Establishing a watershed framework for assessing cumulative impacts of development
Principal Investigator: Chin, Krista
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: Objective 1: Build a partnership between government, communities, regulators and researchers to develop a watershed-based cumulative impact study in areas of oil and gas exploration in the Sahtu region. The Sahtu Renewable Resource Board (SRRB) can play an important coordinating role in bringing partners together and working with the communities to determine appropriate engagement in the projec...

Summary: The study is to continue establishing the groundwater and surface water conditions within the exploration licences prior to and during oil and gas exploration activities. Surface Water Quality Sample Collection Collect surface water samples once, during September 2015, from a reduced number of sampling locations targeted near areas where exploration activities have occurred. The water sampl...


Permafrost monitoring and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Sharon S
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This project continues the on-going monitoring program of permafrost and collection of baseline terrain information in the Mackenzie Valley Corridor, NWT). This phase of the project is largely data collection. Objectives are: • To provide baseline knowledge of permafrost and terrain conditions (specifically ground temperature and permafrost active layer thickness) and improve characterization...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué 2014 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Chisholm, Veronica
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies is to continue to describe the existing environment, and obtain information once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects. The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, geochemistry, hydrology, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources, dustfall, vegetation and soil information. The studies are ...

EKATI Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Lee, Claudine
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2014 to 2018 will be (1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and (2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week o...


Biomonitoring 2.0: biodiversity assessment in Slave River tributaries
Principal Investigator: Baird, Donald J
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: This project will assess the biodiversity in the Slave and Dog Rivers, NWT, using a variety of collection methods, to support the establishment of baseline biomonitoring conditions, and to explore the use of DNA-based identification of animals, plants and microorganisms. The food webs of these systems will also be described using stable isotope techniques. The project will contribute to the wider ...
