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 ...

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 ...

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....

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....
