Baseline Monitoring of Arctic Vegetation and Snow Changes over the Bathurst Caribou Habitat using Satellite Remote Sensing and Community-based Field Observations
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: The goals of this research project are: 1. To fill the information gap on Bathurst caribou summer range conditions using satellite remote sensing data and community-based ground vegetation monitoring 2. To develop a cumulative impact assessment method that makes cumulative impact assessment possible even if data are incomplete and provides timely feedback for guiding the refinement of monitoring...

NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this study is to describe the terrestrial and aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Prosperous Lake and Bluefish Lake as per the Fisheries Authorization and the Water Licence. This may include investigating vegetation, water quality, benthic invertebrate populations, and fish. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation...

Environmental Baseline Surveys of the Fortune Minerals Ltd. NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Harris, Katherine M.
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this research project is to collect baseline environmental information for future environmental effects monitoring. Surveys may include assessments of fish, fish habitat, benthic invertebrates, plankton, water and sediment quality, wetlands and geochemistry. Equipment for surveys will be limited to standard field measuring and surveying equipment, such as automated water qualit...

Nahanni Aster Status Report
Principal Investigator: Harris, Allan G
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objective of this research project is to conduct fieldwork to determine the population size, distribution, and habitat of Nahanni Aster. Fieldwork will involve helicopter access to hotspring habitats. Presence/absence of Nahanni Aster will be recorded, stems counts will be conducted, and habitat and potential threats will be described. There are possible opportunities to promote the Nahanni ...

Lake trout diversity in Great Bear Lake: do deep-water forms exist?
Principal Investigator: Muir, Andrew M
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010
Summary: The objective of this project is to sample known and newly discovered deepwater (>50 m) habitats southwest of the Narakay Islands and within the McTavish Arm to determine if a deepwater humper or siscowet lake trout form occurs. Data on the occurrence and characteristics of deepwater lake trout forms from Great Bear Lake will fill in gaps in this North American lake trout dataset. Currently it is ...

Improving Habitat Connectivity to Enhance Productive Capacity of Arctic Freshwater Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Tonn, William
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) to study the freshwater ecology, hydrology, and hydraulics of small lakes and streams in the Lac de Gras basin before habitat modification; 2) to monitor the changes in ecosystem productive capacity resulting from habitat modifications designed to increase habitat connectivity and fish passage; and 3) to assess the effectiveness of such habitat modifications...

Dolly Varden Char Assessment in the Peel Plateau
Principal Investigator: Maier, Kris
Licenced Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to re-assess the anadromous component of the known Vittrekwa River Dolly Varden char population; 2) to investigate & assess other potential suitable Dolly Varden habitat; and 3) to confirm the presence of Dolly Varden char in the Stony Creek watershed. For the Vittrekwa River the research team plans to construct a fixed weir which will trap se...

FA Clause 8.1.3 2) to ground truth hydroacustic equipment by capturing fish to identify species, collect life history data, tag, and then release As stated in the Authorization for Works or Undertakings Affec...

Biological Studies of Waters along the Proposed Mackenzie Gas Pipeline Route - Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This study is designed to fill science gaps in Environment Canada’s understanding of the structure and functioning of the aquatic environment potentially impacted by various aspects of the Mackenzie Gas Project. While data collected during the Environmental Impact Assessment studies (carried out in conjunction with the proposed construction and operation of the Mackenzie Gas Pipeline) are relative...

Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: Specific activities for this field season include the following: (1) Resolution of the sources and fates of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in aquatic food webs of the Mackenzie Delta (year 3 of PhD thesis project of S. Tank). This information is needed to ultimately understand the relative role of bacterial (fueled by DOC) versus photosynthetic organisms and their importance in ultimately sup...
