Monitoring Temporal Trends of Human Environmental Contaminants in the NWT and Nunavut
Principal Investigator: Beveridge, Christopher
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The overall goal of this program is to establish a time trend of specific environmental contaminants in human blood and hair. A baseline study was completed in the Inuvik region in 1999–2000. A follow-up assessment to this baseline study will be undertaken this year to observe human exposure to specific contaminants across a representative cross-section of moderately and highly exposed regions (In...

Dust Distribution and Monitoring using Lichens as Bioindicators
Principal Investigator: Wytrychowski, Scott I
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2010 2005
Summary: Air quality is an issue at mine sites, and diamond mining can contribute large quantities of dust to the air. This dust may contain elevated levels of heavy metals. Vehicle and generator exhausts also contribute to air pollution and greenhouse gases. To acheive the goal of sustainable development, Diavik policy focuses on the need to identify potential risks and set targets for pollution preventio...

Inuvik Regional Human Contaminants Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: MacNeil, Chuck
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1998
Summary: The Inuvik Regional Human Contaminants Monitoring Program has finished sampling maternal scalp hair for methyl mercury analysis, and checking maternal and umbilical cord blood for certain organochlorines and metals. The communications phase is now beginning. As of March 2000 participants will have the option to review their medical health records and obtain their personal results. The compiled res...

Environmental study of the aquatic resources of the Thonokeid Lake area
Principal Investigator: Couture, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers will continue their study on fish and other aquatic organisms found in lakes and streams of the Thonokeid Lake area. Muscle and liver tissues of fish will be taken in order to assess levels of heavy metals. In addition, water chemistry data will be collected....

Hurwitz-Kaminak geological mapping
Principal Investigator: Aspler, L.B.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: A field crew of four people will map (by foot and boat) the rocks deposited in ancient (2,500 to 1,900 million year old) basins. These rocks will also be assessed for their economic potential. The field work will also involve the collection of water, moss and lichen to determine levels of contaminants as part of the northern contaminants study funded by the Arctic Environmental Strategy....

Contaminant analyses for wildlife food sources in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Bell, Bob
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: This project was initiated following the concern voiced by the six ISR communities about the presence and levels of contaminants in the major country food sources. Samples of body tissues will be taken from charr, whitefish, seals and belugas in order to assess for heavy metal, organochlorine and PCB contaminants. These samples will be taken while other field research is being conducted by Fishe...

Kam Lake, Yellowknife Bay/Area IV and V Great Slave Lake Fish Sampling Program
Principal Investigator: Harbicht, Stephen
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and his assistants will set gill nets in Kam Lake, areas IV and V of Great Slave Lake and Yellowknife Bay to collect fish samples for analysis to determine baseline levels of heavy metals in fish tissues....

Assessment of Metal Levels in Fish Tissue from Lupin Project Area 1990
Principal Investigator: Harbicht, Stephen
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and his team using gill nets will sample lake trout to determine the level of heavy metals in order to evaluate the bioaccumulation that has occurred....

Licence #2740
Principal Investigator: Kristensen, John
Licenced Year(s): 1982
Summary: As part of aquatic habitat and biological studies to sample fish, invertebrates, benthic stream vegetation tissue and water as well as to document aquatic habitat. Heavy Metal analysis will be carried out on the water, benthic sediments and plant tissue samples....

Licenced Year(s): 1979
Summary: (1) To conduct an inventory of tern and gull colonies: up to 20 herring gull eggs will be collected for pesticide analysis - North Arm of Great Slave Lake. (2) To conduct investigations into the concentrations of arsenic and heavy metals in ducks - Yellowknife area. (3) To conduct annual breeding bird census programs - Yellowknife area....
