Influence of changing active-layer thickness on permafrost peatland trace gas exchanges and carbon balance
Principal Investigator: Sonnentag, Oliver
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2019 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2013
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5221. The project is the continuation of year-round eddy covariance measurements of carbon, water and energy fluxes at Scotty Creek, established in 2013. The key methodology is tower-mounted micrometeorological measurements around the eddy covariance technique using an open-path infra-red gas analyzer and a sonic anemome...


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 ...


The frontline of permafrost thaw: a transect of eddy covariance towers across the southern Taiga Plains to better understand changing regional carbon and water budgets
Principal Investigator: Sonnentag, Oliver
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2019 2018 2018 2017 2016 2015
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5219. Through this project the research group will address the following objectives: What is the net effect of permafrost thawing induced biophysical and biogeochemical feedbacks to the climate system? How do these two types of feedback differ between the sporadic and discontinuous permafrost zones? Is the reported decrease...


Dene Béré (Country Foods) Campaign
Principal Investigator: Andrew, Leon
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5048. The aim of this project is to support adaptation of Dene be´re´ (Dene be´re´) systems to climate change through a harvesting and sharing program that includes hunters, women and youth. To do so, the research team propose to increase the communication of knowledge on Dene be´re´ and to build a community harvesting pilo...


Food Systems Research in Kakisa
Principal Investigator: Spring, Andrew
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020 2019 2018
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5200. The objectives of this research project are to: 1. foster training and knowledge sharing to ensure that traditional foods continue to provide an important component of affordable, sustainable healthy food system for Ka'a'gee Tu First Nation; 2. conduct a detailed needs assessment for a food security and climate chan...


Aquatic ecosystems in the Fort Good Hope area as indicators of environmental change
Principal Investigator: Comte, Jerome
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4823. The purpose of this work is to identify indicators of aquatic ecosystem health i.e., organisms such as bacteria, phytoplankton and invertebrates that are sensitive to environmental forces and play key role in aquatic food webs, to monitor and predict the response of aquatic ecosystems to environmental changes (e.g. pe...


Permafrost and climate change, western Arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5214. The objective is to continue monitoring change in ground temperatures, seasonal thaw depth (active layer), subsidence of the ground, change in vegetation, and thawing of ice wedges. The research team compare these data with the results of computer forecasts of how things may change with climate warming. The team hope ...


Mapping for Ground Ice along the ITH
Principal Investigator: Alvarez, Alejandro
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5100. The objectives of this study are to: 1) evaluate the geologic setting including geochemistry, and dating of sediments to establish a regional history of the area; 2) investigate the geologic setting of multiple buried, massive ice bodies; and 3) develop a geologic and hazards map along the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highwa...


Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5181. The combined temperature and active layer monitoring network extends from Fort Simpson to the Arctic Coast. With monitoring instrumentation already in place through work under previous licenses, the main work of this phase will be data collection. While different parts of the network can be visited at different times ...


Carving out Climate Testimony: Inuit Youth, Wellness & Environmental Stewardship
Principal Investigator: Bagelman, Jennifer
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5086. This project addresses Arctic Ecosystems and their Impact on Inuit Communities. This project asks the two-fold question: how does climate change impact Inuit youth and what are the resilience factors that enhance well-being? The project is especially interested in innovative forms of adaptation key to continued surviv...
