Principal Investigator:Lennie-Misgeld, Janpeter Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of the study are as follows:
- Perform limited geotechnical analysis to confirm assumptions on foundation type and location and routing;
- Identify any archeological or cultural resources that may be impacted by the transmission line;
- Conduct environmental field work e.g. wildlife sightings and documentation, plant samples, caribou migration trails; and
- Use the information...

The Government of the Northwest Territories – Department of Transportation (DOT) proposes to conduct geotechnical investigations in the winters of 2013 and 2014. Geotechnical investigations will include drilling of boreholes, sampling and analysis of granular material collected, and installation of thermistor (temperature) cables. The geotechnical investigations are conducted to support design and...

The goals of the hydrotechnical research are to:
- learn if there are possible problem areas due to water or ice along the proposed road;
- choose the best proposed bridge location so that a new bridge won't wash out like the temporary one does; and
- decide on length of bridge so that abutment locations can be chosen for later geotechnical drilling sites.
The goals of the geotechnical resea...

The environmental monitoring program will cover an assessment of aquatics (benthic invertebrates, fish, water quality, plankton, and sediment quality), hydrology, geochemistry and North Pile environmental inspection & geotechnical assessments, wildlife, vegetation, air quality and archaeology.
The aquatics program involves the monitoring of; water quality, sediment quality, zooplankton, phytopl...
Principal Investigator:Hawkins, Jim R. Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the field program is to conduct geotechnical investigations on soil and ground conditions at the site of the proposed Inuvik Area Facility (IAF) and along the route of the all-weather road connecting the IAF to the Dempster Highway, in order to design foundations and roads, and for subsequent applications.
In order to complete the fieldwork before the spring thaw, an access roa...

The main objective of this project is to improve the understanding of triggering factors and slope failure mechanisms of landslides in the Mackenzie Valley. This knowledge will enable better environmental impact assessments of new infrastructure projects proposed in the region.
Investigations carried out in 2006 will continue with detailed mapping of landslides. Soil sampling will also be condu...

The objective of this project is to improve understanding of triggering factors and slope failure mechanisms of landslides in the Mackenzie Valley. This knowledge will enable better environmental impact assessments of new infrastructure projects in the region.
Investigations of the 2006 site will be continued. Detailed mapping of landslides and soil sampling will be done. Three to five 1m x 1...

The Geological Survey of Canada maintains a network of active layer and permafrost temperature monitoring sites in the Mackenzie region in order to document the response of permafrost conditions to climate change. Gaps exist in the network in the permafrost zones north of Norman Wells, the Mackenzie Delta region, and on shorelines and coastlines. Enhancement of the network is essential to provide ...
Principal Investigator:Martin, Sandy D Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the proposed summer geotechnical investigations is to gather information on soil and ground conditions adjacent to a proposed pipeline right-of-way in the Mackenzie Valley. The gathered information will be used in preparing subsequent regulatory applications. The proposed investigations will focus on four potential borrow sources, which will yield information for use in determinin...
Principal Investigator:Marken, Sandra L Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the study is to determine: the best access for a drilling and development location on Richards Island, which lakes may be suitable for water withdrawal, and geotechnical baseline conditions along a proposed pipeline corridor, proposed gas conditioning facility location, and possible quarry site.
The bathymetry program will use a portable zodiac and bathymetry equipment to asses...
