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 ...
Principal Investigator:Lamoureux, Scott F Licenced Year(s):
The goal of this project is to collect sediment cores and water samples from a lake, to be analysed as an indication of past snow melt and stream flow in the area.
Two personnel will camp at the site for 5 days in late May. In late June, early July and/or late August they will return by helicopter from a neighboring camp in Nunavut for two or three visits, 3-4 hours each visit. A skidoo will be...
Principal Investigator:Smith, Rod Licenced Year(s):
This study will test the hypothesis that pre-Holocene (older than 10, 000 years) lake sedimentary records exist within modern lake basins found on Ellesmere Island. Recent research has not been able to penetrate beyond a layer of course sand and pebbles. Recent technological improvements in the coring apparatus should allow the full penetration of this material, as well as the hypothesized older...

Researchers will collect samples of sediments from the bottom of Great Slave Lake at sites near Hay River, the Slave River delta and the channel region east of the Slave River. This data will allow a better understanding of how fast sediments are deposited on the lake bottom in various regions. Researchers will also collect small animals (invertebrates) which are eaten by fish as part of an over...

The Researchers will sample lakewater and lake sediments from several study sites near Resolute and in the High Arctic near Alert. At each lake they will analyze the water chemistry and collect lake muds. The lake muds contain a historical record of past pollution (black carbon particles) as well as biological indicators (for example, diatom algae) of environmental change....
Principal Investigator:Fletcher, W.K. Licenced Year(s):
The research will involve the collection of soil, lake sediments and waters. Soil and lake sediments will be sieved to give different size fractions (sand, silt, clay, etc.) and each fraction analyzed for gold to determine which size fraction is best to use in gold exploration....
Principal Investigator:Gajewski, Konrad Licenced Year(s):200820042001199419931992
The Researcher will collect lake sediment cores from Somerset Island and northwest Cornwallis Island. The pollen and sediment characteristics will be analyzed in a laboratory to reconstruct the vegetation and climate history of the past 8000-9000 years of these regions....
Principal Investigator:Burn, Chris R Licenced Year(s):
The research team will monitor the amount of heave that occurs in lake-bottom sediments during winter, after water freezes to the bottom of lakes, because these environments are the best for examining the hydrology of frost heaving....
