Effects of permafrost disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, Banks Island, NWT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: Thaw slumps are one of the most dramatic thermokarst features in permafrost regions. The number of thaw slumps on Banks Island has more than tripled in recent decades and it is likely that this change is altering terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. This multidisciplinary research project investigates the short- (1960s-present day) and long-term (Medieval Warm Period to today) impacts of permafrost...


Mining Compliance Process in Northern Canada
Principal Investigator: Lajoie, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective is to examine compliance processes for mining regulation in the North and identify ways in which they can potentially be improved. The research team are six members of an Action Canada Task Force team, coming from various professions and backgrounds across Canada, interested in making a positive contribution to the policy theme: “Applying lessons from Canadian history in the developm...


Tarsiut Caissons - Removal and Remediation Plan
Principal Investigator: Marshall, John J
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this project at Thetis Bay is to ensure there is no unforeseen debris in the water around the caissons prior to moving. The objective at Tuktoyaktuk is to see if the caissons could be moved close enough to shore to offer a benefit to mitigate shore erosion. One small bathymetry vessel would be used in the program and one large Northern Transportation Company (NTCL) mainline tu...


Social and political perceptions of environmental resources extraction projects in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Perombelon, Brice B.P
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The principal researcher wishes to study the environmental impacts of resources extraction projects (present and future) on the community members. The hope is to do this through a survey of their perceptions of environmental problems caused by resources extraction projects (gas & oil) and see whether they think that these projects will create more problems of environmental degradation (for example...


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...


The cumulative impacts of rapid environmental change in the northwestern NWT: Investigating the impacts of mega-slump disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the lower Peel watershed, NW
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a multidisciplinary project involving communities, governments and academic researchers. The goals are to: 1) inventory and track broad scale changes in landscape disturbances; 2) determine the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on the physical and chemical characteristics and ecology of streams and rivers; 3) determine disturbance thresholds relevant to the health of stream...


Environmental Baseline Surveys of the Fortune Minerals Ltd. NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Harris, Katherine M.
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this research project is to collect baseline environmental information for future environmental effects monitoring. Surveys may include assessments of fish, fish habitat, benthic invertebrates, plankton, water and sediment quality, wetlands and geochemistry. Equipment for surveys will be limited to standard field measuring and surveying equipment, such as automated water qualit...


Evaluating the environmental impacts of permafrost mega-disturbances along the Dempster Highway, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this research project is to document the extent of ecological change in impacted stream basins draining the eastern slope of the Richardson Mountains and to determine the mechanisms of slump initiation and stabilization. This study will focus on the Stoney Creek catchment, which runs parallel to the Dempster Highway and empties into the Peel River at Fort McPherson, NT. The catchm...


Combined Phase I/II Environmental Site Assessment of Ten Sites; Norris Lake Gold Exploration Site, River Lake Portage Dump, Wijinnedi Lake Exploration Site, Martin House Fuel Cache, Pine Point Railbed
Principal Investigator: Zawacky, Summer R
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: The objective of this study is to complete comprehensive site investigations at each location (10 in total) to determine environmental and physical conditions. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater, and the identification of any hazardous or non-hazardous materials left on site. Columbia personnel will f...
