2004 Summer Reconnaissance Program in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Graburn, Larry
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: The objective of this program is to carry out aerial reconnaissance and preliminary site investigations, topographical aerial mapping, and surface reconnaissance in the general vicinity of the proposed route for the Mackenzie Gas Project. Information fro...

Surficial Geology Mapping Fort Norman (96C), Blackwater Lake (96B), Mahoney Lake (96F)
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licensed Year(s): 2003
Summary: This project aims to obtain a better understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. It will also identify baseline levels for natural and anthropogenic contaminants,...

Active layer monitoring network in the Mackenzie Valley
Principal Investigator: Nixon, Mark
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: This season, a party of two will survey tubes between North Richards Island and Tsiigehtchic during April and from Fort Simpson to the Arctic Coast in July and August. Travel will be by road, small boat on the river and helicopter from Norman Wells and Tutoyaktuk. Access to the sites is always on foot. This year is the seventh annual survey of a network of thaw depth measuring devices (thaw tub...

Periglacial Processes: Investigation of Slope Processes
Principal Investigator: Egginton, Paul A.
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1990
Summary: This year's work continues the measurement of creep (movement) of ice-rich slopes in permafrost. Landslide distribution in the lower Mackenzie Delta (Norman Wells area) is also being mapped....

Emplacement of Debris Flows on Continental Slopes, Baffin Bay and Labrador Sea
Principal Investigator: Hiscott, Richard
Licensed Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researchers will: map the geometry of debris-flow (mudflow) deposits; document bottom slopes and flow paths; relate debris-flow activity to Pleistocene history of the area and sea-bed cores and use this data to quantify the subaqueous (below water) debris-flow process....

Natural Frozen Soil Creep, Rea Point, Eastern Melville Island
Principal Investigator: Bennett, Lorne P.
Licensed Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researcher and his assistant will follow up research conducted at the same site between 1985-87. They will compare known rates of permafrost creep with those measured following manipulation of certain field variables (i.e. alteration of the snow cover to change the natural ground thermal regime)....
