Conduct ongoing monitoring and assessment programs, including areas in the Mackenzie River Special Management Zone (SMZ), for: a) Surface water; b) Groundwater; c) Fisheries and aquatic resources; d) Wildlife and wildlife habitat (including waterfowl, moose, caribou, bear, breeding birds and species at risk); e) Vegetation, rare plants...


Structure, Carbon Dynamics, and Silvichronology of Boreal Forests
Principal Investigator: Osawa, Akira
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: Main objective of the fieldwork is to collect data in jack pine and black spruce forests on annual movement of organic matter and carbon. For this purpose, the researchers will continue measurement of the growth of fine roots and amount of aboveground litter. Additional objective is to establish a several-square-kilometer study area of mostly black spruce for a regional study of stand developmen...


2006 -2007 Biophysical and Reconnaissance Studies in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Hawkins, Jim R.
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: Several environmental and engineering studies were conducted between 2001 and 2006 to assess a proposed pipeline in the Mackenzie Valley. These studies will continue in 2007 and 2008. Route and site reconnaissance will be by helicopter, and crews will land at selected sites based on observations made during the flight. Reconnaissance surveys of road-water crossings will be performed. Pipeline-...


2006 - 2007 Biophysical and Reconnaissance Studies in the Gwich’in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Hawkins, Jim R.
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: Several biophysical and engineering studies on the feasibility of a pipeline in the Mackenzie Valley have been conducted, and will continue in 2007. Local knowledge, scientific research, and existing technical information are being used to develop a knowledge base for environmental protection plans, engineering design and regulatory processes. Route and site reconnaissance will be by helicopte...

Variation of near-surface ground temperatures in spruce forests, Mackenzie Delta, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Kanigan, Julian
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: An understanding of near-surface ground temperatures will provide a baseline to assess change and identify sensitive areas. The objective of this project is to determine the variation of near-surface ground temperatures within the Mackenzie Delta. Investigations have identified four spruce forest communities in the delta based on composition: spruce-alder-bearberry, spruce-feathermoss, spruce-crow...
