Soil microarthropod community responses to climate change
Principal Investigator: Turnbull, Matthew S
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The goal of the principal investigator is to assess the diversity of species and functional traits of microarthropods in the Canadian arctic. The Canada Tundra Ecosystem Carbon Study (CTECS) was selected as a research site because there have been running temperature, moisture, and nutrient addition treatments since 2004 with the goal of simulating climate change and predicting its effects on plant...


Environmental Baseline Studies, Tamerlane Ventures Inc., Pine Point Mining Project
Principal Investigator: Moore, Steve M
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective of the field program is to document baseline conditions within the study area to be used for a water licence and land use application towards development of a lead and zinc mine adjacent to the old Pine Point property. This includes completing Ecosystem Classification, Surface Water Quality Sampling, Fish Habitat Assessments, and a Wildlife Utilization and Diversity Study. Field s...


Population abundance and vital rates of fish harvested from lakes along the Mackenzie Valley pipeline route – Loon Lake 2005
Principal Investigator: Toyne, Melanie J
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: The proposed Mackenzie natural gas pipeline route crosses Loon River, which connects Loon Lake to the Mackenzie River. It is important to collect information on fish species in Loon Lake to compared with after the proposed pipeline is built to determine if any changes have occured. All field crew transported to Loon Lake via North-Wright twin otter floatplane. Crew will set nets to catch fish an...


Fisheries Studies For 2002 Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Landry, Francois
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: The field work is intended to provide baseline fisheries data for four lakes (Horseshoe, Toss, Fay and Logan) and to obtain post-baseline fisheries data on eight lakes (Vulture, Kodiak, Nema, Cujo, Nanuq, Counts, and Slipper) within the Ekati claimblock...


Baseline Limnology Program, Kennady Lake 2001 Environmental Program
Principal Investigator: Lawson, Nick
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The objectives of the research team are to collect baseline environmental information on the DeBeers Canada Exploration Ltd. project at Kennady Lake, to assist with the current environmental management of the property and prepare for an assessment of the environmental effects of potential future development of the site. Three field visits to Kennady Lake will be completed during the summer of 200...


Preliminary Reconnaissance of Wildlife and Vegetation of the Proposed Sahyoue/Edacho National Historic Park, Edacho Portion, Great Bear Lake, NT.
Principal Investigator: Moore, Steve M
Licenced Year(s): 2002 2001 2000
Summary: This study will gather baseline information on wildlife and vegetation to help fulfill step 5 of the protected areas strategy process. Two people (Steve Moore and one guide from Deline) will travel by boat from Deline to Edacho Peninsula and spend six days collecting baseline information on wildlife and ecosystem units. Thirty-six sites will be assessed and classified to ecosystem type. For eac...


Post-fire decomposition of woody material and post-fire habitat structures in the western Canadian boreal forest.
Principal Investigator: Sander, Barbara
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: Burned areas of different ages have been identified from fire-history maps and data bases provided by the Forest Management Division of the NWT in Fort Smith. Chosen fires are located along the Highways 1, 2 and 5. Access and transportation will therefore be by car/truck. The exact location of the sites will be documented by using GPS-equipment. A total of three sites (Jack Pine, Black Spruce ...


Permo-Triassic Vertebrates from Axel Heiberg and Ellesmere Islands, Northwest Territories.
Principal Investigator: Gardner, James D.
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: The researcher will examine the following geological localities and units: Sabine Bay (Permian) and Heiberg (Triassic) formations, northern Axel Heiberg Island and Blind Fiord, Blaa Mountain, and Heiberg and Sabine Bay and Svartevaeg formations, east- central Ellesmere Island. At each fossil site the researcher will record relevant stratigraphic and sedimentological information and collect repres...


Environmental Monitoring Study - Lupin Mine
Principal Investigator: d'Entremont, Andre
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: A sampling program will be undertaken where sediment and benthic organisms will be collected at six sites sampled in 1985. The samples will be analysed to determine if any statistically significant changes in the sediment chemistry and species diversity and abundance have occurred since the mine began operation in 1985....


The Creation and Utilization of an Artifical Reef in the Churchill Region
Principal Investigator: Thornton, Sheila
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher will create an artifical reef in the Churchill region and develop an arctic ecosystem study site. She will create a species inventory which will involve benthic sampling using SCUBA gear. Species include benthic marine invertebrates, fish and pelagic invertebrates found in 0-20 metres of water....
