Diavik Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program 2011
Principal Investigator: Moore, Kristin M
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: To revisit fixed sample stations over the course of a year in an effort to determine any seasonal variation that may exist and confirm impact predictions. The study will encompass the following water based parameters: water quality, zooplankton & phytoplankton biomass and taxonomy, benthic invertebrate analysis and sediment chemistry. This program also includes dust monitoring and fish health. ...


Ajurak 2009 Field Data Collection Program Continuation
Principal Investigator: Hawkins, James R
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2009
Summary: Imperial Oil Resources Ventures Limited (Imperial) is planning to conduct the program on, and near, Exploration Licence 446 (Ajurak) in the Canadian sector of the Beaufort Sea. The 2009 Ajurak Field Collection Program (the program) will begin in July 2009, and is scheduled to be completed in March 2010. However if ice and weather conditions are difficult, or the required support vessels cannot be ...


ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...


Ajurak Bioacoustics Bowhead Whale Research Program
Principal Investigator: McCrimmon, Glen
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: This licence was issued for scientific research application #872. The primary objectives of this research are: 1) to test the feasibility of using bioacoustic technology to collect baseline data on Bowhead whale utilization of the Ajurak EL and a control site(s) in the Canadian Beaufort; 2) to evaluate cost-effectiveness, statistical robustness, and safety benefits of this approach versus addit...


Temporal trends and spatial variations in persistent organic pollutants and metals in sea-run char from the Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: This is a study investigating the contaminant levels in sea-run Arctic char as they return from feeding in the ocean. The aim of this study is to provide communities with more information on the chemical levels in these fish. By making these chemical measurements in char and comparing them with chemical levels in marine mammals, there would be a possibility to demonstrate that char is a good food ...


Past climate change and carbon cycle in the Arctic region
Principal Investigator: Takizawa, Takatoshi
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: During the last glacial maximum (LGM), the sea level was lowered by ~125m. After the LGM, the area of Bering, Chukchi, and Beaufort Seas expanded dramatically, in association with the rapid raising of the sea level due to the collapse of the continental glacier, and the nutrient rich Pacific water stream into Chukchi Sea had become stronger than that of during the LGM. The abrupt rise of sea level...


Environmental screening and review of a proposed marina
Principal Investigator: Hubert, Ben
Licenced Year(s): 1995
Summary: A standard sein net will be drawn through the shallows of two small bays proposed for marina development. Fish will be collected, preserved and identified....


Baffin Bowhead Monitoring Station, Igalirtuuq.
Principal Investigator: Finley, K.J.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The study will be conducted from the permanent station on Nipple Hill at Nuvuktiapik. Surveyor instruments will be used to document whale numbers and their feeding behavior in Aqvik and Kater Valleys. The research team will attach as many as four radio tags in order to learn more about the feeding behavior and depth that the whales are feeding at. The team will also photograph the whales and us...


Behavioural and Physiological Studies of Belgua Whales and Narwhal in the High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Smith, Thomas
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: This is an ongoing study since 1973 and has described the population size and behaviour of belugas. UHF tagged animals have outlined the migratory routes and seasonal movements of the whales. The researcher is now using newly designed tags which are linked by satellite to relay position, dive duration and depth and heart rate of the whales....


Abundance and Distribution of Bowhead Whales in Foxe Basin
Principal Investigator: Cosens, Sue
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: The researcher will make daily flights from Igloolik to look for bowheads. The researcher will estimate the relative abundance, assess stock status and describe the spring distribution and movements of the bowheads in Foxe Basin. The researcher will also locate a study site where a hydrophone array could be set up to count migrating bowheads in future years....
