Improving the transfer of agricultural knowledge and technology in northern Canada through a technology innovation systems (TIS) approach
Principal Investigator: Seguin, Rose
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this research is to develop a holistic framework that identifies the challenges to northern agricultural development from an environmental, technical and sociopolitical standpoint. This study will target the following research questions: 1.Which agricultural production systems are most commonly used in northern Canada? 2.What are the primary factors affecting the diffusion rate...


Community Partnership to Create a Comprehensive Approach to Family Violence in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Moffitt, Pertice M
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this research are to engage community partners in co-creation of best practices to prevent family violence, to share findings of a scoping review on best practices to prevent /end family violence, and to hear priorities from these implications from youth and elders in the communities. Demographic data (age, ethnicity, gender and exposure to violence) will be collected to desc...


Paleozoic rift history of western Laurentia as recorded in Yukon-NWT-Alaska
Principal Investigator: Cobbett, Rose
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective is to use geochemistry (composition of rocks) and geochronology (dating of rocks) to characterize volcanic rocks in order to better understand the environment that they were formed in and in turn learn about the tectonic history of western North America through Paleozoic time (~541 - 252 Million years). Results will be published in a series of Yukon Geological Survey publications, se...


From Archaea to the Atmosphere: Integrating Microbial, Isotopic and Landscape-Scale Observations to Quantify Methane Emissions from Global High-Latitude Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Varner, Ruth K
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The aim of this project is to combine remote sensing data, field measurements and biogeochemical modeling to improve methane emissions estimates from thawing permafrost peatland landscapes at local, regional and global scales. To accomplish this, the research team will integrate data on water table and vegetation from remote sensing (satellites, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAVs)), with local measurem...


Understanding the Interactions between Wildfire Disturbance, Landscape Hydrology and Post-Fire Recovery in Boreal-Taiga Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Bourgeau-Chavez, Laura L.
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The overall goal of the research is to improve understanding of the controls and impacts of a changing climate on the vulnerability and resiliency of boreal-taiga ecosystems to wildfire. This is being addressed through field sampling and process-based ecological and hydrological modeling of the 2014-2016 wildfires of southern NWT. To conduct the proposed research, the research team will addres...


Where on Earth is fire-derived carbon stored?
Principal Investigator: Abiven, Samuel
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective is to measure the age and stock of organic carbon derived from wildfires (fire-derived carbon) in the Mackenzie River region, and examine long- and short-term processes controlling the size and distribution of fire-derived carbon stocks in soils. The research team will measure fire-derived carbon stocks in soils and determine its age (radiocarbon dating) at four different location...


Neoproterozoic stratigraphy, Mackenzie Mountains II
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective of this research is to addresses the history of Earth-surface environments between 1 billion and 700 million years ago. The objective for 2019 is to complete a sample suite used by a Master of Science student. Each base-camp of 2 people will be deployed by helicopter, and after that, all work will be done on foot, with no motorised equipment. Working on mountainside exposures, the...


Howards Pass Access Road (HPAR) Proposed 2019 Baseline Programs
Principal Investigator: Morison, Stephen R
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Proposed surface water and sediment quality and quantity programs involves two rounds of field sampling proposed in mid-July to early August and in late September 2019, to capture typical summer stream flows and low stream flow conditions. Each field program may take between eight to ten days. The objectives of the programs are to confirm and update the fluvial geomorphic classification of each st...


Improving colorectal cancer screening in northern Canada using participatory simulation modelling
Principal Investigator: Kuziemsky, Craig
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This project aims to employ an evidence-based simulation modelling approach to estimate the endoscopy resources required to support a Fecal Immunohistochemical Testing (FIT)-based territorial screening program in the NWT and propose effective solutions to meet those requirements that are patient-centred, culturally competent and feasible within a rural and remote health system. To populate the ...


Drivers of Optimal Functioning across the Transition into the Workforce
Principal Investigator: Morin, Alexandre
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This study, funded by the Canadian Humanities Research Council and piloted at Concordia University, seeks to identify the various personal, academic, and professional factors that can help students succeed, both at the human and professional level, in their transition into the workforce after completing vocational, technical or university training programs. Completing one's education and starti...
