AirMeth 2018
Principal Investigator: Hartmann, Jörg
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this survey are to measure patterns of methane (CH4) concentrations over the Mackenzie Delta and to quantify the emissions of CH4 from this area. Together with the data of our previous campaigns we will be able to analyse the interannual variability of methane fluxes. Furthermore, the research team will investigate the possibility of linking in-situ data of tundra landscape ch...

Airborne SAR and passive microwave measurements over snow covered tundra for CoReH20 retrieval validation and land surface model testing
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The proposed European Space Agency Earth Explorer 7 CoReH20 satellite mission has the primary objective of retrieving snow water equivalent (SWE) over land at a high spatial resolution (200-500 metres) from X- and Ku-band Synthetic Aperture Radar measurements. This would make available high resolution, satellite derived SWE, for monitoring and modeling applications. To-date, airborne measurements ...

Evaluating the environmental impacts of permafrost mega-disturbances along the Dempster Highway, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this research project is to document the extent of ecological change in impacted stream basins draining the eastern slope of the Richardson Mountains and to determine the mechanisms of slump initiation and stabilization. This study will focus on the Stoney Creek catchment, which runs parallel to the Dempster Highway and empties into the Peel River at Fort McPherson, NT. The catchm...

Climate Change Impacts on Canadian Arctic Tundra Ecosystems – North Slave Métis Community Traditional Knowledge Study
Principal Investigator: Grieve, Sheryl
Licensed Year(s): 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: This project is part of a larger IPY study, Climate Change Impacts on Canadian Arctic Tundra Ecosystems (CiCAT), looking at the effect of climate change on arctic tundra ecosystems. For this project, Metis traditional knowledge on vegetation and terrain changes in the North Slave region will be collected. The goal of this study is to connect and meld scientific studies with knowledge from people ...

Comparative studies of pingos and pingo clusters in the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula, NWT and Athabasca Valles, Mars
Principal Investigator: Soare, Richard J
Licensed Year(s): 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of this research is to compare the formation processes of pingo-like mounds near the equator in Mars vs. the development of pingos in the Tuktoyaktuk Coastlands, and evaluate whether the two mounds types could be similar. Mars is a high-priority target for the Canadian and international planetary science communities. The main driver for this is the possibility of life on the Red P...

Northern Phase 1 Environmental Assessment Program - Remote Sensing Pilot Project
Principal Investigator: Neufeld, Lori
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: WorleyParsons, on behalf of Imperial Oil, is planning to conduct a remote sensing pilot project through use of a fixed-wing aircraft to capture environmental information on approximately 100 former drilling sites, as well as some former staging areas, campsites, artificial islands in the Beaufort Sea and other facilities located in the Northwest Territories. The purpose of the project is to determ...

2008 Baseline studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Metals Project (Terrain component)
Principal Investigator: Sibbald, Carey
Licensed Year(s): 2009 2008
Summary: This licence is issued for the scientific research application #912. The objective of this research is to provide baseline information on the terrain in and around the Thor Lake area. Filed observations will allow the researchers to produce a terrain map of the Thor lake area. To do this, the land must be categorized based on landforms, mineral deposits, drainage, slopes and geohazards (fo...

Geological Reconnaissance and proposed Field Trip across the northern Richardson Mountains and Mackenzie Delta area
Principal Investigator: Lane, Larry S
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: This study will be composed of an assessment field trip as well as a larger field study used to teach the regional geology to geologists who work for companies that currently hold petroleum leases in the Delta area. The trip in July will serve as a scoping trip to prepare for the field trip by assessing specific sites for suitability as field trip stops. Every site will be evaluated for its scien...

IPY-SCARF: International Polar Year - Study of Canadian Arctic River-Delta Fluxes
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: The aims of the various components of this project are to develop a hydraulic model for the Mackenzie Delta by observation of ice jams for calibration of the model, assessing ice cover and breakup patterns, linking an ice-ocean-atmosphere model of storm surges to the hydraulic model, measuring water stored in off-channel areas, improving information on lake-flooding for off-channel areas, quantify...

Central Mackenze Geological Field Program 2007
Principal Investigator: Millman, Peter M
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of the program is to observe surface geological features and document these observations. From a geological perspective the objective of the project is to complete a reconnaissance of the Cambrian and Proterozoic sections in 4 areas. Field operations will take approximately 6 days to complete. The project team will mobilize by helicopter daily from Norman Wells for the western...
