Regional Terrain Hazards Mapping
Principal Investigator: Couture, Rejean
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The main objectives of the field reconnaissance at landslide sites are as follows: o To visit landslide sites that exhibit on-going movement in order to qualify the rate of movement; o To identify main failure mechanisms and factors that contributed to slope failures; o To validate previous data collected through airphoto interpretation and remote sensing techniques; o To collect soil samples ...

Retrogressive Thaw Slides in the Richardson Range: Climate Change Indicator
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: This is a study of retrogressive thaw sumps produced by the exposure and melting of massive ice in continuous permafrost (Richardson Range, NWT). These sumps are recently occurring and presumably a result of global climate change. This research will recognize retrogressive thaw slumps that have massive ice, identify the type of massive ice (glacier buried or segregated) and measure the rate of ...

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: For this on-going study, measurements such as maximum depth of thaw and soil surface movements recorded after the previous visit, will be collected. Monitoring apparatus will be reset this season. Sites in the Mackenzie Delta, from Tsiigehtchic to Tuktoyaktuk will be visited in April. Most sites from Fort Simpson to Tuktoyaktuk will be occupied during the summer....

Impact of climatic change on earth surface processes, Fosheim Peninsula, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Lewkowicz, Antoni G
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The aim of this ongoing research is to establish links between climate and the movements of soil. By collecting this type of data, it may be possible to determine the effect that climate changes may have on the movements of soil down slopes, into rivers and eventually into the sea....
