Characterization of permafrost cores from the Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Corridor, NWT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Alvarez, Alejandro
Licensed Year(s): 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4610. The objectives of this study are to: 1) evaluate the geologic setting including geochemistry, and radiocarbon ages to establish a regional history of the area; 2) investigate the geologic setting of multiple buried ice bodies; and 3) develop a geologic map along the southern Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway (ITH) highlighti...


Whati Permafrost Vulnerability Mapping
Principal Investigator: Bonnaventure , Philip P.
Licensed Year(s): 2020 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4631. The goal of this project is to create a permafrost hazard/vulnerability map of the community of Whati, NT. In addition to the general map, ideal location(s) for future graveyard and residential development will be identified. The three main deliverables outlined in conversations with representatives from Whati ar...


Mechanical and thermal design of embankments built on permafrost
Principal Investigator: Doré, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4562. The main objective is to develop a practical method for the mechanical and thermal design of embankments built on permafrost based on the properties of the active layer and of the permafrost as well as the loading conditions. The development of decision-making tools to select the optimal course and the optimal embankm...


Dehcho Collective on Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Sioui, Miguel PS
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4512. The overall objective is to generate a fusion of leading-edge scientific and Indigenous knowledge on permafrost, and use it as a basis to co-develop new predictive decision support tools and innovative risk management strategies to inventory and manage permafrost and adapt to permafrost thaw. This program will co-d...


ABoVE Permafrost Dynamics Observatory
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective of this project is to collect physical and geophysical measurements quantifying permafrost susceptibility to ABoVE's internationally-available dataset. Researchers can access these data to bolster understanding of environmental processes and the ability to remotely-sense these on a regional scale. Airborne remote sensing missions from August 2017, 2018, and August of 2019 by NASA'...


Self-stabilization of thaw slumps
Principal Investigator: Doré, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The research team are studying the natural stabilization of thaw slumps in the aim to eventually develop adapted management strategies for infrastructure at risk. The specific objectives are to assess the variations of thaw slump stabilization across landscapes, regions, and climates; and to assess the positive and negative feedback effects controlling the natural stabilization of thaw slumps....


The effect of permafrost slumping on carbon delivery from land to water
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The objective of this study is to understand how permafrost slumping increases the mobilization of carbon from land to water, and the effects of this transport on stream ecosystems and the global carbon cycle. This summer, the research team will measure streamwater chemistry at a series of sites draining from the Peel Plateau, near where they enter the Mackenzie Delta. At one site (Stony Creek), t...


Permafrost and climate change, western Arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: The objective of this research is to understand the rate of ground warming in permafrost due to climate change and to measure the changes in ground surface characteristics that are occurring as a result. In particular, the research team are interested in changes in ground temperature, in the depth of the active layer, and in subsidence of the ground. The team are also interested in measuring how q...


Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) to provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain conditions (specifically ground temperature and active layer thickness) and improve characterization of terrain sensitivity in the Mackenzie Valley; 2) to monitor ground temperature and active layer to detect changes in permafrost conditions resulting from surface disturbance or climate change and to ...


Drivers and constaints of ecological change in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This license has been issued for the scientific research application No.4431. The objectives of this research are: 1) to 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) to use field sampling and monitoring to d...
