Principal Investigator:Somers, Gila L Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this project are to collect fish tissue samples from species of subsistence importance to 1) establish a long-term community monitoring program for contaminants in fish; and 2) to monitor potential spatial and temporal trends in metal concentrations (including mercury) in fish tissues within the Yellowknife region. The data acquired will be added to existing and concurrently coll...
Principal Investigator:Wells, David A Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this project is to revisit fixed sample stations at near-field, mid-field and far-field sites over the course of the year in an effort to determine any seasonal variation that may exist and confirm impact predictions.
The AEMP Version 3.5 will consist of the following components: Traditional Ecological Knowledge,
Dust Deposition; Effluent and Water Chemistry; Indicators of Eut...

The research project Water Ecosystems Monitoring using Earth Observation aims to define an Earth Observation (EO) driven monitoring program to provide information towards monitoring environmental indicators of northern ecosystem health. Once the project is done information on water indicators including water temperature, suspended sediment concentrations, water levels, and ice quality and will be ...
Principal Investigator:Vizina, Yvonne N Licenced Year(s):
Interview and collect survey data from educators at select Aboriginal post-secondary places of learning about their sustainability practices and policies, links to community-based conservation practices, and involvement with national and international decision-making processes on environmental issues. Three publishable manuscripts will be produced based on research data including:
1) A manuscript...
Principal Investigator:Chisholm, Veronica Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Chen, Wenjun Licenced Year(s):
We have two specific objectives over the next three years:
1) to improve the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the zone of influence (ZOI) from resource development disturbed areas in the Bathurst caribou habitat, and their relationships with caribou habitat use and productivity, by integrating traditional knowledge, field surveys, and remote sensing technology; and,
2) to investig...
Principal Investigator:Machtans, Hilary Licenced Year(s):
The study is part of the Phase 5 Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM) program, which is requirement under the Fisheries Act, Metal Mining Effluent Regulations (MMER). The objective of the study is to carry out the second year of periodic monitoring of fish and benthos at the determined study locations; Jackfish Bay (exposure area), Horseshoe Island Bay (reference area for fish survey) and Kam Ba...
Principal Investigator:Carson, Richard Licenced Year(s):
The objectives are to evaluate if there are differences in biological parameters among study sites and between years of the Environmental Effects Monitoring study are still present and whether any differences are the result of current mining practices, historical mining practices, or a combination of the two.
The design will include studies on fish (non-lethal sampling of slimy sculpin), benthi...
Principal Investigator:Panayi, Damian Licenced Year(s):2016
The objective of the Bluefish monitoring programs are is to monitor flow, water levels, sediment deposition, and monitor fish use of the compensation habitat in Bluefish Lake, and fish use of the Yellowknife River as per the Bluefish FAA Fisheries Act Authorization and Water License.
The monitoring programs at Bluefish are multiyear programs that are required under the Fisheries Act Authorizati...
Principal Investigator:Crewe, Jodi Licenced Year(s):
The Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Society (ABEKS) 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, a...
