Particle Dynamics on the Mackenzie Shelf (CASES subproject) and Arctic River Delta Experiment (ARDEX)
Principal Investigator: Walker, Tony R
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The Beaufort Sea shelf is very shallow and the Mackenzie River, which sends freshwater, nutrients, and particles onto the shelf, may have a large influence on its productivity. The main aim of this project is to determine the change in flocculation, part...


Gahcho Kue (Kennady Lake) Baseline Limnology Program (2003)
Principal Investigator: McEachern, Laurie
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002
Summary: To assist with current environmental management of the Kennady Lake or Gahcho Kue Project (an advanced mineral exploration property operated by DeBeers Canada Exploration Inc.), and to prepare for an assessment of environmental effects of potential futur...


Snow Accumulation/Runoff in High Latitude Permafrost Basins
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to develop improved understanding of the fluxes of water and energy in northern regions, and to develop improved computer models of these processes. The Trail Valley Creek site will be accessed by helicopter and s...


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...


Biochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers will be focused on two locations. At the Havik Pak Creek site, research will involve examining the chemistry of streamwater and the chemistry of lakes within selected sub-basins during the snowmelt period. At the NRC Lake and South Lake site, the research will involve measuring how well algae communities are able to grow when they experience concentrations of suspended sediments o...


Influence of the Slave River on Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The Researchers will collect a series of sediment and water samples. These will be analyzed for plant nutrients, concentration of microscopic plant cells, bacteria, suspended solids, dissolved oxygen and organic contaminants. Microscopic animals will also be netted. They will determine the abundance and composition of the animals and conduct experiments to measure their feeding rates and fat cont...


Investigation of Contemporary Sedimentation Patterns in Small Lake Basins, Baffin Island, N.W.T., Canada
Principal Investigator: Miller, Raoul
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: Mr. Miller and Mark Abbott will take water samples and cores from the sediment at the bottom of several lakes on Laird and Becher Peninsulas, Baffin Island. The purpose of the sample collection is to find out about past climate of the area and also to see what impacts human activity in the Arctic might have on these lakes....


Licence #2276
Principal Investigator: Anderson, John C.
Licenced Year(s): 1978
Summary: 1. To conduct hydrologic studies with regard to highway construction. Measurements of pre-melt snow, ice covers, snow melt, rainfall, stream discharge, suspended sediment concentrations and water temperature in rivers will be taken. 2. Some aerial and road based reconnaissance will also be undertaken....
