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...
Principal Investigator:Rainbird, Robert H Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the project is to better understand the geology of the region through collection and analysis of rock specimens and regional geological mapping. This year the researchers would like to collect hand specimens of rocks for future studies and to look for areas where more detailed studies can be done in the future. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist m...
Principal Investigator:Neufeld, Lori Licenced Year(s):
WorleyParsons, on behalf of Imperial Oil, is planning to conduct a remote sensing pilot project through use of a fixed-wing aircraft to capture environmental information on approximately 100 former drilling sites, as well as some former staging areas, campsites, artificial islands in the Beaufort Sea and other facilities located in the Northwest Territories. The purpose of the project is to determ...
Principal Investigator:Millman, Peter M Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the program is to observe surface geological features and document these observations. From a geological perspective the objective of the project is to complete a reconnaissance of the Cambrian and Proterozoic sections in 4 areas.
Field operations will take approximately 6 days to complete. The project team will mobilize by helicopter daily from Norman Wells for the western...
Principal Investigator:Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR Licenced Year(s):
Project objectives are to map, identify, describe characteristics (geotechnical aspects) and date surficial deposits in the vicinity of the proposed pipeline corridor. This knowledge will assess: 1. granular resources. 2. slope instability, landslide occurrence and potential due mainly to instability of the active layer, forest fires and erosion. 3. geochemical analysis on a regional basis of till...
Principal Investigator:Hawkins, Jim R. Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the program is to map areas along the right-of-way where the ground is unfrozen (taliks) and to locate ice wedges and larger, deeper areas of massive ice, in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. Shallow geophysical surveys will provide information on subsurface conditions. ARGO tracked vehicles will tow geophysical instruments (EM31, Ohm Mapper, or GEM-2) behind them. A ground-penetr...
Principal Investigator:Kim, Jae Licenced Year(s):2007
The objective of the proposed survey is to obtain a high resolution, highly accurate, three-dimensional topographic image of the study area. The data collected from the survey will be used to assist in planning for construction of winter and all-season roads and airstrip for the proposed Parsons Lake natural gas field development program. Terra Remote Sensing Inc. has been contracted to perform th...
Principal Investigator:Warren, Randall Licenced Year(s):
The purpose of the proposed study is to examine twenty-two historic well sites within the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, eight of which are located within the Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary. Investigations on six of the twenty-two sites will comprise geophysical surveys, and collection of benthic invertebrates, soil sediment, surface water samples, soil invertebrates and arthropods and plant tissue....
Principal Investigator:Hoos, Rick Licenced Year(s):2007
The purpose of the MacTung 2006 Environmental Baseline Studies is to collect additional information regarding meteorology, hydrology, aquatic resources, vegetation, terrain and wildlife in the MacTung Project area. This baseline environmental information is required to complete the environmental assessment and regulatory applications for approval of the proposed MacTung Mine project.
Principal Investigator:Soare, Richard J Licenced Year(s):20092007
The objective of this research is to take multiple samples of the active layer of permafrost in areas where patterned ground and thermokarst are present. The data gained will assist in understanding possible cold climate processes in the northern hemisphere of Mars.
In recent years, cold-climate landscapes on Earth have come to play an important role in understanding landscapes on Mars. This wo...
