erosion and the inventory of logs on the riverbanks. Rates of log movements will be estimated using river hydrology data and mark-recapture approaches...

Spring Melt Hydrological Investigations at Daring Lake, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Tthe objective of this study is to continue research examining the hydrological and energy budget of small arctic esker lake basin during the spring melt period. The intent of this research is to understand the relationship between the energy budget and changes in soil moisture, rates of evapotranspiration, and changes in water discharge from a small tundra basin underlain by permafrost. Transpo...

Measuring Tundra Productivity and Vegetation Structure Using Satellite Imagery
Principal Investigator: O'Brien, Daniel
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: An understanding of arctic vegetation structure, composition and productivity is critical to climate change monitoring, wildlife management and sustainable resource management. Remote sensing could prove to be an effective tool for studies in the arctic because the region is large and hard to reach. Satellite imagery will be used to estimate productivity of the land and this will be compared to ...

Mackenzie Basin Impact Study: Land Assessment
Principal Investigator: Cohen, Stewart
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The Mackenzie Basin Impact Study will assess the potential impacts of global climatic change on the region. The component on land assessment will determine possible changes in land capability. Information on resource management goals is needed so that the study can can assess whether changes in land capability might lead to conflicts over land use....

The Nature and Origin of Ground Ice in the High Arctic and Icing as a Hydrologic Component of Northern Drainage Basins
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: The researchers will gain a better understanding of permafrost conditions of the study area and the environmental conditions under which permafrost formed and evolved. They will also investigate icings and icing processes, since icings are a hydrologic phenomenon and their occurance has implications for recharge and runoff of drainage systems and water resource management....

Digital Database of Vegetation Types of the Mackenzie Valley Development Corridor
Principal Investigator: Squires Taylor, Cindy
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The Researcher will conduct a survey, approximately 30 km on either side of the Mackenzie River using satellite imagery. A classification will be undertaken of the area from the Mackenzie Delta to the Fort Simpson area, with wider zones along the east side to include proposed pipeline routes. The information can be plotted as colour maps to show the location of trap lines, forest fires or wildlife...
