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 ...


Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Mamet, Steven D
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Objectives of this research project are to determine: 1) the status of permafrost landforms; 2) long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No. 1 project, including oil spills and gravel pits; and, 3) the status of the treeline. Sampling protocols for permafrost include thaw depth probing, automated monitoring stations The research team will be examining the permafrost by thaw depth prob...


Permafrost in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steve V
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The primary objectives of this research are: 1) to develop and test new methods of monitoring permafrost landscape change; 2) to investigate the impacts of natural and human disturbance on permafrost terrain and the ground temperature conditions in natural environments and in communities; and 3) assess the physical and chemical characteristics of permafrost. To achieve the objectives the resear...


Landscape Response from Altering Ice-Rich Terrain
Principal Investigator: Lamoureux, Scott F
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The goal of this study is to understand landscape response following ice-rich terrain alteration. The research team will install temperature loggers in 2" PVC pipe from the surface down to 3 m depth to monitor the ground temperature evolution over the summer season in the pits. The team will also use the geophysical technique electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) to measure the amount and st...


Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This project continues the on-going monitoring program of permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT. This phase of the project is largely data collection. The specific objectives are: 1) to provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain conditions (specifically ground temperature and permafrost active layer thickness) and ...


Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Mamet, Steve D
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objectives of this project are to determine: 1) the status of permafrost landforms; 2) long-term recovery after abandonment of the CANOL No. 1 project, including oil spills and gravel pits; and, 3) Status of treeline. Since 1990, automated microclimate stations powered by solar cells have been operated in the study area. One station is located at each of five permafrost landforms called pal...


Boreal Forest Carbon Balance Studies
Principal Investigator: Layden, Ronald E.
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to increase the understanding of taiga carbon balance of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and predict into the future the impacts of climate warming on these systems. The exchange of carbon gases between the taiga and atmosphere is a significant component of the carbon balance and is dependent upon vegetation cover. The description below for the tundra site at...


Landscape Change on Banks Island.
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) To use remote sensing to document the rate and extent of landscape change on Banks Island; 2) To examine the effects of tundra disturbances using detailed field investigations; and 3) Use participatory mapping and interviews to document Inuvialuit Knowledge of Landscape Change on Banks Island. In this project the research team are using remot...


Thermal State of Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Siegfried, Dian
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2013 2010
Summary: The objective of this project is to continue an ongoing long-term monitoring of permafrost temperatures on Banks Island and Mould Bay. At these sites the research team have lost remote (satellite) communication and need to make repairs to continue receiving data. The research team are currently monitoring active layer and permafrost temperatures, active layer soil moisture, air temperature, and...


Soil Carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Phillips, Marcus R
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The goal of this research is to understand how landscape processes influence the quantity and quality of soil carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region. Particular attention will be paid to the depth distribution of soil carbon and how it is affected by differences in vegetation and soil forming processes. Key environmental differences that will be examined include forest vs. tundra and delta vs. uplan...
