This project combines the ongoing monitoring program of the same title (Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT) and the activities previously undertaken by the project title, “Active Layer Monitoring Network in the Mackenzie Valley”.
The objectives of this study are to provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain condit...

This ongoing survey examines permafrost so as to better understand how the active layer varies locally and regionally and how it will respond to environmental change, including but not restricted to climate change. The research team will survey from Fort Simpson to the Arctic Coast in July and August. Commercial contractors may take measurements in August or September near Inuvik and Norman Well...

To determine the degree of recovery of crude oil spills made in 1972 and 1973 on taiga at Norman Wells and tundra at Tuktoyaktuk. To determine the effects of a 1975 diesel oil spill on taiga at Norman Wells and to compare the effects with crude oil spills made in comparable terrain. To examine the pattern of vegetational recovery of these areas. To examine the effects of crude oil spills made o...
