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


A Program to Evaluate Changing Northern Lake Ice Regimes
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this research project is to complete on ice snow depth, ice thickness and composition survey along with collection under ice core water quality and biological information. Sample locations from previous years are located using a handheld GPS. On ice snow depth is measured using a tape measure. An ice auger is used to penetrate the ice cover and evaluate if white ice is present...


Bryophytes regeneration in burned peatlands in Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Guêné-Nanchen, Mélina
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to evaluate bryophytes regeneration in Northwest Territories burned peatlands to improve the understanding of the structure of mosses ecosystems. This new knowledge should improve the restoration method of disturbed peatlands where the reintroduction and regeneration mosses are problematic. Several sites will be studied in order to have a range of plant communit...


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...


Ecological Assessment Field Work for Lue Túé Sulái (the Five Fish Lakes) Candidate Cultural Conservation Area
Principal Investigator: Haas, Claudia A
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: This project is to fill gaps in ecological information on a Candidate Protected Area while it makes its way through the NWT Protected Areas Strategy (PAS) process. This information will be used by the working group to make recommendations on final boundary and management planning for the area. The study will be done at the same time as a study on mercury in fish being conducted by the Dehcho F...


Lutsel K'e Hydro Power Project - 2010 Winter Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Cote, Jason E
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: To determine the effects of low-flow conditions on overwintering fish habitats in target area. This will include water depth and velocity transects, fish sampling and dissolved oxygen level measurements. Sampling efforts will be focused on the habitats associated with the diversion reach of the Project and will also include habitats immediately upstream and downstream. At select locations, ic...


ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
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. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...


De Beers Snap Lake Mine - 2009 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: McCallum, Dee

Summary: This license has been issued for the scientific research application #942. The objective of the environmental monitoring programs is to fulfill the requirements outlined under the Snap Lake Mine’s Land Use Permit, Water Licence, Environmental Agreement and Fisheries Authorization and to meet De Beers’ corporate commitments on the environment. The environmental monitoring program will cover a...


2008 Baseline Studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. proposed Thor Lake Rare earth metals project (Aquatics and Hydrology component)
Principal Investigator: Sibbald, Carey
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008
Summary: This licence is issued for the scientific research application #914. The objective of this research is to provide a baseline study of the hydrology, groundwater, water and sediment quality and aquatic life in and around the Thor Lake area. Hydrology measurements will involve the installation of three continuous stream-flow gauging stations (at the outflow of Thor Lake, and at two of the inf...
