Investigating the seasonality of subarctic lakes in a changing climate using satellite & field data
Principal Investigator: Kheyrollah Pour, Homa
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5335. 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...


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): 2022 2020 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5205. 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...


Drivers and constraints of ecological change in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5277. The objectives of this research are: 1) 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) Use field sampling and monitoring to determi...


Remote Sensing and Geophysics of Tundra Landscapes
Principal Investigator: Ullmann, Tobias
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5193. The research team will investigate the possibility of linking field-measured characteristics of tundra landscapes (e.g. active layer thickness, soil moisture, plant distribution and ecosystem composition, etc.) with remotely-sensed data. The overall objective of the project is to identify the connection that exist bet...


Changing Carbon Sinks in Sub-Arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Schiff, Sherry L
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5150. The objective is to improve the quantitative understanding of carbon dynamics in Canadian subarctic freshwaters, with a focus on identifying the processes governing the balance between carbon sinks and carbon sources to the atmosphere. The research team will pair field-based observations with laboratory experiments...


Trails of the Mountain Caribou: Renewing Indigenous Relationships in Conservation
Principal Investigator: Andrew, Leon
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5157. 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...


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...
