Temperature and oxygen concentrations in Dolomite (Airport) Lake
Principal Investigator: Lord, Sarah
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The purpose of this study is to directly measure temperature and dissolved oxygen concentrations in Airport Lake throughout the year, and to find out if low oxygen levels are limiting the growth rate of lake trout population in this lake. Repeated sampling at the same locations on the lake during fall, winter, spring, and summer will show whether oxygen levels are adequate for optimal lake trout t...


Benthic Macroinvertebrate Monitoring (Slave and Hay Rivers)
Principal Investigator: Levasseur, Annie
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project is to establish a baseline for benthic invertebrates’ community structure and composition in the transboundary reaches of the Slave and Hay Rivers and to track their status and conditions over time to assess ecosystem health and provide an early warning of change or stress in the environment. The monitoring plan involves selecting and sampling several 500m long re...


The ecology and paleoecology of benthic macroinvertebrates in the Mackenzie Delta region
Principal Investigator: Quinlan, Roberto
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of our study are to 1) establish the importance of lake connectivity in determining the community composition and species richness of the invertebrate community of a lake, and the contribution of lakes of differing connectivity to the regional diversity of the Mackenzie Delta, 2) characterize the response of invertebrate communities to changing peak flood levels to allow prediction ...


NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective is to describe the aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Bluefish Lake and Prosperous Lake as per the Fisheries Authorization and the Water Licence. This may include investigating aquatic vegetation, water quality and quantity, benthic invertebrates, fish and substrate. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation or produc...


Environmental Baseline Surveys for the Fortune Minerals Limited NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Schryer, Richard P
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of this project is to complete a Supplemental Baseline Monitoring Plan (SBMP) for water quality, fish population and benthic invertebrate programs. The SBMP contains two major study areas: Burke Lake, Reference Lake and the Marian River. Burke Lake will be the exposure area and Reference Lake will serve as the reference area for the SBMP. The exposure area for the Marian River wat...


A Program to Evaluate Changing Northern Lake Ice Regimes
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this research project is to complete on ice snow depth, ice thickness and composition survey along with collection under ice core water quality and biological information. Sample locations from previous years are located using a handheld GPS. On ice snow depth is measured using a tape measure. An ice auger is used to penetrate the ice cover and evaluate if white ice is present...


Aquatic Environmental Effects Monitoring - Flat River at Cantung Mine
Principal Investigator: Hoos, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2009 2002
Summary: The objectives of this research are: (1) to determine length, weight, and general condition of 100 fish and tissue analysis of not more than 10 fish (Slimy Sculpin- Cottus cognatus) per site at five site locations in the Flat River: two locations upstream of the CanTung mine site, one adjacent to the mine site and at two locations downstream of the mine site; and, (2) to determine sediment and w...


ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...


De Beers Snap Lake Mine - 2009 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: McCallum, Dee
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: This license has been issued for the scientific research application #942. The objective of the environmental monitoring programs is to fulfill the requirements outlined under the Snap Lake Mine’s Land Use Permit, Water Licence, Environmental Agreement and Fisheries Authorization and to meet De Beers’ corporate commitments on the environment. The environmental monitoring program will cover a...


2008 Baseline Studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. proposed Thor Lake Rare earth metals project (Aquatics and Hydrology component)
Principal Investigator: Sibbald, Carey
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008
Summary: This licence is issued for the scientific research application #914. The objective of this research is to provide a baseline study of the hydrology, groundwater, water and sediment quality and aquatic life in and around the Thor Lake area. Hydrology measurements will involve the installation of three continuous stream-flow gauging stations (at the outflow of Thor Lake, and at two of the inf...
