Wetland status, change, and seasonal inundation dynamics for assessing the vulnerability of waterfowl habitat within the ABoVE study domain
Principal Investigator: French, Nancy H
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2020 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5205. The main project goal is to characterize changes in waterfowl habitat using remote sensing approaches developed during prior NASA ABoVE research campaigns. The first objective is to create wetland type and surface inundation products (maps) for the ABoVE boreal region. The second objective is to assess the efficacy of...


CoMet 2.0 Arctic
Principal Investigator: Fix, Andreas
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5211. This project will use aircraft-based instruments using both remote-sensing and in-situ-techniques to carry out measurements of methane and carbon trace gases and tracers related to their emissions. The results will help to better understand the global methane and carbon cycle. This mission makes use of the German r...


Constraining the timing of key evolutionary events during the Cambrian ‘explosion’
Principal Investigator: Smith, Martin R
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5298. The aim of this research project is to develop new quantitative tools to infer evolutionary processes from the geological record, with a particular focus on the origin of animal ecosystems in the ‘Cambrian explosion’, an event that marked the onset of diverse complex animal life. Through fieldwork in the June Lake ...


NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) Airborne Initiative 2022
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5304. The extended ABoVE Study Area includes most of northwestern North America west of Hudson Bay and north and east of the coastal mountain ranges. It encompasses the variability in the key types of ecosystems that are both unique to arctic and boreal regions in North America as well as being representative of the larger ...


Climate and human-mediated range shifts of plants in the NWT, Canada, and impacts to native plant and soil communities
Principal Investigator: Singer, Claire L
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5272. The proposed research aims to measure the extent of non-native plant spread into natural areas in the NWT, assess the impact of this spread to native plant and soil communities, and assess the risk of invasion from plants in neighbouring jurisdictions. Sampling plots at increasing distances from the roadside or ri...


Understanding A Woman's Journey to give Birth: A Community Engagement Photovoice Project
Principal Investigator: Cruz, Sheila
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5292. The aim is to understand what the escort policy means to the pregnant women and the escorts and what impacts it has on the overall birthing experience. The objectives of this study are: 1) To understand the relationship of the escort to the pregnant woman and the rationale for escort choice when travelling to give bir...


NTPC Little Buffalo and Slave River Walleye Habitat Study
Principal Investigator: Miller, Matthew
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5199. The objectives of the study will be to identify the locations and fish habitat where Walleye spawn on the Little Buffalo and Slave Rivers to determine the timing period for migration and spawning in these areas. The Study would involve fisheries technical experts, academics, and local groups (e.g. Aboriginal Aquatic R...


NWT-wide Community based Water Quality Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Somers, Gila L
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4762. Water Quality Monitoring equipment is deployed at over 40 sites across the NWT to address community concerns. Community members were trained to use the following equipment: • Sondes: sit in the water and measure basic water quality parameters every 2 hours for up to 3 months. Analysis undertaken at Environment and...


Tectonic studies of the Rae craton and flanking orogenic systems
Principal Investigator: Thiessen, Eric
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5095. This research will be guided by three objectives: 1) determine the largest possible contribution of mantle-derived heat sources; 2) establish a modern structural and tectono-metamorphic framework; and 3) evaluate evidence for mantle-derived heat input. Studies will involve field observations and targeted small-vol...


The Nonacho Group Sedimentary Rocks
Principal Investigator: Fischer, Beth J
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5098. The research team would like to know the age of each formation of the Nonacho sedimentary rocks. Is the oldest formation a lot older than the youngest, or only a bit older? The team would like to know more about the sources of the Nonacho sediments. What types of bedrock were eroded to make those sediments? Did rivers...
