Summary: The objective of the fieldwork is to further assess the non-renewable resource potential of the Edacho area, as a follow-up to Phase I work which was a review of existing data. This assessment is being carried out as part of the Northwest Territories Pro...


Using Tree Rings and Lake Sediment to Reconstruct Streamflow and Climate in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Lamoureux, Scott F
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The objective of the research is to supplement and extend instrumental climatological and hydrological records in the NWT using dendrochronology (tree-ring) and varved lake sediment analysis. Transportation to the site will be by charter aircraft from Fo...


The Use of Sediment Data as an Indicator of Aquatic Ecosystem Health in the Coppermine River Basin, NWT
Principal Investigator: Peramaki, Liisa
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: This study will investigate the quality of aquatic sediment and evaluate its potential as an indicator of ecosystem health in the Coppermine River basin. Sediment cores will be collected by boat or float plane at Lac de Gras and Point Lake. The following field measurements will be recorded: water temperature and pH, and sediment colour, texture and pH. In addition, personal interviews will be c...


Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The long-term goal of this research is to develop a model of the interacting biogeochemical and hydrologic processes that control the nutrient balance and primary productivity of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta region, and ultimately, a more general model for lakes associated with the flood plains and deltas of major world rivers. Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre will consist of field and lab...


Coastal Impacts of Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steve
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to map the coastline of the Canadian Beaufort Sea in terms of its sensitivity to coastal erosion and monitor changes in the coastline, and to collect information on the morphology of the coast and the sediments which compose it for use in developing and calibrating predictive models of coastal change. In order to achieve these objectives previously proven ...


Snare River Aqautic Study
Principal Investigator: Grabke, Dan
Licenced Year(s): 2000
Summary: In 1999, the Northwest Territories Power Corporation was awarded a 25 year water licence to operate its three hydroelectric plants on the Snare River. Conditions of this water licence included that two studies be done by the Corporation. The first study is an assessment addressing the removal of minimum flow requirements on two of the dams. This study will include a current assessment of fish a...
