Mackenzie Valley Landslide Geotechnical Investigations
Principal Investigator: Nichol, Susan L.
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective is to improve knowledge about landslides in the Mackenzie Valley. The results of this study will enable better environmental impact assessments and help to reduce environmental impacts related to the construction and operation of the proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline. As well, the results will have a broader application to a wide range of future development activities in the region....


Permafrost and climate change, western Arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: The researchers hope to measure ground temperatures to find out how they are changing as a result of climate change. They will try to find out how the thickness of the snow cover affects the amount of ground warming that has occurred over the past 35 years. The researchers will study the cracking of ice wedges to find out if they are cracking less now than they did in the 1970s and 1980s. The...


Understanding the Need for Novel Forms of Environmental Governance
Principal Investigator: Galbraith, Lindsay
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: This research is concerned with increasingly fractious relations between mining firms and local communities in Canada's hinterlands, and the systems of governance that aim to mediate these relations. More specifically, this research seeks to understand t...


Surficial Geology Mapping Fort Norman (96C), Blackwater Lake (96B), Mahoney Lake (96F)
Principal Investigator: Duk-Rodkin, Alejandra ADR
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: This project aims to obtain a better understanding of the sensitivity of slopes to disturbance from development, especially in the context of progressive climate warming. It will also identify baseline levels for natural and anthropogenic contaminants,...


Modified Phase II Environmental Site Assessment O-35 Wellsite
Principal Investigator: Miller, Samantha
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: The objectives of this assessment are to conduct a site investigation to evaluate potential environmental impact associated with daily facility operations associated with the O-35 wellsite. In August 2002, an Environmental Site Assessment was conducted....


Modified Phase II Environmental Site Assessment N-01 Wellsite
Principal Investigator: Miller, Samantha
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: The objectives of this assessment are to conduct a site investigation to evaluate potential environmental impact associated with daily facility operations associated with the N-01 wellsite and to set up background concentrations of parameters for the lea...


Modified Phase II-III Environmental Site Assessment F-36 Wellsite
Principal Investigator: Miller, Samantha
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002
Summary: The objectives of this assessment are to conduct a soil investigation and remediation associated with the flare stack at the Paramount Resources Ltd. F-36 Wellsite. In August 2002, a modified Phase II Environmental Site Assessment was conducted. The bas...


Canadian Arctic Plants: Systematics, Evolution and Floristics
Principal Investigator: Gillespie, Lynn J.
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2000
Summary: This research will study variation among arctic plants (bluegrasses, alkali grasses, arctic poppies, arctic mustards) to better define species so that arctic plants may be more easily identified, and to better understand the origin and evolutionary relat...


Winter Low Ground Pressure Vehicle Trials
Principal Investigator: Callow, Lin
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: The objective of these trials is to evaluate the performance of Low Ground Pressure Vehicles (LGPV) on frozen tundra without surface preparation. The effects of LGPV passage on soil, permafrost, and vegetation will be monitored and the details of each tr...


Preconstruction biophysical site assessment (wildlife, vegetation) of potential well locations and flow line options within the Significant Discovery Area, and post-construction vegetation and permafrost monitoring on the Cameron Hills Gathering System
Principal Investigator: Hong, Tom
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: A pre-construction biophysical site assessment will focus on wildlife and vegetation. The proposed well-sites will be examined on foot, and the flowlines walked to document vegetation types, including rare species if present. Main vegetation types will b...
