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 ...

A Multi-scale Assessment of Cumulative Impacts in the Northern Mackenzie Basin
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: Objective 1: To use satellite imagery (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, etc.) to document the rate and extent of landscape change (slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, etc.) in the northern Mackenzie Basin. To quantify landscape disturbances and vegetation regeneration patterns since 1985 the research team will obtain Landsat satellite images that will provide reflectance measurements covering a 1...

Northern Native Seed Development Field Trials
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this sub-project is to continue assessing the performance of native plants which were seeded and transplanted into field plots in 2006 and 2007. The research team intend to collect data regarding winter survival, seedling emergence, and overall plant vigor and productivity in order to assess each species' and collection's suitability for use in land reclamation in the NWT. The ...

Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Permafrost landforms are shrinking in response to climate warming. The researchers want to measure the amount of change each year and to measure the temperature of the permafrost year-round. In addition they want to measure the rate of plant recovery on disturbed areas resulting from the CANOL Project (1942-45). Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan ...

Diamond Mine Reclamation in the NWT: Substrates, Soil Amendments and Native Plant Community Development
Principal Investigator: Naeth, M. Anne
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2009 2008 2005
Summary: The objectives of this research are to: 1. Native shrub establishment: Determine the effect of season of seeding/planting on shrub establishment and survival. 2. Effect of microtopography: Determine the effect of microsites (boulders, rocks, soil mounds and pockets) on plant emergence and establishment, as well as how they influence soil structure. 3. Effect of stockpiled topsoil: Investigate t...

Northern Native Plant Development Collections in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Seccombe-Hett, Pippa
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: This project has been designed in order to develop technologies utilized to propagate and cultivate native plant species. The main deliverable will ultimately provide a system where-by these species will become available for commercial production and use in revegetation and reclamation in the Northwest Territories. The need for native plant seed for reclamation and restoration has been identified ...

2005 Route and Site Reconnaissance in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The objective of this study is to complete several helicopter flights for the purposes of pipeline and site reconnaissance and geotechnical observation. The activities will be conducted to: review the proposed location for a potential gas pipeline through the Sahtu Settlement Area (SSA), including identifying areas where mitigation measures may be required during or after construction such as stee...

2005 Route and Site Reconnaissance in the Gwich’in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The route and site reconnaissance activities will be used to: review the proposed location for a potential pipeline route through the Gwich’in Settlement Area (GSA); revisit or determine the optimal locations for proposed gas compression facilities near Inuvik; revisit or determine the optimal locations for infrastructure sites, roads, granular resource sites and potential revegetation test sites;...

Chevron North Langley Sump Revegetation Project
Principal Investigator: Soppet, Dayle
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: Chevron Canada Resources, representing its joint venture partners, conducted a drilling program on Langley Island during winter 2003. Restoration of the salvaged top layer of material on the sump is complete, and the next stage is revegetation of the sum...

Tree Regeneration on Seismic Lines
Principal Investigator: Greene, David F
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The purpose of this three-year project is to identify the factors that promote or retard forest regrowth after seismic line cutting. Oil and gas development in the Mackenzie Valley has the potential to heavily impact the region's slow-growing forests....
