Snow compaction and permafrost monitoring
Principal Investigator: Wilson, Alice
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5084. The primary objective of this research is to determine the influence of snow manipulation on permafrost temperatures in different environments along the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway (ITH). A secondary objective is to better understand the relationship between snow cover and ground surface temperatures in both natural...


MOSES Rapid Permafrost Thaw
Principal Investigator: Boike, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2021 2020 2019 2018
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5023. 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...


Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway Metal Chemistry
Principal Investigator: Gammon, Paul R
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5068. The overall objective of the research is to eventually determine the environmental chemistry of the elevated metal concentrations, which will in turn determine the environmental risk that these measured concentrations pose (i.e. will answer, at least in part, the questions: do these sites require remediation, and in w...


Beaufort Shelf Ecosystem Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Williams, Bill
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5042. The objective is continued annual collection of relevant data on aspects of the Beaufort shelf marine ecosystem. The activity in the Beaufort region is a brief mission at sea in the autumn of each year to recover and replace the observing system that acquires these data. The activities at home-base are mobilization fo...


Dempster Hwy Km 40.2 fish and fish habitat assessment
Principal Investigator: Chiperzak, Doug
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5069. The goal is to conduct a fish and fish habitat assessment at watercourse at Km 40.2 on Dempster Highway. At the site the fish and fish habitat survey will be conducted at six stream transects established 100 m upstream, 50 m upstream, centerline, 100 m downstream, 200 m downstream, and 300 downstream. Where poss...


Fish Habitat and Hydrotechnical Assessments along the Proposed Mackenzie Valley Highway
Principal Investigator: Chiperzak, Doug
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5060. The goal is to collect baseline fish, fish habitat and hydrotechnical data for selected watercourses along the proposed Mackenzie Valley Highway to support engineering design and the regulatory process. Fish habitat will be assessed along 100 m reaches upstream and downstream of each potential watercourse crossing....


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...


Nechalacho Project
Principal Investigator: Drygeese, Cody RJ
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4994. The goal of this project is to document existing environmental conditions surrounding the Project area. Studies may include the following. Hydrology studies include the measurement of selected lake inflow and outflow and stream profile through field surveys, and installation of data loggers to continually monitor l...


Beaufort Sea Coastal and Nearshore Geoscience Research
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4991. The primary objectives are to provide the means to improve the knowledge of physical conditions in the Arctic coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations and local residents understand mitigate and reduce the impacts of climate driven changes work taking place in 2021 is critical to better our unde...
