Principal Investigator:Gagnon, Catherine A Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this research project are to assess the processes used by the Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Co-op (ABEKC) to communicate within and beyond its members; to assess the contributions of the ABEKC in terms of building capacity, bonds and common learning amongst its participants: scientists, community monitors, board members, representatives from local organizations; and, to...

The objective is to describe the terrestrial and aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Prosperous Lake and Bluefish Lake. 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, and to guide mitigation during construction of the new dam for Bluefi...

Permafrost landforms are shrinking in response to climate warming. The researchers want to measure the amount of change each year and to measure the temperature of the permafrost year-round. In addition they want to measure the rate of plant recovery on disturbed areas resulting from the CANOL Project (1942-45).
Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan ...

Imperial Oil Resources Ventures Limited (Imperial) is planning to conduct the program on, and near, Exploration Licence 446 (Ajurak) in the Canadian sector of the Beaufort Sea. The 2009 Ajurak Field Collection Program (the program) will begin in July 2009, and is scheduled to be completed in March 2010. However if ice and weather conditions are difficult, or the required support vessels cannot be ...
Principal Investigator:Maaskant, Shirley Licenced Year(s):
The assessment component of this project will focus on identifying and documenting valued biophysical and archaeological components in the vicinity of proposed winter activities (i.e. proposed roads, well sites, and campsites). Information collected during the study will be used in planning and determining appropriate locations for 2009/2010 drilling activity. Recommended set-back distances will b...

The goal of this research is to substantially advance the understanding of how Canadian arctic tundra ecosystems function, and therefore how they are likely to be affected by perturbations such as climate change, resource development and extraction, and atmospheric pollution.
Variation in soil microbial communities and their effect on biogeochemical cycling will be determined with soil samples ...
Principal Investigator:Bhatti, Jagtar Licenced Year(s):2011201020092008
The objectives of this study are to: assess interannual and seasonal variations and key processes controlling CO2, CH4 and N2O dynamics along the Mackenzie Valley latitudinal gradient; investigate the amount and character of greenhouse gases (GHGs) released; understand physiographic and hydrodynamic conditions that control or influence soil GHGs (distributions and emissions).
The Mackenzie vall...

A new 156 km winter road is proposed, extending from the end of the Ingraham Trail to Lockhart Lake, following a route similar to that of the existing winter road. The objective is to acquire airborne digital imagery (including LiDAR and digital video) data to produce maps; to determine fish presence/absence in streams around the route and fish utilization of habitat, to determine potential fish h...
Principal Investigator:Prowse, Terry D Licenced Year(s):2008
The objectives of this study are to quantify the frequency and magnitude of ice jams in the Mackenzie River Delta, including the hydroclimatic conditions controlling their occurrence and associated floods, develop a hydraulic model of it, and investigate the importance of deep scour holes in the Mackenzie River.
This study is an expansion of previous research conducted in 2004. Ice jamming has ...
Principal Investigator:Moore, Steve M Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the field program is to document baseline conditions within the study area to be used for a water licence and land use application towards development of a lead and zinc mine adjacent to the old Pine Point property. This includes completing Ecosystem Classification, Surface Water Quality Sampling, Fish Habitat Assessments, and a Wildlife Utilization and Diversity Study.
