Principal Investigator:Chisholm, Veronica Licenced Year(s):
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, geochemistry, hydrology, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources, dustfall, vegetation and soil information. The studies are...

The main objectives of the field work for 2016 to 2020 are: 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 of ...

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 ...

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, ...

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...

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...

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...

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...
