EKATI Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Lee, Claudine
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2014 to 2018 will be (1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and (2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week o...


Characterization of the reference condition of northern biota and assessment of potential changes due to mining
Principal Investigator: Dube, Monique G
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objectives of this research are three-fold: 1) to determine the natural variability of benthic invertebrate and fish communities at sites free of human impact; 2) to determine any changes in these due to mining activity relevant to regional variability; and 3) to establish dose response relationships and critical thresholds for stressors including mine effluent, ammonia, a hydrocarbon indicato...


2002 Panda Diversion Channel Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Moore, Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: This project is to meet the requirements of the Fish Habitat Compensation Agreement between BHP and DFO. The purpose of the project is to monitor the effectiveness of created fish habitat within the Panda Diversion Channgel. Assessments will include an e...


New ischnacanthid acanthodians from the Lower Devonian of the Mackenzie Mountains, NT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Hermus, Chelsea
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The main objective of the project is to collect fossils of two specific groups of early fishes (acanthodians and heterostracans) to supplement specimens already collected for research projects at the University of Alberta. The field party plans to journe...


The effectiveness of a diversion channel in providing fish habitat in NWT barrenlands
Principal Investigator: Jones, Nicholas
Licenced Year(s): 2001 2000 1999
Summary: Recently BHP Diamonds Canada has "dewatered" a number of lakes and created a diversion channel to re-route water around two open pit mines. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of the diversion canal as habitat before and after it is enhanced with fish habitat structures and also in relation to natural streams in the area. In early spring Arctic grayling will be captured in we...


Study of potential environmental impacts of waste materials in the marine waters near Cambridge Bay
Principal Investigator: Johnston, Laura
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: Samples of sediment, water and different marine species such as fish, marine invertebrates (including sea urchins, clams and crabs), and microscopic organisms will be collected by divers from the underwater dumpsite in Cambridge Bay. These samples will be assessed for contaminants such as heavy metals and PCB's. The study is primarily being conducted to determine if the waste materials of the du...


Metabolism of Arctic Organisms
Principal Investigator: Ballantyne, J.S.
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The research will determine the kinds of fats of Arctic fish and invertebrates found in various parts of the body (blood, liver, kidney, muscle, brain) and how they change when the fish move from freshwater into seawater or when the temperature changes. The studies will determine how Arctic animals are different from similar animals found in warmer climates and how Arctic animals are adapted to Ar...


Tokyo Sea Life Park Collection, 1992
Principal Investigator: Nakayama, Tsunesuke
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The researcher and his team will collect arctic marine life such as fishes, invertebrates and sea algaes in order to contribute to the conservation of marine environments, and deepen understanding of arctic marine life. Tokyo Sea Life Park has started research on breeding behavior and early life history of arctic marine animals, as well as exhibits in the Tokyo Sea Life Park of arctic marine anim...


Investigations of the Metabolism of Arctic Organisms
Principal Investigator: Glemet, Helene
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: The Researchers will continue a study begun in 1990. They will study the types of fat found in muscle and liver of Arctic fishes and marine invertebrates....


The Creation and Utilization of an Artifical Reef in the Churchill Region
Principal Investigator: Thornton, Sheila
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher will create an artifical reef in the Churchill region and develop an arctic ecosystem study site. She will create a species inventory which will involve benthic sampling using SCUBA gear. Species include benthic marine invertebrates, fish and pelagic invertebrates found in 0-20 metres of water....
