ABEKS - Community Based Ecological Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Ashthorn, Heather
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4585. The objective of this project is to document and assess changing environmental conditions in the range of the porcupine caribou herd and adjacent coastal and marine ecosystems and to share information for co-management. Community based monitors are selected by local Renewable Resource Councils (RRCs) or Hunters and...


Community-based monitoring of whitefish in the lower Mackenzie River watershed
Principal Investigator: Hovel, Rachel A
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective of this project is to maintain a community-based monitoring program in the communities of Fort McPherson, Aklavik, and Tsiigehtchic. Data collected in this community-based monitoring program and other previous research has shown that ocean-migrating broad whitefish use the Peel River as spawning habitat, and that these fish also make extensive migrations between rivers in the lowe...


Self-stabilization of thaw slumps
Principal Investigator: Doré, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The research team are studying the natural stabilization of thaw slumps in the aim to eventually develop adapted management strategies for infrastructure at risk. The specific objectives are to assess the variations of thaw slump stabilization across landscapes, regions, and climates; and to assess the positive and negative feedback effects controlling the natural stabilization of thaw slumps....


NASA ABoVE Airborne Campaign 2019
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4499. This airborne field campaign will link studies conducted on the ground with data collected through satellite remote sensing, enabling a deeper understanding of the vulnerability and resilience of these ecosystems, and how people within and beyond this region are responding to change. The ABoVE airborne campaigns can p...


Using Novel Technology to Survey Methane Emissions in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Risk, Dave
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The research team will use the newly develop ExACT (Emissions Attribution via Computational Techniques) system, a completely novel and innovative approach to survey gas emissions from natural and manmade sources. ExACT consists of computer algorithms applied to geo-located multi-gas data collected during vehicle-based surveys. Data collection involves a combination of multi-gas analyzers, targetin...


NSERC Canadian Lake Pulse Network: more than 660 Canadian lakes sampled over three summers.
Principal Investigator: Huot, Yannick
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective of this project is to evaluate and compare complex and abundant lake ecosystems. This will be addressed through answering these 4 core questions: 1. Where, by how much and why Canadian lakes have changed during the last centuries? 2. How do taxonomic, molecular and biochemical features of planktonic, benthic and microbial communities change with lake alteration and which ones can...


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.

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...
