NASA ABoVE Airborne Campaign
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: Preliminary flight lines have been planned with the goal of collecting data across a wide variety of ecosystems in both the US and Canada, with flights occurring from May – October 2017. The ultimate timing and flight paths would be dictated by weather and operational limitations at the time of flight, though deviations are expected to be minimal. A variety of aircraft and sensor suites will b...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué 2014 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Kramers, Patrick
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies is to continue to describe the existing environment, and obtain information once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects. The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, hydrology, geochemistry, vegetation, soil, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources data and wildlife occurrence. These study ...


EKATI Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Hayward, April
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2017 to 2021 will be:1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and 2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 2.5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week o...


De Beers Canada Snap Lake Mine Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Hood, Alexandra E
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: To meet regulatory requirements from the Snap Lake Environmental Assessment and under the mine's Water License, Land Use permit and Environmental Agreement. The objectives of this research project are: 1) to obtain and determine annual variability of the following information in the study area: •the relative abundance, distribution, group composition and behaviour of caribou; •the relative ...


EKATI Aquatic Monitoring Program, 2009-2013
Principal Investigator: Robb, Tonia L
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2009 to 2013 will be to determine if the EKATI mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week of spring freshet, ...


Melville Island South Ice Cap Mass Balance & Snow Pollution
Principal Investigator: Burgess, David O
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: By measuring the changing volume of the ice cap and maintaining an Automatic weather station the research team is able to tell how much the climate is changing. The snow sampling tells how clean the snow and air above it is and whether or not it is changing. While at the Melville ice cap, the team lives in a small hut by the side of the ice cap constructed last year. There is an automatic weath...


Sunphotometer measurements at Yellowknife
Principal Investigator: O'Neill, Norm T
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this research project is to measure the aerosol optical depth and sky radiance at Yellowknife using an automated, sun-tracking, CIMEL sunphotometer. In this project, measurements of instruments in the network (called AEROCAN which is the Canadian sub-network of the world-wide NASA-led network called AERONET) are performed using a CIMEL sunphotometer / sky radiometer. This instr...


Environmental Surveys of the Fortune Minerals NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Goad, Robin E
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The scope of environmental studies to be undertaken includes fish and fish habitat, water quality, air quality, and vegetation surveys. Equipment for habitat surveys will be limited to standard field measuring and surveying equipment, such as GPS units, and helicopters. An automated meteorological station has been set up to collect weather data. A summer and fall fish and fish habitat survey w...


Dust Distribution and Monitoring using Lichens as Bioindicators
Principal Investigator: Wytrychowski, Scott I
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2010 2005
Summary: Air quality is an issue at mine sites, and diamond mining can contribute large quantities of dust to the air. This dust may contain elevated levels of heavy metals. Vehicle and generator exhausts also contribute to air pollution and greenhouse gases. To acheive the goal of sustainable development, Diavik policy focuses on the need to identify potential risks and set targets for pollution preventio...


Gahcho Kue' Biophysical Baseline Studies
Principal Investigator: Bekhuys, Tim
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: De Beers Canada has conducted a number of baseline studies in the Gahcho Kue' area, and is continuing these studies in 2005. AMEC Earth and Environmental will be doing the baseline studies on behalf of De Beers. The studies will consist of wildlife, fi...
