Principal Investigator:Graburn, Larry Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this program is to carry out aerial reconnaissance and preliminary site investigations, topographical aerial mapping, and surface reconnaissance in the general vicinity of the proposed route for the Mackenzie Gas Project. Information fro...
Principal Investigator:Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR Licenced Year(s):
This project aims to obtain a better understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. It will also identify baseline levels for natural and anthropogenic contaminants,...

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...
Principal Investigator:Egginton, Paul A. Licenced Year(s):
This year's work continues the measurement of creep (movement) of ice-rich slopes in permafrost. Landslide distribution in the lower Mackenzie Delta (Norman Wells area) is also being mapped....
Principal Investigator:Hiscott, Richard Licenced Year(s):
The Researchers will: map the geometry of debris-flow (mudflow) deposits; document bottom slopes and flow paths; relate debris-flow activity to Pleistocene history of the area and sea-bed cores and use this data to quantify the subaqueous (below water) debris-flow process....
Principal Investigator:Bennett, Lorne P. Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and his assistant will follow up research conducted at the same site between 1985-87. They will compare known rates of permafrost creep with those measured following manipulation of certain field variables (i.e. alteration of the snow cover to change the natural ground thermal regime)....
Principal Investigator:King, Lorenz Licenced Year(s):
Establishment of meterorology station at their base camp. Geodetic surveying of slopes, push moraines and raised beaches; mapping of same. Hammer seismic measurments, ground and rock temperature measurements, digging for radiocarbon and palynological samples in raised beaches and moraines, mapping of old Eskimo sites and general observations of plants and wildlife....
