Objective(s): The field studies are required to obtain specific environmental information for the study area and will be used in the preparation of an environmental impact assessment in support of a land use permit application for a winter 2D seismic program spanning the Gwich'in and Sahtu Settlement Areas. Emphasis will be on ensuring that finalized project components (winter access, winter seismic lines) have minimal impact on the environment. A review of existing literature and other available information will first be conducted to identify knowledge gaps. This will help to focus the field studies.
