The objective of this research is to determine whether permafrost thaw in the Canadian north is resulting in the release of historic radionuclides to surface waters. The results of this study will be incorporated into a larger model of radionuclide fate and transport in the Canadian north.
Field work will involve sampling surface water (triplicate 500 mL samples), groundwater seepage (triplicat...

To determine the levels of potential chemicals of concern in three major fish species through the analysis of muscle and liver samples for mercury, radionuclides and a number of elements.
Fish of three species (lake trout, lake whitefish and lake herring) will be collected in the Keith Arm of Great Bear Lake near the community of Deline. Approximately 15 trout and 10 whitefish and 10 herring wi...

A field crew of four people will map (by foot and boat) the rocks deposited in ancient (2,500 to 1,900 million year old) basins. These rocks will also be assessed for their economic potential. The field work will also involve the collection of water, moss and lichen to determine levels of contaminants as part of the northern contaminants study funded by the Arctic Environmental Strategy....
