Principal Investigator:Bharadwaj, Lalita A Licenced Year(s):
In collaboration with the Slave River and Delta Partnership (SRDP) and local communities, the research team will develop a Community Based Monitoring (CBM) program titled the Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program (SWEEP), to empower communities to collect, interpret and use a system of environmental indicators to address these priorities. The focus will be on indicators of cumulative effec...

Four objectives guide this research: 1) to gain an understanding of the current water resource conditions (e.g., quality and quantity) and contextual circumstances (e.g., community culture, history, traditions) impacting local water use in the Deh Cho Region of the NWT; 2) to use a social well-being lens to unpack values that people associate with water resources in the Region; 3) to translate the...
Principal Investigator:Borowitz, Michelle A Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this study are to:
- conduct collaborative research that respects Aboriginal knowledge and acknowledges that knowledge is specific to a community and its traditional territory, and that each community has their unique way to deal with issues, its unique responses, and its unique way of understanding;
- disseminate Aboriginal knowledge that represents Aboriginals themselves and ...

The Research team proposes to examine the sources of wood within the Mackenzie River drainage, transport of wood toward the Arctic Ocean, and the potential implications of global warming for wood recruitment and transport. The primary objectives are to (i) evaluate fundamental controls on wood dynamics within the Mackenzie and (ii) develop an empirical predictive model to estimate future wood dyna...

The objectives of this project are:
a) to take an inventory of historical and ecological/environmental resources in the area;
b) to identify past, present and future uses of the area by community residents;
c) to identify potential impacts from use of land within the land use area; and
d) to provide follow-up mechanism for on-going communication of issues identified.
The principal researche...

The goals of this research project are to increase the geoscience knowledge of the NWT, particularly around Norman Wells and Tulita, and in the surrounding mountains, to provide public geoscience information to all stakeholders through the production of bedrock geology maps and related reports on petroleum potential, and to encourage new and more effective exploration for oil and gas that will lea...
Principal Investigator:Rainbird, Robert H Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the project is to better understand the geology of the region through collection and analysis of rock specimens and regional geological mapping. This year the researchers would like to collect hand specimens of rocks for future studies and to look for areas where more detailed studies can be done in the future. Understanding the geology will help geologists map the area, assist m...

The major issues in the interaction of indigenous peoples and industrial corporations are the right of aboriginal peoples to natural resources, and aboriginal participation and co-management of these resources. These issues generate heated discussion on all levels of power, and acquire the character of conflict in everyday life. Lack of understanding about other parties’ intentions precludes engag...
