Anticancer Agents from Microorganisms
Principal Investigator: Pettit, George
Licenced Year(s): 1999 1995
Summary: The overall goal of this project is to collect a variety of soil samples from easily accessed locations in the NWT. Small soil and mud samples will be taken along NWT highways 1,3, and 7 during the late summer. All travel will be on highways, with actual collections made on foot. Soil samples will consist of only a few grams of material at each location. The samples will be taken to the University...

Study of bio-indicators of environmental change in arctic lakes
Principal Investigator: Smol, John P
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers plan to take samples of lake water and lake sediments from a variety of sites in the region. From these samples, information will be collected about the water chemistry, microscopic organisms present in the lakes, and changes in the region's past environmental and climatic conditions....

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...

Licence #2447
Principal Investigator: Stich, H.F.
Licenced Year(s): 1979
Summary: To collect samples of sediments, muds and small organisms for subsequent laboratory analysis to determine the geographic distribution and occurrence of cancer causing substances in Arctic waters. The purpose of the study is to find out if there is a possible health hazard to animals and local populations....

Licence #1864
Principal Investigator: Terasmae, J.
Licenced Year(s): 1975
Summary: The study of fossils, microscopic organisms, and fragments in sediments to construct enrivonmental changes that have occurred since the last glaciation....
