Study of potential environmental impacts of waste materials in the marine waters near Cambridge Bay
Principal Investigator: Johnston, Laura
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: Samples of sediment, water and different marine species such as fish, marine invertebrates (including sea urchins, clams and crabs), and microscopic organisms will be collected by divers from the underwater dumpsite in Cambridge Bay. These samples will be assessed for contaminants such as heavy metals and PCB's. The study is primarily being conducted to determine if the waste materials of the du...

Spatial Variation and Scale in Terrestrial and Marine Inorganic and Organic Substance Distributions
Principal Investigator: Reimer, K.J.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The research team will collect bottom-dwelling marine organisms and sediment to examine how materials introduced locally and from distant sources distribute themselves in the marine environment, to understand the potential for adverse effects and the likely persistence of such materials in the future. As well, they will collect soil and plant samples to understand the potential for impact and per...
