Sources and fate of microplastics in Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Bourdages, Madelaine
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5004. The first objective of this project is to quantify microplastic concentration and composition in water, sediment, zooplankton, and air around Great Slave Lake. The second objective of this project is to examine if microplastic concentrations are greater near communities than the open water of Great Slave Lake. The thi...


Permafrost slumping and land-water connections on the Peel Plateau
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4928. The objective of this research is to understand how permafrost slumping increases the mobilization of carbon, nutrients, and toxins (mercury) from land to water, and the effects of this transport on stream ecosystems and the global carbon cycle. Over the next several years, the research team plan to measure stream che...


Trajectories of landscape change due to thawing permafrost
Principal Investigator: Korosi, Jennifer B
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4727. The research team will use lake sediment cores to track the history of shoreline permafrost thaw slump activity over the last several thousand years, and associated lake ecological responses to thaw slumping, in order to provide a long-term context for present-day observations. The team will select three pairs of ...
