Using the past to inform the future: A paleoecological perspective of the impacts of drought and fire on lakes, permafrost and forests
Principal Investigator: Pisaric, Michael FJ
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this research are to examine the frequency and severity of past wildfire and drought (drought-like) conditions in the southern Northwest Territories. Specifically, the research team will examine the following questions: 1) how frequent and severe have fires been in the past; 2) are fires becoming more frequent/severe due to the impacts of climate change; 3) what impact does wildf...


Assessing regulators' information needs to make decisions regarding cumulative effects under the MVRMA
Principal Investigator: Noble, Bram F
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: This project will determine what information regulators require about cumulative effects or conditions in order to make informed decisions regarding development impacts to water quality in the NWT, and whether and how that information is, or can be, provided through NWT Cumulative Impacts Monitoring Program (CIMP) or other agencies responsible for monitoring. The objectives are as follows: 1) T...


Discovery Mine (NWT) Year-10 Long-Term Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Montgomery, Shelagh
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The Discovery Mine long term monitoring (LTM) program has as its primary objective to verify the effectiveness of remedial measures at the site. This will be accomplished via a Geotechnical Monitoring and Visual Inspection; Terrestrial Environment Monitoring; Water Quality Monitoring, and Aquatic (fish) Monitoring. As part of the Phase II LTM for the Discovery Mine site, the program addresses i...


Taltson Hydroelectric Facility Aquatic Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Miller, Matthew
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of the monitoring and mitigation is to determine operating procedures and mitigation options for the annual shutdown at Taltson Hydroelectric Facility to minimize the environmental impact on downstream Trudel Creek. Various mitigation options have been and are being assessed and the results on Trudel Creek are being monitored to determine the best operating procedure for the annu...


Environmental Baseline Surveys for the Fortune Minerals Limited NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Schryer, Rick P.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this project is to complete the fish contaminants, benthic and fall water quality programs in the Marian River as detailed in the Supplemental Baseline Monitoring Plan. Water samples for laboratory analysis will be collected at least 15 cm below the water surface by hand directly into the sample bottles (EC 2012). Sample bottles and caps will be triple rinsed prior to water col...


Baseline monitoring of marine productivity and oceanography spanning the Northwest Passage using ships of opportunity
Principal Investigator: Fisher, Jonathan AD
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The first objective is to collect, analyze and report the findings from station-based and continuous plankton sampling and data on depth, temperature and salinity in the upper water column throughout Canada’s Northwest Passage. As a contributor to marine climate change research, this program will provide northern communities with the first regional-scale view of marine productivity—thereby providi...


Remediation of the Abandoned Panarctic Satellite F-68 Wellsite at Satellite Bay, Prince Patrick Island, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2011 2010
Summary: The 2016 Limited Site Investigations may include a Site reconnaissance to assess Site conditions, conduct maintenance, obtain water samples to determine water resources for the planned 2017 temporary camp, install a weather station, and obtain environmental soil and water samples as potentially required by regulators. The objectives of the Site Remediation Program are to: 1) remove and dispose ...


Diavik Aquatics Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The objective of this project is to revisit fixed sample stations at near-field, mid-field and far-field sites over the course of the year in an effort to determine any seasonal variation that may exist and confirm impact predictions. The AEMP Version 3.5 will consist of the following components: Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Dust Deposition; Effluent and Water Chemistry; Indicators of Eut...


Marine Arctic Ecosystem Study (MARES)
Principal Investigator: Wiese, Francis
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management issued a request for a program during the 2016 field season to accomplish the following objectives: • Collect physical, biological and chemical observations in the Eastern Beaufort Sea from moored and moving platforms; • Describe and analyze physical, biological and chemical observations acquired from the moving platforms; and • Gather water and sediment s...


Understanding the potential impact of rare earth elements in aquatic systems in the NWT
Principal Investigator: McGeer, Jim
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The objectives of this research are to evaluate the relative sensitivity of northern aquatic invertebrates and northern ecosystems in comparison to southern species and environments. The focus of comparisons is in relation to the toxicity of rare earth elements. Approximately 3 to 5 sites will be chosen for detailed samplings and examples could include (Pontoon Lake, Trappers Lake and Tibbitt L...
