NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) Airborne Flights 2023
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licensed Year(s): 2023
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No. 5601. From 2017 – 2022, ABoVE airborne teams collected data across a wide variety of ecosystems in both the US and Canada. Depending on available funds, the team may re-fly one of the sensors to collect hyperspectral data at several locations in 2023. For 2023, the NASA Dynamic Aviation King Air B-200 aircraft with a h...


The export of terrigenous dissolved organic carbon from boreal terrestrial ecosystems to the Arctic Ocean and its vulnerability to environmental change
Principal Investigator: Fichot, Cedric
Licensed Year(s): 2023 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No. 5611. The primary objective of this funded project is to develop a sophisticated model that can simulate the mobilization, transport, transformations, and export of terrigenous dissolved organic carbon (tDOC) from the Mackenzie River watershed to the Arctic Ocean. The model will be used to simulate the transfer of tDOC dur...

Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5467. Objectives: To improve sustainability of Dolly Varden fisheries from the perspective of the Gwich’in and Inuvialuit communities that rely on them. Within that, specific Project Objectives include: 1) Document Indigenous Knowledge of population trends, environmental change, and cumulative impacts for Dolly Varden an...


Įłaà negetsà-lıa et’ıì hoghàgetǫǫ xèhoòwı: Celebrating families in the Tłı̨chǫ region
Principal Investigator: Komarnisky, Sara V
Licensed Year(s): 2023
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5215. This is a two year project that will fund community meetings, family story gathering, and creative and academic work in two communities in the Tli?cho region, Wekweètì and Gamètì. This initial work will contribute to the development of a bigger project involving the entire Tli?cho region and all four communities (Behc...


Soundscape ecology to assess environmental controls on wildlife
Principal Investigator: Boelman, Natalie
Licensed Year(s): 2023 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5555. Our objective is to install 3 Automated Recording Units (ARUs) that will collect daily audio recordings that will allow us to understand how variation in environmental conditions affect habitat use by birds. To begin, we will temporarily attach 3 ARUs onto 3 trees (using bungee cord or ratchet straps). All birds th...


Rapid Creek Formation
Principal Investigator: Gadd, Michael
Licensed Year(s): 2023
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5577. The objective of this project is to better understand the physical, chemical, and biological controls of the Rapid Creek Formation by collecting and analyzing samples (through fieldwork) and developing a new sequence stratigraphic framework for the purpose of uncovering its potential and enabling the identification of...


Capitalizing on long-term experimental manipulations to understand and predict arctic terrestrial ecosystem responses to climate warming
Principal Investigator: Grogan, Paul
Licensed Year(s): 2023 2022 2021 2019
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine the biogeochemical and ecological significance of our discovery that mesic tundra plant growth can be co-limited by nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P); 2) to predict the likely impacts of not just climate change, but also declining caribou and other mammalian herbivory, on tundra deciduous and evergreen shrub abundances; and, 3) to evaluate...


Using Inuvialuit and Gwich'in observations to monitor environmental change in the Beaufort Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4753. The core objective of this research is to work with Inuvialuit and Gwich’in experts to document and share local observations of environmental conditions. Over time this will build a record of observations, against which future changes can be compared. To document local observations this research will employ methods in...


Dehcho Indigenous Community Based Climate Change Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Low, Mike
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4812. The objective of this project is to increase collection of climate change indicators, while also training Dehcho Guardians to collect the same data independently in the future. This information in addition to the collection of traditional knowledge will show changes to the environment and the data can be used to prote...
