Evaluation of Climate Change impacts on Transportation Systems
Principal Investigator: Ford, James D
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: This proposed project will develop critical scientific methods for quantifying transportation vulnerabilities and adaptation opportunities, filling knowledge gaps about transportation vulnerabilities and opportunities for action. Designing and implementing an Arctic vulnerability and adaptation index for transportation systems and infrastructure is crucial to improving the understanding of how ...

Inuvik – Tuktoyaktuk Highway 2013-2014 Geotechnical Investigations Program
Principal Investigator: Patrie, Wayne
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: 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...

EL462 and EL463 Aggregate and Permafrost Mapping - Geophysical Survey and Confirmatory Drilling
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to provide a better understanding of the permafrost under a proposed road right-of-way (ROW) and to delineate potential aggregate deposits. This will include mapping: permafrost distribution, massive ice bodies (including wedge ice), depth to massive ice, lower contacts of massive ice, zones of thermokarst, ice rich sediments (thaw sensitive), active la...

NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective is to describe the terrestrial and aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Prosperous Lake and Bluefish Lake. This may include investigating vegetation, water quality, benthic invertebrate populations, and fish. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation, to guide mitigation during construction of the new dam for Bluefish H...

Assessment of Fisheries Potential of the Tuktoyaktuk to Source 177 All-Weather Road Impact Area
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objectives of this project are to characterize the habitats and shorelines of the streams that would be crossed by the Tuktoyaktuk to Source 177 all-weather road. The impact area will be recorded and referenced with Global Positioning System (GPS) locations. The information will be transferred to a Geographic Information System (GIS) to complete a habitat map for the area. The Hamlet of T...

Codes and Standards and Climate Change Adaptation in the Canadian North
Principal Investigator: Malcolm, David
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: The purpose of this research is to collect information that will lead to a better understanding of how built environment infrastructure is critical to the provision of services to the residents, industry, and government in the NWT, and how the effects of climate change may impact the provision of these services. A case study based approach forms a central nexus for the project in terms of iden...

Community-Based Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Workshops
Principal Investigator: Ritchie, Douglas G.
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: This project consists of conducting a series of workshops with community governments and residents on the topic of climate change, current and future impacts of climate change on municipal services, as well as possible measures that can be implemented to help communities adapt to climate change. The goal of the workshop is to document concerns, identify areas for further research, and determine po...

Environmental Change, Risks, Management and Infrastructure in Olokhaktomiut (Holman)
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Tristan D
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The purpose of this project is to learn about the types of environmental changes Holman has faced in the past and how these changes have affected community infrastructure. The researcher seeks to describe community infrastructure and how it might be affected by environmental change. The researcher will identify who, or which agencies, will be expected to respond to risks affecting infrastructure a...

Assessment of Impacts of Mackenzie Delta Petroleum Activities on Aquatic Ecosystem Health, Year 1: Lakes (Parsons Lake Anchor Site)
Principal Investigator: Halliwell, Douglas
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: The objectives of this program are; 1) to characterize baseline water, sediment, and benthic invertebrate conditions in one experimental lake (Parsons Lake) and two control lakes near the Mackenzie Gas Project's (MGP) Parsons Lake Anchor Site; 2) to cho...

Assessing Impacts of Permafrost Degradation on Community Infrastructure Due to Climate Change: Modeling, Simulation and Adaptation Costing
Principal Investigator: Zhou, Fuqun
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: Structural infrastructure in northern communities is dependent on the permafrost layer for stability. The thawing and disappearance of the permafrost layer has accelerated in recent decades, damaging buildings and other infrastructure, and causing public...
