Water and leaf wax isotopes in permafrost
Principal Investigator: Porter, Trevor
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The primary objectives of this research project are to collect frozen core samples from the top of permafrost and soil from the active layer. Boreal sites will be targeted. The stable isotope compositions of ice and leaf waxes from the samples will be measured. Samples collected from NWT will be added to a much larger Yukon dataset, and the relations between regional climate and the proxies will b...

Analysis of Oxygen-18 Isotope Rates From Northern Alaska and Canada
Principal Investigator: Masse, Tom
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team proposes to collect ice cores and liquid water from the Mackenzie River adjacent to the Town of Inuvik. The research team will then examine the concentration of the naturally occuring, stable isotope of oxygen (oxygen -18) in these ice and water samples, and determine how these concentrations differ in Northern Alaska and Canada. All samples will be taken to the University of A...
