Indigenous Knowledge in Protected Areas Management: Adaptation, Sustainability and Opportunities in the Circumpolar North.
Principal Investigator: Siivola, Delia C
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: Investigating this research problem will help develop more ethical practice in cooperative management by better pointing out the role of Indigenous knowledge in arrangements today, and promote better use of Indigenous knowledge for decision-making in the future. In addition to filling identified research gaps, the research questions will draw from, and align with, the Arctic Council self-identifie...


Deglaciation of the NW Laurentide Ice Sheet and opening of the Mackenzie valley
Principal Investigator: Froese, Duane G
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: In this project, the research team aim to improve the chronology of the retreat of the Laurentide Ice Sheet from the eastern foot of the Mackenzie Mountains and the Mackenzie River valley that began around 14,000 years ago, and to gain better understanding of the dynamics of how the ice left the region and development of large lakes that occupied the valleys. The research team will attempt to quan...


Stratigraphic Studies, Mackenzie Mountains
Principal Investigator: Fischer, Beth J
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The goal is to examine sedimentary rocks in the area of interest in order to develop an understanding of the geological processes that formed the area. The research team hope to acquire a better understanding of the events hundreds of millions of years ago that laid down the sediments, lithified them, uplifted and deformed them. Of particular interest are the processes of sedimentation across the ...


NASA ABoVE Airborne Campaign 2018 Addendum
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The extended Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) Study Area includes most of northwestern North America west of Hudson Bay and north and east of the coastal mountain ranges. The core study area includes 4 jurisdictions: Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. It encompasses the variability in the key types of ecosystems that are both unique to arctic and boreal regions in Nor...


Shale Basin Evolution 2
Principal Investigator: Fiess, Kathryn M
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: This year’s objective is to complete the work at the selected locations by obtaining a full suite of rock samples for analysis, photograph each location, and measure natural radiation. At each site, the rock exposure will be photographed in detail. Natural radiation will be measured every half meter using a sensor without major disturbance of the rock face. At each location, rock samples weigh...


Northern Water Futures Baseline Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Baltzer, Jennifer L
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The overall objective is to understand existing and potential impacts of climate change and resource development in the Sahtú region on four key aspects: 1) the landscape, 2) vegetation, 3) water resources and 4) aquatic ecosystems. Specifically, the research team seek to understand: a) terrain instability due to permafrost thaw, especially around communities and culturally-important areas; b) veg...


Identifying sources of mercury in Arctic rivers
Principal Investigator: Zdanowicz, Christian M
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The goal of this project is to identify and quantify (measure) the different possible sources of toxic mercury that is transported in rivers of the Mackenzie River basin, all the way down to the Beaufort Sea. In particular, the research team want to establish how much mercury comes from "modern" sources (like distant air pollution, runoff from rain/snow, wash-out from surface soils, etc.) and how ...


Community-Based Water Quality Monitoring in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Somers, Gila L
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: Water quality monitoring equipment has been deployed at over 42 sites across the NWT to address community concerns. Community members were trained to use the following equipment: •YSI sondes: sit in the water and measure basic water quality parameters every 2 hours for up to 3 months. Analysis undertaken at ENR. •Grab water samples: measure basic parameters, nutrients, physicals, major ions,...


APPLE Schools Evaluation
Principal Investigator: Veugelers, Paulus
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: In September 2018, APPLE Schools is expanding to two schools in the NWT. The research team will conduct a baseline evaluation in May 2018 that will provide information about students attending these expansion schools, parents and school principals. Data obtained will be used by the schools and assigned School Health Facilitator (SHF) to help inform the development of school specific action plans. ...


Sahtú Benígodi: Traditional Knowledge of Great Bear Lake and its Watershed
Principal Investigator: Spring, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The purpose of this project is to build a comprehensive database of Traditional Knowledge of the Great Bear Lake and its watershed to form an environmental baseline for the cumulative impacts of climate change and development. By compiling the rich history and stories from existing literature, studies and other initiatives from the community, the research team will be able to build a comprehensive...
