Using Inuvialuit Observations to Monitor Environmental Conditions in the Mackenzie Delta Region of the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Bennett, Trevor D
Licensed Year(s): 2010
Summary: The primary objective of this research involves testing a strategy for using Inuvialuit Knowledge to monitor environmental conditions in the Mackenzie Delta Region (MDR) of the Northwest Territories. Methods will include participatory photo mapping, community mapping, and photo elicitation interviews to monitor, record, document and communicate Inuvialuit observations of environmental change in th...

Sand-wedge development, Tuktoyaktuk Coastlands
Principal Investigator: Murton, Julian B
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2001
Summary: The objectives of this research are to: describe upward growing and downward growing sand wedges; identify the relationships between wind caused sedimentation, deflation and thermal contraction cracking; and, collect samples of sand from wedges and their host material in order to estimate rates of wedge growth. The fieldwork will be based at two small fly camps at Johnson Bay and Mason Bay. The...

Stratigraphy of coastal barriers and under-ice current measurements at Atkinson Point, Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Hequette, Arnaud
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The Canadian Beaufort Sea coast undergoes rapid changes in formation, including the formation and changes of spits and barrier islands. Climatic change, combined with a rise in sea levels, could result in longer ice-free periods, increased wave action and higher rates of coastal retreat and erosion. By measuring spits and barrier islands, analyzing the make-up of the coastal sediments, and measu...

Multi-year study of high arctic periglacial processes and related quaternary history
Principal Investigator: Washburn, A.L.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: Dr. Washburn and his assistant will continue the investigation of how the landscape has changed since the glaciers left 10 000 years ago. In particular, he is examining the effects of frost and permafrost on the landscape....

Glacimarine Sedimentation in Canon Fiord, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Gilbert, Robert
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: A special type of echo sounder will be used to determine the depth of the water and the thickness of the sediments beneath down to bedrock. The instrument also shows the patterns of sediment distribution around the fiord. From these results, an assessment can be made of where the sediment has come from, how much there is and how the patterns of sedimentation have changed during the entire period...
