Benthic Macroinvertebrate Monitoring (Slave and Hay Rivers)
Principal Investigator: Levasseur, Annie
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project is to establish a baseline for benthic invertebrates’ community structure and composition in the transboundary reaches of the Slave and Hay Rivers and to track their status and conditions over time to assess ecosystem health and provide an early warning of change or stress in the environment. The monitoring plan involves selecting and sampling several 500m long re...

Summary: The objectives of this research is to: 1) assess the processes used by the Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Co-op (ABEKC) to communicate within and beyond its members; 2) to assess the contributions of the ABEKC in terms of building capacity, bonds and common learning amongst its participants: scientists, community monitors, board members, representative from local organisation; and, 3) to ...


NATCL Cantung 2017 EEM Program
Principal Investigator: Carson, Richard J
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2015
Summary: The objectives are to evaluate if there are differences in biological parameters among study sites and between years at the Tungsten Mine site; as well as to determine whether observed differences from the most recent (2015) Environmental Effects Monitoring study are still present and whether any differences are the result of mining practices. The study objectives are to evaluate fish health, ...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué 2014 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Kramers, Patrick
Licenced Year(s): 2017 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, hydrology, geochemistry, vegetation, soil, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources data and wildlife occurrence. These study ...


Diavik Aquatics Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: 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...


Discovery Mine (NWT) Year-10 Long-Term Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Montgomery, Shelagh
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The Discovery Mine long term monitoring (LTM) program has as its primary objective to verify the effectiveness of remedial measures at the site. This will be accomplished via a Geotechnical Monitoring and Visual Inspection; Terrestrial Environment Monitoring; Water Quality Monitoring, and Aquatic (fish) Monitoring. As part of the Phase II LTM for the Discovery Mine site, the program addresses i...


Metal levels in large-bodied fishes near impacted lakes near Yellowknife, NWT
Principal Investigator: Somers, Gila L
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: 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...


Water Ecosystem Monitoring using Earth Observations
Principal Investigator: Chamberland, Joseph
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: 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 ...

Summary: 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...


Satellite Monitoring for Assessing Resource Development’s Impact on Bathurst Caribou (SMART)
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: 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...
