Akaitcho - DUC Wetland Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Richard, Alain
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The main objective of this project is to develop wetland inventory for south eastern Northwest Territories (NWT) that will be used to provide a baseline for many kinds of planning (including land use planning processes) and research in support of biodiversity conservation and sustainable management of habitat. Specific objectives are to: 1) develop and use computer-based methods to produce we...


Mapping Knowledge in the Sahtú Region
Principal Investigator: Simmons, Deb
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: This project includes five linked components. 1. Finalizing and contextualizing the Sahtú Settlement Harvest Study and assessing future harvest monitoring possibilities with community workshops. Engagement with harvesters in workshops will address the potential of harvest monitoring as a tool for community empowerment in wildlife management and to support and maintain the traditional economy. 2...


Mineralogy, Geochemistry, and Fluid Inclusions of the Caribou Lake Layered Mafic-Ultramafic Intrusion
Principal Investigator: Neyedley, Kevin
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The purpose of the study is to examine the rocks near Blachford lake lodge to gain a better understanding of how they formed and why there are there. Initial mapping has shown that they are unusual with more iron and nickel in them than would be normally expected and we would like to look at them to better understand their history. There have been exploration companies interested in these rocks an...


Establishing a watershed framework for assessing cumulative impacts of development
Principal Investigator: Chin, Krista
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: Objective 1: Build a partnership between government, communities, regulators and researchers to develop a watershed-based cumulative impact study in areas of oil and gas exploration in the Sahtu region. The Sahtu Renewable Resource Board (SRRB) can play an important coordinating role in bringing partners together and working with the communities to determine appropriate engagement in the projec...


Inuit travels in contemporary times
Principal Investigator: Collignon, Beatrice M.
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The main goal of this project is to gather data about how much Ulukhaktuurmiut do travel outside of their area and to understand how they feel about travelling to other lands and places, in order to: 1- Acknowledge the fact that travelling is as important today as it was in the past. People still travel a lot on the land, to familiar places, but also travel to other lands and places. One outcom...


A Multi-scale Assessment of Cumulative Impacts in the Northern Mackenzie Basin
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: This project has three main objectives: Objective 1: To use satellite imagery (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, etc.) to document the rate and extent of landscape change (slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, etc.) in the northern Mackenzie Basin. To quantify landscape disturbances and vegetation regeneration patterns since 1985 Landsat satellite images will be obtained, that will provide refle...


Using Inuvialuit and Gwich'in observations to monitor environmental change in the Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011
Summary: The core objective of this research is to work with Inuvialuit and Gwich’in experts to document and share local observations of environmental conditions. Over time this will build a record of observations, against which future changes can be compared. To document local observations this research will employ methods including participatory photo-mapping, participatory-video, web-based mapping, ph...


The cumulative impacts of rapid environmental change in the northwestern NWT: Investigating the impacts of mega-slump disturbances on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in the lower Peel watershed, NW
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a multidisciplinary project involving communities, governments and academic researchers. The goals are to : 1) inventory and track broad scale changes in landscape disturbances; 2) determine the impacts of natural and anthropogenic disturbances on the physical and chemical characteristics and ecology of streams and rivers; 3) determine disturbance thresholds relevant to the health of strea...


South Rae, NWT Aeromagnetic Survey
Principal Investigator: Miles, Warner F.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011
Summary: The objective of this airborne survey is to acquire high-resolution aeromagnetic data. Aeromagnetic surveys measure magnetic properties of bedrock and are one of the tools used in geological mapping. The bedrock may contain mineral deposits, such as gold, copper, lead, zinc, and diamonds. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist mineral exploration activities , and provi...


Geology of the Redstone Copperbelt
Principal Investigator: Milton, Jack E
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of this research project is to further the knowledge of the geology of the Redstone Copperbelt - an area of copper deposits within the Mackenzie Mountains. This will lead to a clearer understanding of the science behind the formation of copper deposits. This information can be utilized by environmental and exploration companies to provide baseline data on the distribution of copper ...
