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...

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...
