Beaufort Sea Coastal Restoration – Exploring the Potential for Using Indigenous Plant Species to Revegetate Coastline Affected by Permafrost Thaw Slumping
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1) create a series of maps showing the thaw slump activity along the Beaufort Sea Coast near Tuktoyaktuk; 2) develop detailed water, vegetation, and ground temperature maps of the study sites using drones; 3) examine the effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of landscape-level runoff to the Beaufort Sea; 4) examine the effects of coastal erosion ...


Hydrological Remote Sensing
Principal Investigator: Berg, Aaron A
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: Our research has three main objectives: 1. to monitor the spatial variability of soil moisture at approximately a 10km resolution in the region of Trail Valley Creek (TVC); 2. to test the soil moisture retrieval algorithms in high organic soils through both satellite based measurements; and, 3. to measure and model the mass wasting at retrogressive thaw slumps as a function of debris thickness...


Correlation of water quality parameters of a disturbed slump and an undisturbed river bank on the east branch of the Mackenzie River.
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Jeremy R
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective is to investigate a disturbed slump site and an undisturbed river bank to measure and compare what is possibly melting/flowing/leaching into the river system possibly due to climate change. Physical descriptions of both sites combined with temperature, potential of hydrogen (pH), TSS (total suspended solids), TDS (total dissolved solids), and turbidity will be collected, analysed, an...


Effects of Climate Change and Landscape Perturbation on Arctic Tundra Lake Water Quality
Principal Investigator: Droppo, Ian G
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The overall goal of this study is to obtain information, through laboratory experiments (rainfall simulator; 2m annular flume) on sediments collected from retrogressive permafrost thaw shoreline slumps affecting numerous Arctic tundra lakes in the Mackenzie Upland Region east of the Mackenzie Delta, on the physical processes through which slump material is transported and delivered to a receiving ...
