Principal Investigator:Turnbull, Matthew S Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Moore, Steve M Licenced Year(s):
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.
Principal Investigator:Toyne, Melanie J Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Landry, Francois Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Lawson, Nick Licenced Year(s):
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...

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...
Principal Investigator:Sander, Barbara Licenced Year(s):
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 ...
Principal Investigator:Gardner, James D. Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:d'Entremont, Andre Licenced Year(s):1991
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....
Principal Investigator:Thornton, Sheila Licenced Year(s):
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....
