Watershed-scale geomorphic response to climate change in the Aklavik Range, NWT
Principal Investigator: Strauss, Justin Vincent
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5153. For this latest phase of research, the research team propose to integrate field observations, geochemical techniques, and historical remote sensing analysis to quantify the rates and processes by which sediment is generated from bedrock and transported downslope via hillslope and river processes under a changing clima...


The Great Bear Lake ice thickness and water quality observations under current and future climates (2022-2025)
Principal Investigator: Kheyrollah Pour, Homa
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5184. This project aims to reconstruct trends in ice phenology using remotely-sensed and ground-based observations and collective memories of land-based and in-lake changes by communities living along the shoreline of Great Bear Lake (GBL) to characterize the inter-annual variability of ice formation in the lake and determi...


Mapping, monitoring and modelling permafrost change in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steve V
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5161. The primary objectives of this research are: 1) to develop and test new methods of characterizing permafrost and monitoring permafrost landscape change with a focus on the Beaufort Delta, central Mackenzie Valley and North Slave regions; 2) mapping sensitive permafrost terrain across NWT by integrating expert assessme...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Restoration – Exploring the Potential for Using Indigenous Plant Species to Revegetate Coastline Affected by Permafrost Thaw Slumping
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licensed Year(s): 2021 2021 2020 2019 2018
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5057. The objectives include: 1) Creating a series of maps showing the thaw slump activity along the Beaufort Sea Coast near Tuktoyaktuk; 2) Developing detailed water, vegetation, and ground temperature maps of the study sites using drones; 3) Examining the effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of landscape-level r...


Trails of the Mountain Caribou: Renewing Indigenous Relationships in Conservation
Principal Investigator: Andrew, Leon
Licensed Year(s): 2021 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5044. The anticipated outcome of the plan and associated research will be a body of evidence supporting the biocultural and socioeconomic significance of the Ni´o Ne? P’e?ne?´ area, a framework for caribou conservation and habitat protection. Furthermore, the program will support establishment of Indigenous-led Guardian and...


Drivers and constraints of ecological change in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licensed Year(s): 2021 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4749. The objectives of this research are: 1) to use remote sensing (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, Airphotos, UAVs, etc.) to document regional landscape change (tundra fire, infrastructure, saline flooding, slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, lake drainage/expansion, etc.); and, 2) to use field sampling and monitoring to d...


Hydrothermal Regime of Riparian Terrain in Continuous Permafrost, Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Ensom, Timothy P
Licensed Year(s): 2021 2020 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4938. The specific objectives of the project are as follows: 1) Determine the spatial extent, distribution, and timing of winter icing events in streams along the ITH through ground-based and aerial reconnaissance of stream crossings; 2) Identify relations between physical watershed characteristics and icing dynamics thro...


Investigating the seasonality of subarctic lakes in a changing climate using satellite & field data
Principal Investigator: Kheyrollah Pour, Homa
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4831. This proposed research is directed at understanding the impact of current/future climate warming on subarctic lake ecosystems. The aim is to explore the relationship of seasonal lake ice growth/ablation and water quality across a wide range of lake characteristics (size, volume, productivity, catchment characteristics...


Permafrost in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steve V
Licensed Year(s): 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4663. 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) to assess the physical...


Radar Satellite Observations of Lake Ice Breakup and Freeze-up
Principal Investigator: Drouin, Hugo
Licensed Year(s): 2020 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4648. 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 ...
