Recovery of boreal caribou habitat after forest fires
Principal Investigator: d'Entremont, Marc
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: In 2015-2016, the Deninu Kue First Nation (DKFN) and LGL (Lewis, Gunn, Livingston) Limited completed a traditional use study on boreal caribou habitat and habitat use that incorporated traditional knowledge and scientific information in the identification of foraging habitat for boreal caribou in the South Slave region of the Northwest Territories (NWT). One outcome of the study was the DKFN elder...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in lake trout and burbot from Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2016
Summary: This study is continuing to investigate whether contaminant levels are changing in fish in Great Slave Lake which the team have been studying since the early 1990s. The research team will collect lake trout from the Hay River and Lutsel K’e areas. The team will also plan to collect burbot from the Lutsel K’e and Fort Resolution areas of Great Slave Lake, and northern pike from the Fort Resolution ...


Obtaining a strength profile of an exemplary lower crustal fault segment — the Great Slave Lake shear zone, Northwest Territories Canada.
Principal Investigator: Dyck, Brendan
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The two main objectives for this project are to a) determine the strength of the lower crust, and b) investigate how stress varies across a typical lower crustal shear zone. These objectives will be achieved by examining a transect through an ancient lower-crustal shear zone. Two weeks of fieldwork will be carried out at the Great Slave Lake Shear Zone to acquire the appropriate samples to exp...


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...


Food systems and community well-being in Kakisa, NT
Principal Investigator: Spring, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1. foster training and knowledge sharing to ensure that traditional foods continue to provide an important component of affordable, sustainable healthy food system for Ka'a'gee Tu First Nation; 2. conduct a detailed needs assessment for a food security action plan; 3. increase knowledge and capacity to grow and produce food products while explori...


Bryophytes of southwest Northwest Territories waterfall areas
Principal Investigator: Doubt, Jennifer
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objective is to increase knowledge of bryophytes (e.g., mosses, liverworts) and (incidentally, where possible) lichens in the Northwest Territories. Waterfall areas can offer a wide diversity of microhabitats (featuring a large variety of substrates, moisture and light levels, and exposures) within a relatively small area. Bryophyte species and communities are often associated with specific...


Impacts of 10 years of climate warming on forests and peatlands in the Dehcho
Principal Investigator: Errington, Ruth
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: After 10 years of warming climate conditions, the Canadian Fire Service is leading a field project to re-measure a series of permanent monitoring plots to identify any changes to the forest stand structure, tree growth rates, plant community composition, tree, shrub, herb, and lichen biomass. These changes will be associated with climate trends and environmental factors such as soil type, presence...


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 ...


Kennady North Diamond Project
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to document existing environmental conditions in the aquatic environment. The hydrology program includes the measurement of selected lake inflow and outflow and stream profile through field surveys, and installation of data loggers to continually monitor lake levels through the open-water season. Hydrology studies will be initiated during the spring freshet. Equ...


Demonstration of an Agro-Ecological PoultryPonics Dome in Hay River, NWT
Principal Investigator: Wallington, Kevin D
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The Agro-Ecological PoultryPonics Demonstration will be a showcase the benefits of the integration of vertical hydroponics and poultry production in a dome shaped structure which will significantly reduce the inputs of nutrients and energy while maintaining high levels of production. It will be able to do so with the use of a ‘BIOReactor’ that will help to safely convert manure from egg production...
