Vulnerability of northern drinking water sources to environmental change
Principal Investigator: Comte, Jerome
Licensed Year(s): 2023 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5418. The overarching goal of this project is to assess the implications of climate change on drinking water quality and practices, and to implement a community-based monitoring program. Specifically, the research team will: 1) engage and work with local communities to co-design and undertake a drinking water quality monito...


Dene Béré (Country Foods) Campaign
Principal Investigator: Andrew, Leon
Licensed Year(s): 2023 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5402. 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...


Capitalizing on long-term experimental manipulations to understand and predict arctic terrestrial ecosystem responses to climate warming
Principal Investigator: Grogan, Paul
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2019
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine the biogeochemical and ecological significance of our discovery that mesic tundra plant growth can be co-limited by nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P); 2) to predict the likely impacts of not just climate change, but also declining caribou and other mammalian herbivory, on tundra deciduous and evergreen shrub abundances; and, 3) to evaluate...


Plant diversification facilitated by climate change: evolution of ancient lycopods connected with arctic, post glaciated and boreal regions
Principal Investigator: Ekrt, Libor
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5349. The purpose of the project is to study plants surviving in glaciated areas on the example of the most primitive vascular plants: the model genus Huperzia (Lycopodiophyta). The research team will study the distribution of ancestral and derived types of plants in arctic, boreal and alpine zones in context of climate cha...


Investigating the seasonality of subarctic lakes in a changing climate using satellite & field data
Principal Investigator: Kheyrollah Pour, Homa
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5335. This proposed research is directed at understanding the impact of current/future climate warming on subarctic lake ecosystems. The aim is to explore the relationship of seasonal lake ice growth/ablation and water quality across a wide range of lake characteristics (size, volume, productivity, catchment characteristics...


Monitoring cumulative effects to water quality: An NWT Pilot Study
Principal Investigator: Chin, Krista
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5328. The objective of this project is to collect water quality data from regionally-representative lakes that can inform resource management decisions on cumulative impacts within the Northwest Territories (NWT). Using a computer program the research team will select 30 lakes within the Daring Lake area based on expect...


Measuring and simulating permafrost thaw
Principal Investigator: Gruber, Stephan
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5114. The objectives of this project are to understand: 1) how permafrost differs in temperature and chemical/physical characteristics from place to place; 2) how these different types of permafrost react to change (climate/disturbance); and, 3) which future changes in permafrost are likely and which are less likely based o...


NWT Streams and Rivers of the future: How permafrost thaw and groundwater activation are changing water resources (CIMP226)
Principal Investigator: Wright, Stephanie
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5294. The purpose of this study has four objectives: 1) Assess the spatial and temporal patterns of hydrologic change (groundwater and surface water) in the La Martre River and Trout River catchments (O1); 2) Identify the drivers, processes, and feedbacks responsible for the hydrologic changes identified in O1 and how they ...


Drivers and constraints of ecological change in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5277. The objectives of this research are: 1) Use remote sensing (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, Airphotos, UAVs, etc.) to document regional landscape change (tundra fire, infrastructure, saline flooding, slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, lake drainage / expansion, etc.); and 2) Use field sampling and monitoring to determi...


Changing Carbon Sinks in Sub-Arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Schiff, Sherry L
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5150. The objective is to improve the quantitative understanding of carbon dynamics in Canadian subarctic freshwaters, with a focus on identifying the processes governing the balance between carbon sinks and carbon sources to the atmosphere. The research team will pair field-based observations with laboratory experiments...
