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...


Recovery of boreal caribou habitat after forest fires
Principal Investigator: d'Entremont, Marc
Licensed Year(s): 2020 2019 2018
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4630. In 2015-2016, the Deninu Kue First Nation (DKFN) and LGL Limited completed a traditional use study on boreal caribou habitat and habitat use that incorporated traditional knowledge and scientific information in the identification of foraging habitat for boreal caribou in the South Slave region of the Northwest Territo...


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...


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...


A 2,000 year record of climate change from white spruce tree-rings
Principal Investigator: Porter, Trevor
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This fieldwork aims to collect ‘disk’ samples from dead trees found on the surface or partially buried in sediments. Previous research in the Campbell Dolomite Upland area reported deadwood samples dating back to AD 1060. This area is well-drained, which is the ideal environment for preserving deadwood over long periods. The research team will return to this area to search for older specimens dati...


Large wood transport in the Mackenzie River Basin
Principal Investigator: Sendrowski, Alicia
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this project are to understand the dynamics of large wood transport in the Mackenzie River and Delta by identifying the locations of wood sources and deposition, and quantifying the amount of wood that reaches the delta and the processes affecting wood transport. Using this knowledge, the research team can make estimates of carbon transport to the Arctic and improve global models...


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...
