The objective of this research project is to describe and document local people’s experiences and perspectives of oil and gas development in the context of past and present industry activity and traditional knowledge. This research seeks to understand and demonstrate the complexity of Tulít’a peoples relationships with the land and with industry. What are the experiences of local people, how does ...

The project the principal researcher will be undertaking in Deline, NWT, is part of a dissertation, which examines how the Deline Dene's assessments of the risks of uranium mining on Great Bear Lake proliferated from the geographical and political margins to the center, prompting public and official responses. As the source of these environmental risk assessments is the oral histories of the Delin...

The principal researcher wishes to study the environmental impacts of resources extraction projects (present and future) on the community members. The hope is to do this through a survey of their perceptions of environmental problems caused by resources extraction projects (gas & oil) and see whether they think that these projects will create more problems of environmental degradation (for example...

The objective of this research is to acquire well test data to characterize the properties and concentration of gas hydrates at Mallik. Researchers will collect samples, conduct ground temperature monitoring to evaluate the geothermal regimes controlling gas hydrate stability, and integrate data to better understand gas hydrates in permafrost environments and their potential as a future energy res...

This study will determine if satellite radar measurement can be used to monitor the natural trend in surface movement in the Mackenzie Delta and the effects of gas extraction in the production leases. The fieldwork will be based near Reindeer Station and...
Principal Investigator:Tait, Matthew P. Licenced Year(s):
Oil and gas extraction in permafrost areas causes vertical surface displacements that have in the past caused serious environmental issues, such as massive subsidence and land slides. Methods of monitoring such vertical subsidence are accurate, but rely...
Principal Investigator:Morgan, James P. Licenced Year(s):
Mr. Morgan will produce maps showing the location and characteristics of economic mineral occurences and objects such as drill holes and trenches. These will be cross-indexed to published reports on economic geology....
