Principal Investigator:Miller, Matthew Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Schryer, Rick P. Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Fisher, Jonathan AD Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Krizan, Julia Licenced Year(s):
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 ...
Principal Investigator:Noble, Bram F Licenced Year(s):
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 Northwest Territories (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...
Principal Investigator:Wells, David A Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Wiese, Francis Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:McGeer, Jim Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Steedman, Audrey Licenced Year(s):
The main objectives of this research project are to determine if macroinvertebrate community structure and composition is changing over time in freshwater streams in the South Nahanni watershed; and, to determine whether mining activities degrade the health of streams in the South Nahanni Watershed and define zones of degradation due to mining activities. These test sites are downstream of mines.
Principal Investigator:Maier, Kris Licenced Year(s):
The research teram seek to build on the 2014 & 2015 success in monitoring habitats and using electrofishing to assess juvenile Dolly Varden occupancy. Specific objectives include: 1) continue implementing a community-based monitoring program to monitor essential habitats; 2) further delineate the spatial distribution of juvenile char in the Fish Creek watershed; and, 3) finalize the occupancy mode...
