Accurate estimates of the bulk density or specific gravity, tilt angle and average diameter of various size classes must be established. This study focuses on collection and validation of these estimates, recognizing that they may indeed change, dependin...

The researcher will measure changes in ground temperatures by data loggers and on ground temperature cables that were installed several years ago. The researcher will measure both uplift of the ground by surveying, and sideways movement of the ground due to growth of ice wedges. The researcher will also measure air, ground, and lake water temperatures and ice thickness, to find out how these a...

Burned areas of different ages have been identified from fire-history maps and data bases provided by the Forest Management Division of the NWT in Fort Smith. Chosen fires are located along the Highways 1, 2 and 5. Access and transportation will therefore be by car/truck. The exact location of the sites will be documented by using GPS-equipment. A total of three sites (Jack Pine, Black Spruce ...
