Hydrological Remote Sensing
Principal Investigator: Berg, Aaron A
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The main objectives of this research are to: 1. monitor the spatial variability of soil moisture at approximately a 10km resolution in the region of Trail Valley Creek (TVC); and, 2. to test the soil moisture retrieval algorithms in high organic soils through both satellite based measurements and with the use of a ground based radiometer. To achieve the first objective, the research team will...


Variability in peat plateau energy balance and water chemistry along a warming gradient
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: This research is physically based on a peat plateau and a peat bog, both close to Yellowknife. There are two primary objectives to this research. The first involves quantifying surface energy balances in areas where degradation of peat is pronounced and where it is not. Suprapermafrost water from the degraded and non-degraded sites will be analyzed for nutrients and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) ...


Thermal State of Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Siegfried, Dian
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2013 2010
Summary: The objective of this project is to continue an ongoing long-term monitoring of permafrost temperatures on Banks Island and Mould Bay. The research team is currently monitoring active layer and permafrost temperatures, active layer soil moisture, air temperature, and snow depth at this site using a datalogger and sensors from Campbell Scientific (Logan, UT). In August, 2010 the research team vi...


ChevronTexaco Drilling Operations - Project Description Data Collection
Principal Investigator: Pyc, Cynthia
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: Soil samples will be taken from two to three potential sump sites for the 2005 drilling program. Soil samples will provide information on active layer depth, soil composite, salinity levels, permeability and moisture content to determine sump site suitab...


ChevronTexaco 2005 Drilling Operations - Project Description Data Collection
Principal Investigator: Pyc, Cynthia
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: Soil samples will be taken from four potential sump sites for the 2005 drilling program. Soil samples will provide information on active layer depth, soil composite, salinity levels, permeability and moisture content to determine sump site suitability. I...


The Effect of Great Slave Lake on Air and Surface Temperatures in Peatlands near Yellowknife
Principal Investigator: Karunaratne, Kumari C
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003
Summary: This project will examine the effect of Great Slave Lake on air and surface temperatures in peatlands near Yellowknife over a period of three years. Air and surface temperatures are components of the climate/permafrost relation, and are used in numerica...


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...


The Study of Environmental Change, Truelove Lowland, Devon Island, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: King, Roger H.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: This is a continuation of a long-term study of the record of past environmental changes preserved in the sediments of the Truelove Lowland. Sediment traps that were placed in Immerk & Loon Lake will be removed & analyzed. Also the temperature & moisture conditions of soil surrounding Fish Lake will be monitored and samples will be collected....


Licence #1899
Principal Investigator: Bliss, Lawrence
Licenced Year(s): 1975
Summary: To determine plant responses to environmental changes which result from disturbances and how surface disturbance alters soil heat and moisture regimes, for Arctic Land Use Research Program....
