Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Levesque, Keith R
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. The knowledge generated from this multi- year program is integrated into regional impact studie...


Thetis Bay Bathymetric Survey and Benthic Sampling
Principal Investigator: Wolf, Calvin
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to document the physical condition of the seabed lease following the removal of the Tarsiut Caissons. The project also includes sampling benthic populations in the disturbed and undisturbed areas of the lease. This information can be used as a benchmark for possible future study of the effects of natural processes in restoring the footprint of the caissons. A bathy...


City of Yellowknife Gold Project
Principal Investigator: Campbell, Joseph W
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: Follow-up on exploration activity associated with MVLWB land use permit MV2014C0005 on Terrax Minerals Inc. City of Yellowknife Gold Project. Work would include initial environmental baseline work, and expansion of research programs to establish sufficient study for possible future Environmental Impact Assessment of potential mine development if exploration activities are successful. Work will ...


Addendum to ArcticNet licence # 15213
Principal Investigator: Levesque, Keith R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The ArcticNet marine-based research program is carried out from the Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen. The multi-year sampling program is developed around 3 main research components: 1) a meteorology, ocean & sea ice component; 2) a marine resources and environment component; and 3) a geology/bathymetry component. 1) Meteorology, ocean & sea ice component The general objective of thi...


Bathymetry, Aquatics and Fisheries Data Collection for the Potential North Diversion of Baker Creek, Giant Mine Remediation Project
Principal Investigator: Sibbald, Carey
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The primary objectives of this research program are to collect baseline data on the bathymetry and depth contours, water chemistry, limnological profiles, sediments, and benthic biota, fish presence and habitat. The Bathymetry field program will be conducted in August 2014, prior to the Aquatics and Fisheries field programs. Data from the bathymetry field program is required to finalize samplin...


Bathymetry Surveys - Mackenzie Valley Fibre Link
Principal Investigator: Sibbald, Carey
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective of the field program is to obtain necessary bathymetric data to complete volumetric calculations to determine the maximum winter water withdrawal volumes from potential water sources. As the field program will primarily be focused on the Fort Good Hope – Dempster Highway portion, the field crew (consisting of two people, plus a bear monitor) will mobilize out of Inuvik and/or Fort...


Lake Bathymetry Survey for the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway, 2013
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objective of the survey is to gather lake bathymetry data in support of estimating water volumes required for regulatory approval for winter water extraction. This work will be completed following the commitments of the Hamlet of Tuktoyaktuk, Town of Inuvik, and the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT), as found in the Environmental Impact Statement for Construction of the Inuvik to ...


Tarsiut Caissons - Removal and Remediation Plan
Principal Investigator: Marshall, John J
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this project at Thetis Bay is to ensure there is no unforeseen debris in the water around the caissons prior to moving. The objective at Tuktoyaktuk is to see if the caissons could be moved close enough to shore to offer a benefit to mitigate shore erosion. One small bathymetry vessel would be used in the program and one large Northern Transportation Company (NTCL) mainline tu...


Erosion of carbon from high-latitude peatlands: Isotopic insight into fluvial transfer in the Mackenzie River Basin
Principal Investigator: Hilton, Robert G
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to correct for fossil particulate organic carbon (POC) input to the Mackenzie River, and to determine the loci of peatland organic carbon (OC) erosion and flux to the fluvial system. WATER VELOCITY TRANSECT At each sampling location, an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) will allow the research team to determine bathymetry, water velocity trans...


Testing the northern route for Younger Dryas meltwater
Principal Investigator: Keigwin, Lloyd D
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: Here is the project summary from the (U.S.) National Science Foundation proposal that led to this expedition: The research team propose a three-year project to investigate the origin of the Younger Dryas cooling that began about 13,000 years ago. For decades this cold event has been associated with sea ice in the Arctic and North Atlantic Oceans, and the storage and release of fresh water from ...
