Principal Investigator:Compton, Mary E Licenced Year(s):
This research aims to use ethnographic methods (participant observation, semi-structured interviews, and focus groups) to examine archaeological engagement in the community of Sachs Harbour on Banks Island, NWT. In particular, this research will explore whether digital representations and physical replicas could make archaeological objects held in distant repositories more accessible to people in ...
Principal Investigator:Cooper, Harold K Licenced Year(s):
The proposed research will examine variation in the archaeological record of the spatial and temporal context of copper from the Coronation Gulf (CG) region in the Canadian Arctic and Subarctic to answer questions about innovation in metallurgical technology among northern hunter-gatherers.
Specific research questions to be addressed through spatial and contextual analysis include: (1) Does co...
Principal Investigator:Kelvin, Laura E Licenced Year(s):
The primary objectives of this research are to 1) document traditional knowledge of Banks Island that could contribute to our understanding of life on the island in the past; 2) document differences in understandings of the past and heritage management values among Sachs Harbour residents; 3) identify similarities and differences between Inuvialuit and archaeological values, priorities and underst...

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 behavior of caribou;
•the relative a...
Principal Investigator:Nyman, Jeff Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions at nine sites on Gordon Lake. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater, and the identification of any hazardous or non-hazardous materials. In addition, samples of biota (including vegetation, fish, benthic invertebrates) m...
Principal Investigator:Lennie-Misgeld, Janpeter Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of the study are as follows:
- Perform limited geotechnical analysis to confirm assumptions on foundation type and location and routing;
- Identify any archeological or cultural resources that may be impacted by the transmission line;
- Conduct environmental field work e.g. wildlife sightings and documentation, plant samples, caribou migration trails; and
- Use the information...
Principal Investigator:Vavrek, Matthew J Licenced Year(s):
This project is a continuation of the collaborative research program on ancient biodiversity in the Canadian Arctic. Recently, the group completed work supported by Polar Continental Shelf Project in the Brackett Basin in the westcentral Northwest Territories and the Bonnet Plume Basin in northeastern the Yukon Territory, during which the research team recovered both new vertebrate (dinosaur) foss...
Principal Investigator:Krizan, Julia Licenced Year(s):
A Fish Habitat Assessment and an Archaeological Assessment are required for the proposed Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway. A Fish Habitat Assessment and an Archaeological Impact Assessment Report will be developed with data obtained from the proposed highway corridor during fall 2011.
IMG-Golder Corp. is proposing to carry out a fish habitat and archaeological assessment program along the highway ...
Principal Investigator:Patterson, R. Tim Licenced Year(s):2012
Through analysis of sediment/water interface samples, freeze cores, and dendrochronology, the researchers intend to:
i) develop a comprehensive sub-decadal to centennial-scale late Holocene climatic history along a 2° latitudinal gradient in the central NT, variously based on microfossils (pollen, diatoms, thecamoebians, chironomids), sedimentologic, cyclostratigraphic, stable isotopic, ...
Principal Investigator:Hodgetts, Lisa M Licenced Year(s):
The primary objective of this traditional knowledge project is to document Inuvialuit elders’ traditional knowledge of land use and occupancy on Banks Island, with a particular focus on the area in and around Aulavik National Park, where the study area for the archaeological component of the research is located. Elders will be asked to map their knowledge of animal habitat, habitation sites, spir...
