Continuation of the Gordon Lake Assessment Project
Principal Investigator: Doucet, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The primary objective of this research program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions of nine sites in the Gordon Lake region. This research will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater. Samples of biota (e.g. Hyalella) may be collected at certain sites during the field program. The potential for...


Permafrost Thaw and Implications for the Cycling of Radionuclides in the Canadian North
Principal Investigator: Bond, Matthew J
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this research is to determine whether permafrost thaw in the Canadian north is resulting in the release of historic radionuclides to surface waters. The results of this study will be incorporated into a larger model of radionuclide fate and transport in the Canadian north. Field work will involve sampling surface water (triplicate 500 mL samples), groundwater seepage (triplicat...


Kennady North Diamond Project
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2016
Summary: The objective of this research is to document existing environmental conditions surrounding the Kennady North Diamond Project. Hydrology studies include the measurement of selected lake inflow and outflow and stream profile through field surveys, and installation of data loggers to continually monitor lake levels through the open-water season. Hydrology studies will be initiated during the spri...


Hydrological Remote Sensing
Principal Investigator: Berg, Aaron A
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The main objectives of this research are to: 1. monitor the spatial variability of soil moisture at approximately a 10km resolution in the region of Trail Valley Creek (TVC); and, 2. to test the soil moisture retrieval algorithms in high organic soils through both satellite based measurements and with the use of a ground based radiometer. To achieve the first objective, the research team will...


NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective is to describe the aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Bluefish Lake and Prosperous Lake as per the Fisheries Authorization and the Water Licence. This may include investigating aquatic vegetation, water quality and quantity, benthic invertebrates, fish and substrate. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation or produc...


The effect of permafrost slumping on carbon delivery from land to water
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The objective of this study is to understand how permafrost slumping increases the mobilization of organic and inorganic carbon from land to water, and the effects of this movement on stream communities. To do this work, the research team will measure streamwater chemistry upstream and downstream of slump sites. The team will also examine the fate of this carbon by undertaking incubation experimen...


Permafrost, river, and groundwater inputs of trace elements and nutrients to the Mackenzie River estuary
Principal Investigator: Charette, Matthew
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objectives are to measure a suite of trace elements and isotopes (TEIs) in the active layer and permanently frozen layer of permafrost cores sampled near the Mackenzie River, and to compare these concentrations to those observed in submarine groundwater discharge and Mackenzie River discharge in order to determine whether permafrost-associated TEIs are being transported to the coastal Arctic. ...


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 ...


City of Yellowknife Gold Project
Principal Investigator: Campbell, Joseph W
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: Follow-up on exploration activity associated with MVLWB land use permit MV2014C0005 on Terrax Minerals Inc. City of Yellowknife Gold Project. Work would include initial environmental baseline work, and expansion of research programs to establish sufficient study for possible future Environmental Impact Assessment of potential mine development if exploration activities are successful. Work will ...


Permafrost in the western Arctic
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steve V
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The primary objectives of this research are: 1) to develop and test new methods of monitoring permafrost landscape change; 2) to investigate the impacts of natural and human disturbance on permafrost terrain and the ground temperature conditions in natural environments and in communities; and 3) assess the physical and chemical characteristics of permafrost. To achieve the objectives the follow...
