This activity describes and predicts the occurrence of discontinuous permafrost in the northern Great Slave Lake region to assist in planning, development and maintenance of community and industry infrastructure. Changes in climate are affecting permafrost distribution, temperatures and geotechnical conditions. Different landscapes across the region are exhibiting varying responses to warming. Thi...
Principal Investigator:Heck, Darren M Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this project are:
a) Inventory of historical and ecological resources in the area;
b) past, present and future uses of the area by community residents;
c) identification of potential impacts of use of the land use areas supporting access and maintenance (i.e. camps, trails, buffer areas and work areas); and
d) provide follow-up mechanism for on-going communication of issues i...
Principal Investigator:Patterson, R. Tim Licenced Year(s):
Through analysis of sediment/water interface samples, freeze cores, and dendrochronology the researchers intend to:
i) develop a comprehensive climatic history along a 2° latitudinal gradient in the central NT, variously based on an analysis of freeze cores from lakes along the route of the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road (TCWR);
ii) determine the relationship between modern lake catchments an...

This research project is a part of a student project under the Aurora College Environment and Natural Resources Training Program (ENRTP). The objective of this project is to find out when, what, historical background, and animals harvested at Husky Lakes camp/cabin area, and to ask how would the Inuvik to Tuk All-Weather Highway affects their camp/cabin locations.
Five survey questions will be...
Principal Investigator:Fabijan, Michael F Licenced Year(s):
The study will focus on collecting information from Inuvialuit elders and harvesters. Of particular interest are community issues and concerns, local knowledge and recommendations with respect to the potential effects of the proposed project.
Participants will be asked to discuss their perceptions of the potential effects of the project on community health and wellness, their knowledge of tradi...
Principal Investigator:Krizan, Julia Licenced Year(s):
A Fish Habitat Assessment and an Archaeological Assessment are required for the proposed Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway. A Fish Habitat Assessment and an Archaeological Impact Assessment Report will be developed with data obtained from the proposed highway corridor during fall 2011.
IMG-Golder Corp. is proposing to carry out a fish habitat and archaeological assessment program along the highway ...
Principal Investigator:Johnson, Mary Ann Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this project will be to verify baseline environmental information available for the highway route. The field program will focus on a flyover of the proposed highway route to verify the baseline information that is available for potential fish and wildlife habitat as well as plant communities. The environmental field program will be conducted at the same time as the archaeological ...

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...
Principal Investigator:Lennie-Misgeld, Peter Licenced Year(s):
The main objective of the program is to collect fisheries and environmental baseline information to better understand the environmental characteristics of the Great Bear River and to support potential future development of hydropower on the Great Bear River. The program is not being conducted to support a specific project as there are no hydropower projects planned for the Great Bear River at thi...

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, and to guide mitigation during construction of the new dam for Bluefi...
