Geometry and Kinematic History of the Howard's Pass Zn-Pb District
Principal Investigator: Kamal, Darius
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4979. The goal of this project is to map the regional structural geometry outside of the Howard's Pass district to integrate the timing and geometry of deformation into the interpretation at Howard's Pass and how Cretaceous deformation as affected the Zn-Pb ore bodies and the surrounding region. The March Fault structure wa...


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...


Wetland status, change, and seasonal inundation dynamics for assessing the vulnerability of waterfowl habitat within the ABoVE study domain
Principal Investigator: French, Nancy H
Licensed Year(s): 2020 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4624. The main project goal is to characterize changes in waterfowl habitat using remote sensing approaches developed during prior NASA ABoVE research campaigns. The first objective is to create wetland type and surface inundation products (maps) for the ABoVE boreal region. The second objective is to assess the efficacy of...


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...


Deglaciation of the NW Laurentide Ice Sheet and opening of the Mackenzie valley
Principal Investigator: Froese, Duane G
Licensed Year(s): 2020 2019 2018
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4490. In this project, the research team aim to improve the chronology of the retreat of the Laurentide Ice Sheet from the eastern foot of the Mackenzie Mountains and the Mackenzie River valley that began around 14,000 years ago, and to gain better understanding of the dynamics of how the ice left the region and development...


Tlicho All-Season Road
Principal Investigator: Walmsley, Caroline
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4587. The objective is to conduct monitor to ensure that the project is overall compliant with the environmental permit and approval conditions and requirements. Water monitoring at water crossing locations will be required for any in-water construction and where there is potential for entrainment of sediments. This inc...


Radar Satellite Observations of Lake Ice Breakup and Freeze-up
Principal Investigator: Drouin, Hugo
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4588. This project aims to evaluate and develop the utility of Canada’s future RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM) (launch June 2019) for the monitoring of lake ice breakup and freeze-up. RCM-type radar images will be simulated using data from Canada’s current radar satellite – that is - RADARSAT-2. Validation data in the ...


ITH Metal Chemistry
Principal Investigator: Gammon, Paul R
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4544. The objectives of this research are: 1) To investigate the environmental chemistry of the borrow pits and immediate surrounding areas to determine what, if any, environmental risk do the elevated concentrations represent; 2) To investigate the environmental chemistry of an undisturbed area around the Inuvik to Tukto...


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...
