Mackenzie Valley Landslide Geotechnical Investigations
Principal Investigator: Wang, Baolin
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this research is to understand triggering of landslides and slope failure mechanisms in the Mackenzie Valley. This will enable better environmental impact assessments of infrastructure projects in the region. This research involves detailed investigation of landslides. Soil samples will be taken by digging test pits in the active layer with hand tools. Most test pits will be ...


Mackenzie Valley Landslide Geotechnical Investigations
Principal Investigator: Wang, Baolin
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006

Surficial Geology of the Mackenzie Corridor
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: It is important for researchers to improve their understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. Additionally, predictions of the impacts of climate change on the terra...


Stability of permafrost slopes in a warming climate
Principal Investigator: Dyke, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 1999
Summary: The goal of this research is to examine landslides on the slopes along the Mackenzie Valley, so that researchers can better understand their causes and the effect climate change will have on the landscape. Field work will be carried out between Wrigley and Inuvik along the Mackenzie River, with some access along the Dempster Highway. Tree increment cores will be used to determine tree age and dat...


MAGS Ground-Based Measurement Studies
Principal Investigator: Kochtubajda, Bob
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: We propose to transport ad install new automatic weather stations by truck, fixed wing and helicopter to three sites in the Fort Simpson area between mid-June through mid July 1998. The automatic weather stations are both solar-powered and battery-powered, and collect and transmit meteorological data for use in weather forecasts and warnings. The weather stations will be used to support the scien...


Active layer monitoring network in the Mackenzie Valley
Principal Investigator: Nixon, Mark
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: This season, a party of two will survey tubes between North Richards Island and Tsiigehtchic during April and from Fort Simpson to the Arctic Coast in July and August. Travel will be by road, small boat on the river and helicopter from Norman Wells and Tutoyaktuk. Access to the sites is always on foot. This year is the seventh annual survey of a network of thaw depth measuring devices (thaw tub...


Palsa Evolution in Alpine Tundra (PEAT)
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researcher and his team will determine the current status and contemporary characteristics of palsas (frozen peat mounds), and their environments within this mountainous study area. As well, they will quanititatively describe the processes affecting the evolution of these periglacial features and the potential changes in the status of these and related forms under global change models....


Development of Skinflows, Fosheim Peninsula, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Lewkowicz, Antoni G
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: Over time, hillsides slowly collapse for various reasons. Dr. Lewkowicz and his assistants are looking for a certain type of slope failure called skinflows. They want to know map the locations of skinflows in this area and they are going to measure them and determine their age by extracting some soil samples....
