The objective of the study is to collect baseline fish and fish habitat information to provide an initial assessment of instream flow needs, and potential negative impacts to fish in the portion of the La Martre River affected by proposed the Nailii hydro project.
Fish sampling will be conducted to be appropriate for the fish communities and life stages present. All captured fish will be enumer...

The objective of this study is to determine whether a deep-water type of lake trout resembling the “humper” of Lake Superior lives on offshore reefs in Great Slave Lake, as they do in Lake Superior. The researchers have also found humper-like trout in Great Bear Lake and in Lake Mistassini, Quebec. In Great Slave Lake, the researchers intend to target offshore reefs surrounded by deep water (deepe...

Shell Canada Limited will be surveying the river bottom to see if it is practical to use a barge-mounted gas conditioning facility at the Niglintgak Gas Field in the Mackenzie Delta. The researchers will do a bathymetric survey to identify locations that are not wide enough and/or deep enough for barge passage. Bathymetry is the science of measuring water depths and showing the variations in dep...
Principal Investigator:Kennedy, Dean Licenced Year(s):
In order to determine the navigational capabilities of the Liard River, WesternGeco will conduct a bathymetric study to record water depths along the course of the Liard River, from the confluence at the Mackenzie River to the British Columbia / Northwes...
Principal Investigator:Jalkotzy, Peter Licenced Year(s):2001
The research team will conduct a lake and fish habitat survey, to identify which water bodies have the following characteristics: overwintering fish, lake depths greater than 3.5 feet and water quality conditions which are not suitable for overwintering fish. The research team will consist of 3 crews, 4 men/crew. Crews will receive their safety and sampling orientation in Tuktoyaktuk Harbour at ...
Principal Investigator:Koudys, Al Licenced Year(s):
In the second year of a 4-5 year project, the researchers will continue to collect water depth and gravity measurements in the Dease Strait and Coronatio Gulf. Helicopters will land at pre-determined sites on the ice to collect the data. Another helicopter will collect similar data but using an airborne electromagnetic technique. The airborne technique involves towing a device (9 metres long) u...

The researcher will continue to collect samples of ground ice and measure temperatures in lakes and ponds. This information is used to help understand how the ground heaves as it freezes in winter, and to determine the extent of soil settlement during thaw in summer. The information about lakes is used to help understand the relations between water depths and temperatures beneath the lake....
Principal Investigator:Vosburgh, Jim A. Licenced Year(s):
A aerial survey of Icebreaker Channel and the surrounding waters will be conducted in order to collect measurements that will be useful in determining a safe shipping zone. A bathymetry will be used to take measurements of water depth. This device is mounted to an aircraft; this aircraft then flies over the areas of interest to collect water depth information. This type of data collection has b...
Principal Investigator:Lusk, Barry M. Licenced Year(s):1994
Upon arrival in Dolphin and Union Strait, the surveyors will leave the mothership on smaller vessels in order to measure the depths of water in the Strait and determine the position of the shoreline and other geographical features. These measurements will be used to construct nautical charts or maps of the area. Similar activities will be conducted in the Coronation Gulf and Ice Breaker Channel ...
Principal Investigator:Dixon, O.A. Licenced Year(s):
In the Arctic Islands, we are studying rocks and the fossils found within these rocks that were formed more than 400 million years ago in warm tropical seas. This study is expected to help in describing the temperatures, climate and water depths of these ancient seas. We are also studying the types of fossil corals and sponge-like animals that are not present in our seas today....
