Classification, mapping, monitoring, quantification, and inventory of key ecosystem properties of terrestrial ecosystems in the NWT mainland, adjacent to Victoria Island
Principal Investigator: McLennan, Donald S
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1. investigate, characterize and sample the vascular plant, moss, lichen, fungal and algal flora and biodiversity; 2. describe, sample and characterize various terrestrial ecosystems of Northwest Territories; 3. identify in the landscape as many as possible of the characterized terrestrial ecosystems, and document their occurrence by geo-referenced digital...


Permafrost carbon fluxes
Principal Investigator: Pumpanen, Jukka S
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The field work in Trail Valley Creek and Inuvik aims to study: 1) how catchment characteristics, such as vegetation and soil properties, control the amount and quality of aquatic dissolved organic matter (DOM) and its microbial degradability, and 2) how these factors further regulate greenhouse gas fluxes (carbon dioxide CO2, methane CH4, nitrous oxide N2O) from Arctic lakes. At the Dempster hi...


Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2013 2011 2010
Summary: The objectives of the Site Remediation Program (scheduled to be completed in 2019 and 2020) are: 1) to remove and dispose of exposed historic solid waste (including barrels, batteries, debris, wood and other waste); and 2) to finalize construction of a contaminated soil and waste containment structure to contain impacted soil excavated from areas at the site. The 2019 Site activities may includ...


Reconstructing history of hummocky soil formation in drunken forest
Principal Investigator: Fujii, Kazumichi
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: “Drunken forest” is developed on earth hummocks on shallow permafrost layer near Inuvik, Canada. Black spruce forests are typically grown on the shoulder of mounds and tree rings record the history of soil movement. By reading tree rings, The Principal Investigator (PI) is planning to reconstruct history of hummocky soil formation. The PI will collect tree core samples by making a hole in wood...


Winter Flow Regime and Icing Dynamics of Tundra Streams near the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway
Principal Investigator: Ensom, Timothy P
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: 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 Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway through ground-based and aerial reconnaissance of stream crossings; 2)Identify relations between physical watershed characteristics and icing dynamics through field observations and analyses of watercourse and ca...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Liu, William X
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies is to obtain information on the environment once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects. The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, geochemistry, hydrology, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources, dustfall, vegetation and soil information. The studies are designed to monitor the area aro...


Forest Ecotone Experiment
Principal Investigator: Eitel, Jan
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The overarching objective of the study is to integrate light detection and ranging (LiDAR), passive spectral, and tree ecophysiological data to link biophysical structure to ecological function in the Forest Tundra Ecotone. In so doing, the research team will be able to remotely assess the vulnerability and resilience of the forest tundra ecotone (FTE) to environmental change. The field work wi...


City of Yellowknife Gold Project
Principal Investigator: Campbell, Joseph W
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: Follow-up on exploration activity associated with Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board land use permit MV2014C0005 on Terrax Minerals Inc. City of Yellowknife Gold Project. Work would include initial environmental baseline work, and expansion of research programs to establish sufficient study for possible future Environmental Impact Assessment of potential mine development if exploration activiti...


Short and long term effects of forest fires on the stability of carbon pools in the arctic permafrost and subarctic forests (ARCTICFIRE)
Principal Investigator: Koster, Kajar
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2015
Summary: The aim of this project is to study the short term and long term effects of different fire intensities on the decomposition of soil organic matter (SOM) in northern boreal forests under changing fire regimes. The objectives are to: 1) explore the short and long term effects of forest fires with different intensity on above- and belowground biomasses; 2) explore changes in albedo, snow depths an...


Hydrological Remote Sensing
Principal Investigator: Berg, Aaron A
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: Our research has three main objectives: 1. to monitor the spatial variability of soil moisture at approximately a 10km resolution in the region of Trail Valley Creek (TVC); 2. to test the soil moisture retrieval algorithms in high organic soils through both satellite based measurements; and, 3. to measure and model the mass wasting at retrogressive thaw slumps as a function of debris thickness...
