The researchers propose to address critical information gaps by embarking on a research project in the South Nahanni River Watershed. The objectives of the research are:
1) To quantify natural variability of benthic macroinvertebrate communities at reference sites un-impacted by human activity;
2) To determine whether mining activities degrade the health of streams in the South Nahanni Watershed...

This study will investigate the quality of aquatic sediment and evaluate its potential as an indicator of ecosystem health in the Coppermine River basin. Sediment cores will be collected by boat or float plane at Lac de Gras and Point Lake. The following field measurements will be recorded: water temperature and pH, and sediment colour, texture and pH. In addition, personal interviews will be c...
