Cumulative Impact Monitoring Program (CIMP): Community based environmental monitoring in the Northwest Territories

In this project, we will combine remote sensing data with field observations to document the extent and cause of changes occurring between 1985 and 2012. Examples of these changes that will be examined include: drained lakes, thaw slumps, tundra fires, tall shrub expansion, ice wedge degradation, mud sumps, seismic trails, roads, gravel pads, airstrips, etc.). In the long-term (2014-2015) our goal is to use this data to develop predictive models that can be used to explore how ongoing changes will impact the ecosystems of the northern Mackenzie.
