R/V Mirai Arctic Ocean cruise in 2022
Principal Investigator: KITAMURA (ITOH), Motoyo
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5177. The objective of this program is to monitor on-going Arctic changes, which are related to the recent global warming. Sea water measurements and plankton sampling are important to know oceanic ecosystem health because plankton are food for fish, seabirds and marine mammals. Microplastic pollution sampling and ocean wav...


The Hidden Image of Thawing Permafrost: Mapping Subsurface Properties and Taliks with Remote Sensing (HIT Permafrost)
Principal Investigator: Grünberg, Inge
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5196. The goal for this expedition is to collect ground-truth data for two prior airborne campaigns conducted in 2018 and 2019. The data obtained from radar remote sensing of the area around Trail Valley Creek represent a complex signal from the vegetation, active layer, and permafrost. Based on prior field expeditions, the...


Quantifying carbon fluxes and budgets of boreal forest-tundra landscapes under the influence of rapidly changing permafrost regimes
Principal Investigator: Sonnentag, Oliver
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5220. The project of the present application is the continuation of year-round eddy covariance measurements of carbon, water and energy fluxes at Trail Valley Creek and Havikpak Creek, established in 2013. The key methodology is tower-mounted micrometeorological measurements around the eddy covariance technique using an ...


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...


Indigenous Clothing Ensembles: Indigenous Knowledge and Performance Evaluations to Enhance Northern Safe Practices
