An Assessment of the Impacts of Climate Change on Freight Delivery Schedule Strategies on the Mackenzie RiverDownload
The Mackenzie River is a major freight transportation route serving many remote northern Canadian communities and mining sites. The river is only navigable during the summer and early fall months, when it is clear of ice. However, the water conditions of this river have changed significantly in...
Autecological studies of Luzula confusa: a plant's response to the high arctic environment on King Christian Island, N.W.T.Download
An examination as to what adaptations were advantageous in survival and growth of Luzula confusa at Cape Abunathy.
Mining in the Canadian north has increased since diamonds were discovered in the 1990s. The large physical disturbances and large amounts of waste from diamond mining, coupled with inherent challenges in northern environments due to the harsh climate, make land reclamation particularly...
Documentation and analysis of the clothing worn by non-native men in the Canadian arctic prior to 1920, with an emphasis on footwearDownload
Masters thesis. Written and visual documentary sources and surviving footwear artifacts were examined to establish (1) strengths and weaknesses inherent in the use of these types of documentary evidence and (2) clothing practices of British, American and Canadian men in the Canadian arctic from...
Doctoral thesis. Study of several aspects of the ecology of free-living soil nematodes on the Truelove Lowland high arctic terrestrial ecosystem on Devon Island.
Environmental decision-making processes north of 60: the Beaufort Sea EARP and Lancaster Sound studyDownload
Examines the federal government's policy toward environmental decision-making using the Beaufort Sea EARP and the Lancaster Sound Region study as case studies.
An evaluation program was designed to assess the nature of the greywater of an isolated northern community, Whale Cove, and its treatment in order to reduce the potential health hazard.
Comprehensive, in-situ study of naturally occurring creep in ice-rich permafrost soil on a steep slope on the Great Bear River. A detailed surficial geology mapping along the Great Bear River was carried out in order to determine the most suitable field site. Coincidentally, the slope is situated...
Investigating the Effect of Antibiotic Exposure on the Prevalence of Antibiotic-resistant H. pylori Infection and the Incidence of Anti-H. pylori Treatment Failure in Northern Canadian CommunitiesDownload
The frequent and improper use of antibiotics for the treatment of unrelated bacterial infections is believed to influence the development of antibiotic-resistant H. pylori infection. Antibiotic-resistant H. pylori infection is a major risk factor for the failure of anti-H. pylori treatment...
Masters thesis which documents field observations from the Nozzle and Rockslide Pass rock avalanches. Also evaluates, modifies and calibrates a two-parameter hydraulic model for the purpose of rock avalanche and velocity prediction.
