In discontinuous permafrost of the southern NWT, cleared transportation corridors, such as seismic lines, have recently been associated with permafrost loss, increased soil moisture and vegetation changes. Permafrost loss can lead to ground subsidence, infrastructure instability and the release of stored carbon into the atmosphere. The research team will test whether seismic lines can be construc...

Access to the site will be along existing seismic lines from Tulita. Transport will involve helicopter, boat, ATV and foot. The research camp consists of tents on frames and on platforms and a food and equipment cache contained within a solar-powered electric shock fence (bear fence). Sleeping tents are on platforms outside the bear fence and away from the cooking area. The research sites have sm...

This refraction seismic project is part of larger transect which extends from Yellowknife to Stewart on the west coast of BC. Part of the sequence of Earth & Ocean Science studies to provide an in-depth image of the deep structure of the Earth throughout the region and will help to define the sequence of emplacement of various types of rock formations in the region.
Pre-experiment: 1) Flag reco...
