The purpose of the 2005 Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program is to initiate a long-term aquatics sampling program in order to produce a data set that will be used in trend analyses to track the overall effects of the project on the aquatic ecosystem of Lac de Gras and to confirm predictions made during the Environmental Assessment. This is achieved by conducting consistent annual sampling at fixed m...

The Amundsen Gulf Survey is a continuation of the Sachs Harbour Project begun in 1999. The survey will examine the benthic resources near the Inuvialuit communities of Sachs Harbour, Holman and Paulatuk. The survey will begin about the beginning of August in Sachs Harbour and will remain near Sachs for approximately 2 week before being picked up by the Laurier. Ship time limits work to approxima...
Principal Investigator:Carolsfeld, Joachim Licenced Year(s):
The researchers propose to collect invertebrates, algae and microorganisms with the use of SCUBA, plankton nets, bottom dredges, and intertidal collection. These samples will be sorted and frozen for later analysis in Halifax. The researchers wish to collect samples in about 25 sites, ranging from the southern tip of Liverpool Bay to south of Saunatuk. All collections will take place from small...
Principal Investigator:Digel, Mark Licenced Year(s):
Methods of data collection will include water quality and bottom sampling in Lac de Gras and Lac du Sauvage; automatic and manual water level recordings; bathometric work; automatic weather stations and the monitoring of air-borne particles and visibility; continuation of baseline studies of soils and terrain, and vegetation; fish population, habitat, health, and spawning habits studies; baseline ...
Principal Investigator:Green, John M. Licenced Year(s):19931990
Dr. Green will be sampling benthic fish and observing their distribution and abundance in relation to their effect on the feeding habits and reproductive success of black guillemots and other sea birds. He will use the samples to determine growth rates, food habits, and fecundity of the various benthic species....

To examine marine sedimentation and marine benthic faunal communities in the Pangnirtung Fiord by surveying, mapping, photographing and sampling. To measure tidal ranges, water current velocities, biological activities, sedimentation rates and the effects of freeze-up and break-up. To sample marine flora and fauna, sediment, fast and inter-tidal ice and diagnostic diatoms....
