MOSES Rapid Permafrost Thaw
Principal Investigator: Boike, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The goals for this expedition are to test new equipment for characterizing the energy fluxes from and around thermokarst slumps and to establish a baseline for future subsidence measurements. Additionally, lake and atmospheric methane concentrations in relation to thermokarst slumps will be quantified. The research team will conduct ground-truth surveys using a differential GPS. Small GPS obser...

EL462 & EL463 Aggregate and Permafrost Mapping Program
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this research is to provide a better understanding of the permafrost under EL 462 and EL 463 and to delineate potential aggregate deposits. Objectives will include mapping: permafrost distribution, massive ice bodies (including wedge ice), depth to massive ice, lower contacts of massive ice, zones of thermokarst, ice rich sediments (thaw sensitive), active layer, and aggregate de...

Great Bear River Environmental and Traditional Knowledge Baseline Program
Principal Investigator: Lennie-Misgeld, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: The main objective of the program is to collect fisheries and environmental baseline information to better understand the environmental characteristics of the Great Bear River and to support potential future development of hydropower on the Great Bear River. The program is not being conducted to support a specific project as there are no hydropower projects planned for the Great Bear River at thi...

GEM Great Bear magmatic zone/iron oxide copper-gold deposit project
Principal Investigator: Corriveau, Louise
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of the Great Bear/IOCG geoscience research and mapping project are to: • develop a modern geological, crustal architecture and exploration framework for polymetallic iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposit-type mineralizing systems in the Great Bear magmatic zone and new exploration methods for IOCG deposits in glaciated terrains; • validate deposit-type model for known mineral occu...

Investigations of the water cycle and hydrological processes of the subarctic Canadian Shield
Principal Investigator: Spence, Christopher
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The objective of the research is to determine the water cycle processes in lakes and streams affecting Baker Creek and similar streams, and more generally to understand how small scale processes influence those of larger areas. Field studies at Baker Creek, a typical Canadian Shield stream that drains ~130 km2 into Great Slave Lake, will focus on the spring melt and summer seasons. Existing i...

Regional Terrain Hazards Mapping
Principal Investigator: Couture, Réjean
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The goal of this project is to compile updated baseline information/knowledge on the types, regional distribution, and controls (e.g. forests fires, climate change) of landslides. The main objectives of the field reconnaissance at landslide sites are six-fold: 1) to validate previous data collected through air photo interpretation and remote sensing techniques; 2) to carry out detailed mapping at ...

Shoal Habitat Utilization Study
Principal Investigator: Morrison, Scott
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: Consistent with the DFO authorization, the major objectives of the study are to provide annual documentation of shoal habitat use by Lake Trout in the vicinity of the mine site, and to ground truth hydroacoustic equipment. Study locations for 2005 are as per 2004. Hydroacoustic surveys are to be conducted during the early morning or evening hours. The survey is conducted at the same time each...

Mapping and Modeling Carbon Flux in Northern Canada Related to Land Use Change
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The research team is working to become familiar with the impact of human disturbances on vegetation in northern Canada for their carbon studies. The objective of this study is to collect vegetation and biophysical data for use as verification of ground cover type and disturbance for use in satellite imagery classification and biomass and soil sampling for carbon modeling along the Ingraham Trail....

Airborne passive microwave surveys of the Snare and Yellowknife basins to estimate snow water equivalent
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: Regional estimates of snow water equivalent (SWE) are useful for climate studies, calculating how much water is stored in the snowpack, and weather forecasting. These data are available from manual surface measurements, but there not very many measureme...

2003 Route and Site Selection in the Deh Cho Region
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licensed Year(s): 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This project will involve several helicopter flights for the purposes of pipeline routing, site selection and geotechnical observation within the Deh Cho Region. During the flights, locations of important land features will be confirmed by Global Positi...
