Winter Flow Regime and Icing Dynamics of Tundra Streams near the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway
Principal Investigator: Ensom, Timothy P
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The overarching objective of this study is to integrate light detection and ranging (LiDAR), passive spectral, and tree ecophysiological data to link biophysical structure to ecological function in the Forest Tundra Ecotone. In so doing, the research team will be able to remotely assess the vulnerability and resilience of the forest tundra ecotone (FTE) to environmental change. The field work w...


City of Yellowknife Gold Project
Principal Investigator: Campbell, Joseph W
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: Follow-up on exploration activity associated with theMackenzie Valley Land and Water Board land use permit MV2014C0005 on Terrax Minerals Inc. City of Yellowknife Gold Project. Work would include initial environmental baseline work, and expansion of research programs to establish sufficient study for possible future Environmental Impact Assessment of potential mine development if exploration activ...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué 2014 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Kramers, Patrick
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies is to continue to describe the existing environment, and obtain information once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects. The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, hydrology, geochemistry, vegetation, soil, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources data and wildlife occurrence. These study ...


Planning and Collection of Data on Boreal Wildfire Effects: Studies of broad-scale 2014 Wildfires in NWT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Bourgeau-Chavez, Laura L
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The goal of this project is to identify and collect remote sensing and field data to support the science necessary to investigate the impacts and consequences of the 2014-15 wildfires in Northwest Territories, Canada and to better understand the vulnerability of the Carbon-rich boreal peatlands to burning. Field crews will navigate to pre-selected sample locations and collect at each location: ...


Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2013 2011 2010
Summary: The 2016 Limited Site Investigations may include a Site reconnaissance to assess Site conditions, conduct maintenance, obtain water samples to determine water resources for the planned 2017 temporary camp, install a weather station, and obtain environmental soil and water samples as potentially required by regulators. The objectives of the Site Remediation Program are to: 1) remove and dispose ...


Understanding regional variability in soil geochemistry in an area impacted by legacy industrial activity
Principal Investigator: Oliver, Jonathon
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The specific objectives of this research are: 1) to investigate concentrations of arsenic and other elements in regional soils to gain a better understanding of regional baseline soil geochemistry; 2) to determine speciation of arsenic in selected soils from the region with elevated concentrations to determine whether arsenic in soils is from a natural geologic source or is derived from past indus...


Landscape Change on Banks Island.
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) To use remote sensing to document the rate and extent of landscape change on Banks Island; 2) To examine the effects of tundra disturbances using detailed field investigations; and 3) Use participatory mapping and interviews to document Inuvialuit Knowledge of Landscape Change on Banks Island. In this project the research team are using remot...


Thermal State of Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Siegfried, Dian
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to continue an ongoing long-term monitoring of permafrost temperatures on Banks Island and Mould Bay. At these sites the research team have lost remote (satellite) communication and need to make repairs to continue receiving data. The research team are currently monitoring active layer and permafrost temperatures, active layer soil moisture, air temperature, and...


Impacts and remediation of wetland vegetation affected by development in Northern Areas
Principal Investigator: Stevens, Kevin J
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The overall goals are to 1) quantify the effects of mining and development on northern wetland vegetation through the application of historic vegetation ecology practices and the development of novel approaches to quantify and monitor the effects of mining and other development related disturbances on wetland vegetation; 2) improve methods for assessing the success of wetland restoration/remediati...


Organic carbon accumulation under Picea sp. (Picea glauca, P. mariana) stands along its range northern boundary
Principal Investigator: Pichler, Viliam
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective of this study is to determine soil organic carbon quantity and quality under open stands of Picea glauca and Picea mariana close to northern forest limits as opposed to open tundra. To enable predictions of forest propagation on soil carbon dynamics under extreme climate conditions. Taking samples from the soil and trees in the Richardson Mts., specifically at two points with the...
