Principal Investigator: Ashthorn, Heather
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2017 2015 2013 2012 2011 2009 2008 2006
Summary: The Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Society (ABEKS) uses both local and scientific knowledge to monitor and assess changes in an area that covers the range of the Porcupine Caribou Herd and nearby coastal and marine areas. Interviews with local experts are conducted annually by community researchers. Observations about fish, berries, caribou, unusual animal sightings, weather conditions, a...


Beaufort Sea Coastal and Nearshore Geoscience Research 2017
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to provide the means to improve the knowledge of physical conditions in the Arctic coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations and local residents understand mitigate and reduce the impacts of climate driven changes. Field surveys will be undertaken in consultation with Hunters and Trappers Committees (HTCs) in order to ensure the timing of ...


Yukon-Northwest Seismic Network: Characterizing Earthquakes and Earth Structures
Principal Investigator: Audet, Pascal
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are 1) to improve the detection and characterization of earthquakes occurring within the northern Canadian Cordillera (comprising the Mackenzie and Richardson Mountains) and surrounding areas, which is one the most seismically active areas of Canada; and 2) to study the deep Earth structures to understand the formation and evolution of the Cordillera. To thi...

Solar Irradiance Monitoring in Jean Marie River and Fort Providence
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011
Summary: The objective of this research project is to measure solar irradiance levels in Jean Marie River and Fort Providence, in order to support pre-feasibility studies on the use of solar energy in those communities. The project engineer will travel to Jean Marie River and Fort Providence to start monitoring solar irradiance in the two communities. The monitoring units will likely be placed on a GNW...


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...


Prairie Creek Mine - Baseline Aquatic Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wilcockson, John B
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: To collect baseline aquatic data in advance of the development of the Prairie Creek Mine. The study will be part of the Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program (AEMP) and will satisfy the requirements of the federal Environmental Effects Monitoring (EEM). The description below is a summary of the planned methodology. Most work will be carried out on Prairie Creek; however, sampling will also be con...
