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...

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...

Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Coop: Community Based Ecological Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Svoboda, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2017 2015 2013 2012 2011 2009 2008 2006
Summary: The Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Coop uses both local and scientific knowledge to monitor and assess changes in an area that covers the range of the Porcupine Caribou Herd and nearby coastal and marine areas. Interviews with local experts are conducted annually by community researchers. Observations about fish, berries, caribou, unusual animal sightings, weather conditions, and other as...

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...

Loche Liver Study
Principal Investigator: Thompson, Amy L
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application # 778. This research will examine the livers of Loche fish in the GSA. This research will be completed through: 1) field collection of loche in each of the GSA communities; 2) biological sampling of loche; 3) analysis of stomach health and aging (using isotopes). More specifically, biological measurements will be taken for ea...

Caribou impact assessment and monitoring guidelines
Principal Investigator: Lines, Stephen A
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: The objective of this research is to develop, using an ecology based approach, scientifically rigorous guidelines for impact assessment and monitoring of caribou for the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board and Nunavut Impact Review Board (the Boards). This is being done so that the information collected by proponents allows for more reliable differentiation between natural varia...

2007 Field Monitoring - Matthews Lake and Area Fish Habitat Restoration and Enhancement Project
Principal Investigator: Van Humbeck, Joe
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: The objective of the 2007 portion of the project is to monitor control sites and treatment sites, and collect information on the habitat utilization. Data collected will be used to evaluate the continued success and effectiveness of the habitat construction and enhancement. Field crews will fly to Matthews Lake, landing either on the runway or the lake. The Treeline Lodge, where the research te...

Analaysis of Bathurst Caribou Herd Dynamics Using a Proxy Indicator
Principal Investigator: Zalatan, Rebecca
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: Caribou populations fluctuate over long time spans, however, long-term records of population cycles are scarce. The population dynamics of the Bathurst caribou herd across the Northwest Territories will be reconstructed using two proxy indicators of cli...

Climatic Relationships to Phenological Patterns Among Arctic Plant Species
Principal Investigator: Clark, Karin
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: The objectives of the research are to get a better understanding of how caribou foraged plant species might be responding to climate. This information may be used to make predictions of how plants might adapt to a warmer climate and in turn how this mig...

Morphological Diversity in Lake Trout within Large North American Lakes: Effects of Lake Physiography on Differentiation between Deep and Shallow Forms
Principal Investigator: Eschenroder, Randy
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The immediate objective of the research is to determine whether unique morphotypes of lake trout exist in Great Slave Lake. The long term objective is to determine the distribution and ecology of unique morphotypes in North America. By studying Great Sla...
