Mackenzie Mountains bedrock mapping and stratigraphic studies
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this research is to improve the public understanding of bedrock geology of two regions of the Mackenzie Mountains, including folding and faulting, stratigraphic relationships, tectonic history, and economic mineralogy. This objective includes sharing geoscience information with all interested parties through the production and publication of bedrock geology maps and reports on the...


Pine Point Rail Bed - Traditional Knowledge and Users' Survey
Principal Investigator: Milley, Christopher
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to gain information that will be used to produce a Traditional Knowledge and Users' report specific to the area within the Pine Point Rail Bed site boundaries and address information gaps in traditional land use and recreational use of First Nations, Métis and local site users. Primary data collection will seek to identify and describe communities and organizat...


Natural resource development, privatized aid, and sport for development in Canada
Principal Investigator: Giles, Audrey R.
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: There are three key objectives to this research: First, to investigate how the politics of privatized aid provided by the extractives sector shape sport for development (SFD) initiatives in Canada; second, to examine the benefits and challenges involved in new partnerships between the private companies that fund SFD initiatives, the non-profit organizations (NPOs) that deliver them, and the commun...


SWEEP - The Slave Watershed Environmental Effects Program
Principal Investigator: Bharadwaj, Lalita A
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: 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...


Water and Social Well-being in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Carter, Blair
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: 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...


Dene-water Relations and Hydroelectric Dams: Confluence and Contestations in the Mackenzie River Basin
Principal Investigator: Borowitz, Michelle A
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: 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 ...


Big river wood dynamics in the Canadian subarctic
Principal Investigator: Anderson, Natalie K
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012
Summary: 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...

Geological Fieldwork in Mackenzie Plain and Adjacent Mountains
Principal Investigator: MacNaughton, Robert B.
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: 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...


Geology and Resource Potential of Northwest Victoria Island
Principal Investigator: Rainbird, Robert H
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: 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...
