ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into regio...


Diavik Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program 2011
Principal Investigator: Moore, Kristin M

Summary: To revisit fixed sample stations over the course of a year in an effort to determine any seasonal variation that may exist and confirm impact predictions. The study will encompass the following water based parameters: water quality, zooplankton & phytoplankton biomass and taxonomy, benthic invertebrate analysis and sediment chemistry. This program also includes dust monitoring and fish health. ...


Biological Studies of Waters Along the Proposed Mackenzie Gas Project Pipeline Route - Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application no. 983. The objective of this study to examine lakes possibly affected by the proposed Mackenzie Gas Project pipeline, and lakes that can serve as future control/reference sites. The researchers will measure the following: nutrients and metals in lake water and sediments, lake water quality (DO, pH, conductivity, etc.), and ...

Effects of climate change on coastal geomorphology and benthic biotic communities, southwestern Banks Island
Principal Investigator: Edinger, Evan N
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: Climate change is affecting coastlines and coastal communities across Arctic Canada. Communities in the Western Arctic, including Sachs Harbour, have described a variety of effects, including warmer temperatures, reduced sea ice thickness, longer duration of open water in summer, increased wave activity, and new or early arrivals of migratory animals. These effects can have a variety of impacts ...


Environmental Surveys for the Fortune Minerals NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Goad, Robin E
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Fortune Minerals is considering an expanded exploration program on the NICO property, which will include building an all-weather access road. This program will require environmental baseline surveys to augment existing information on species and habitat...
