Principal Investigator:Walker, Tony R Licenced Year(s):2005
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...
Principal Investigator:McEachern, Laurie Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Marsh, Philip Licenced Year(s):200520042003
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...
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...

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...
Principal Investigator:Evans, Marlene Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Miller, Raoul Licenced Year(s):
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....
Principal Investigator:Anderson, John C. Licenced Year(s):
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....
