SWEEP - The Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program
Principal Investigator: Bharadwaj, Lalita A
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: In collaboration with the Slave River and Delta Partnership (SRDP) and local communities, the research team will develop a Community Based Monitoring (CBM) program titled the Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program (SWEEP), to empower communities to collect, interpret and use a system of environmental indicators to address these priorities. The focus will be on indicators of cumulative effec...


The cumulative impacts of rapid environmental change in the northwestern NWT: Investigating the impacts of mega-slump disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the lower Peel watershed, NW
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a multidisciplinary project involving communities, governments and academic researchers. The goals are to: 1) inventory and track broad scale changes in landscape disturbances; 2) determine the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on the physical and chemical characteristics and ecology of streams and rivers; 3) determine disturbance thresholds relevant to the health of stream...


Investigating the cumulative effects of environmental change and human activity in the Tathlina watershed
Principal Investigator: Laidlaw, Shawn
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The purpose of this project is to: 1) coordinate monitoring and research efforts in the watershed between the community, government, and universities; 2) understand current aquatic health of the watershed using water quality, macroinvertebrates, aquatic furbearers and fish as indicators of ecosystem health; 3) understand historical environmental change and contaminant loading in the watershe...


Surveys of Rare and Exotic Plants in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Oldham, Micheal
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Indigenous rare plants exist in the NWT, including in parts of the Mackenzie Mountains and the Beaufort Sea coast (especially in areas that were not glaciated). Alien species may be spreading along roads. There are 94 species of alien plants, transported to the territories by human activity. Surveys pf alien and rare plants will be conducted along roads in the North, South Slave and DehCho reg...


Mapping and Modeling Carbon Flux in Northern Canada Related to Land Use Change
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The research team is working to become familiar with the impact of human disturbances on vegetation in northern Canada for their carbon studies. The objective of this study is to collect vegetation and biophysical data for use as verification of ground cover type and disturbance for use in satellite imagery classification and biomass and soil sampling for carbon modeling along the Ingraham Trail....


Surficial Geology of Mackenzie Corridor
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This project aims to obtain a better understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. It will also identify baseline levels for natural and anthropogenic contaminants,...


Surficial Geology Mapping Fort Norman (96C), Blackwater Lake (96B), Mahoney Lake (96F)
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: This project aims to obtain a better understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. It will also identify baseline levels for natural and anthropogenic contaminants,...


Forestry Research Projects in the Gwich'in Settlement Area: Seismic Line Revegetation in the Gwich'in Settlement Area (GSA)
Principal Investigator: Van Gerwen-Toyne, Melanie
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Baseline data on the rate of tree growth (productivity) and time required for trees to re-establish (regeneration) following fires and anthropogenic disturbances are required to determine forest sustainability and understand how habitat changes over time...


Integrated Management Planning in the Husky Lakes Area of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region.
Principal Investigator: Hoyt, Andrea J.
Licenced Year(s): 2001 2000
Summary: The research team will be based out of Tuktoyaktuk, and travel to Tuktoyaktuk from Inuvik will be by scheduled flight. No field camps will be used, and all transport in the field will be on foot or by boat. The study will be done through individual and group interviews, using maps and semi-directed interviews. Interviews will be taped, to facilitate data collection. Participation in the study i...


Water Balance Studies in the Coppermine River Basin: The Chain of Lakes Effect in Space and Time.
Principal Investigator: Maric, Robert
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be based out of Yellowknife. Travel to the Ekati Mine site will be by helicopter; travel on site will be on foot. The research team will be in the field for approximately seven days. Characterization of the hydrologic balance of the system under investigation will be completed by the collection of several hundred water samples (each with an approximate volume of 30 ml) at d...
