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...


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...


Trails of the Mountain Caribou: Renewing Indigenous Relationships in Conservation
Principal Investigator: Andrew, Leon
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5157. The anticipated outcome of the plan and associated research will be a body of evidence supporting the biocultural and socioeconomic significance of the Ni´o Ne? P’e?ne?´ area, a framework for caribou conservation and habitat protection. Furthermore, the program will support establishment of Indigenous-led Guardian and...


Long-term changes in climate and fire activity in the Mackenzie Delta region
Principal Investigator: Porter, Trevor
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5216. During the 2022 field season, the main objectives are to collect tree-ring and wedge-ice samples that will be studied to better understand changes in climate over the last 11,700 years and to identify lake sites that will be suitable for lake-sediment coring in the early spring field season. This fieldwork will focus ...


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...
