The research goal is to determine whether the same genes control similar skeletal change in different populations and species. Stickleback fish are ideal subjects for this study because different freshwater populations show morphological differences in s...

Southern Bear project area is centred approximately 300 km north-northwest of Yellowknife. Geological data on the area is sparse; the geology of the area is poorly understood and no modern geoscience data sets are available. This mapping project will d...

The geology of the Wecho River project area, approximately 100 km north-north-west of Yellowknife, is poorly understood and no modern geoscience data-sets are available. This mapping project will define geological characteristics of the area and provide...
Principal Investigator:Gillespie, Lynn J. Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Eschenroder, Randy Licenced Year(s):
The immediate objective of the research is to determine whether unique morphotypes of lake trout exist in Great Slave Lake. The long term objective is to determine the distribution and ecology of unique morphotypes in North America. By studying Great Sla...

The researchers will sample 200-300 forest stands in Wood Buffalo National Park and surrounding areas as well as in the Fort Simpson area. A number of measurements will be taken in each site as well as soil cores and sections of decomposing logs and snages. These will be taken to the U. of A. for analysis. In addition, sediment cores will be taken in lake sediment and/or peatlands for stratigra...
Principal Investigator:Yamashita, Akira Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will observe crystal formation from ice fog through the collection of samples for microscopic observation and through the taking of photographs/video of optical phenomena produced by floating ice crystals. Particle counting and cloud condensation nucleus counting at the observation site will also be done....
Principal Investigator:Babaluk, John Licenced Year(s):
This is a continuing project to survey fish populations of lakes and rivers. In the past population studies have been conducted in the Fish and Raddi lakes, the Sachs River and the Benard River. This year Middle and Kuptan lakes will be surveyed and if there is time Capron and Swan lakes may also be surveyed. The project will also continue studies on genetic and morphological variation in Arcti...
Principal Investigator:Brooks, Greg Licenced Year(s):
If an oil and gas pipeline is constructed that extends from the Mackenzie Delta to the south, the pipeline will likely cross the East Channel at either Lousy or Swimming Points. Both of these sites have been studied in the past, but little detailed information has been collected on the physical features of these sites. Data will be collected on the features of these sites, including a survey of ...
Principal Investigator:Bell, Trevor Licenced Year(s):
This study will provide a better understanding of permafrost conditions in the high arctic as well as the environmental conditions that lead to permafrost formation. Study sites include the Fosheim Peninsula on Ellesmere Island and May Point and Mokka Fiord on eastern Axel Heiberg Island....
