Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2011 2010
Summary: The 2016 Limited Site Investigations may include a Site reconnaissance to assess Site conditions, conduct maintenance, obtain water samples to determine water resources for the planned 2017 temporary camp, install a weather station, and obtain environmental soil and water samples as potentially required by regulators. The objectives of the Site Remediation Program are to: 1) remove and dispose ...

Environmental Studies for EL470 - 5yr
Principal Investigator: White, Brenda M.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this project are to conduct ongoing monitoring and assessment programs of surface water and groundwater in the Mackenzie River Special Management Zone. Surface Water Sampling Surface water samples will be collected from selected lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams. Selected water bodies in EL470 have already undergone bathymetric assessment and sampling. Groundwater Program...

Geotechnical and Hydrotechnical Field Investigation, Norman Wells to Canyon Creek
Principal Investigator: McGregor, Robyn
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective of the 2015 hydrotechnical assessment is to assess the known and potential watercourses along the proposed access road alignment. The 2015 geotechnical assessment will assess the terrain along the proposed access road alignment and the potential material sources within the project area. Observing the known and potential crossings along the alignment. During the field work the fo...

Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2013
Summary: The objective of the project is to remediate the abandoned well site by removing, containing and stabilizing contaminated materials in an on-site landfill, and remove debris and solid waste from the site. Large amounts of debris, drums and evidence of contaminants was found in soil, groundwater and surface water at the site during investigations in 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013. The proposed 2015 S...

2013 - 2014 Inuvik Tuktoyaktuk Highway Geotechnical Program
Principal Investigator: Purcka, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The Government of the Northwest Territories – Department of Transportation (DOT) proposed to conduct geotechnical investigations in the winter of 2014. The 2014 Program will be conducted to: • confirm the volume, quality and extent of material at Borrow Sources 174 and 309; and • prove the volume, quality and extent of material at Borrow Sources 312 West and PW19A available for use as suppl...

Using Inuvialuit Observations to Monitor Environmental Conditions in the Mackenzie Delta Region of the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Bennett, Trevor D
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The primary objective of this research involves testing a strategy for using Inuvialuit Knowledge to monitor environmental conditions in the Mackenzie Delta Region (MDR) of the Northwest Territories. Methods will include participatory photo mapping, community mapping, and photo elicitation interviews to monitor, record, document and communicate Inuvialuit observations of environmental change in th...

Mackenzie Valley Landslides Geotechnical Investigations
Principal Investigator: Wang, Baolin
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this field work is to better understand the movement behaviour of the landslides in the region. The Geological Survey of Canada’s research group lead by Dr. Baolin Wang has been conducting landslide research in the region since 2004. This is the final year of the project. The previous permits have expired. However, there is a need to make a follow up trip to the various landsli...

Surficial geology of Mackenzie Corridor
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: Project objectives are to map, identify, describe characteristics (geotechnical aspects) and date surficial deposits in the vicinity of the proposed pipeline corridor. This knowledge will assess: 1. granular resources. 2. slope instability, landslide occurrence and potential due mainly to instability of the active layer, forest fires and erosion. 3. geochemical analysis on a regional basis of till...

Shell Canada Limited Niglintgak 2006/2007 Winter Field Program
Principal Investigator: Seligman, Ben
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The proposed fieldwork is an expansion of previous years' fieldwork to develop a suitable knowledge base for planning and development. In addition, some routine maintenance at Camp Farewell will be conducted. The majority of the proposed work is planned for the Niglintgak area and is focused around the Gas Conditioning Facility (GCF) and the Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) crossing site, as ...

Active layer moisture and carbon dynamics in the wetland-dominated zone of discontinuous permafrost
Principal Investigator: Schincariol, Robert A
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: An improved understanding of the thaw and drainage processes, and exchanges of energy and moisture that control the flow of water in the vast wetland region of Canada is needed to improve weather and climate change predictions. Large-scale experiments on soils of the Central Mackenzie River basin will be used to elucidate moisture and carbon transport processes in the active layer. Laboratory base...
