2017 Tarsuit Caissons Removal Program
Principal Investigator: Clarke, Kim P
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to refloat and remove the Tarsuit Caissons from Lease Area 117/D11-3-7. Following their removal, the research team will conduct the following evaluation of the affected site and adjacent area: 1) Side Scan Survey 2) Macro invertebrate Survey A sidescan/multibeam unit (Edgetech 6205, or similar) will be pole mounted on the bathymetry vessel and data will be col...


Long-term perspectives on aquatic ecosystem change with thawing permafrost
Principal Investigator: Korosi, Jennifer B
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The research team will re-survey 70 lakes originally sampled in 2005/06, to assess how conditions have changed in the intervening decade as thaw slumping has intensified and the Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway (ITH) was constructed. The team will assess how lake ecosystems responded to past climatic shifts throughout the post-glacial history of these lakes (10,000 years), and use these records to provi...


Kennady North Diamond Project
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this research is to document existing environmental conditions surrounding the Kennady North Diamond Project. Hydrology studies include the measurement of selected lake inflow and outflow and stream profile through field surveys, and installation of data loggers to continually monitor lake levels through the open-water season. Hydrology studies will be initiated during the spri...


Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The objective of this research project are to: 1) improve the understanding of microbial carbon-processing in Mackenzie Delta lakes and how it is affected by the changing water levels; and, 2) to decipher the impact of water level changes on the ability of the Mackenzie Delta to affect riverine nutrient flow to the ocean. This work will help resolve what drives microbial communities in Mackenzi...


Effects of fire on peatland permafrost stability and carbon cycling
Principal Investigator: Olefeldt, David
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The project team intend to study carbon cycling in peatland catchments, in order to determine whether the interactions between wildfire and permafrost thaw causes increased release of greenhouse gases from peatlands and aquatic ecosystems to the atmosphere, and thus cause amplified climate change. Given the overall objective of the project, the team intend to address five research questions: ...


Community-Based Water Quality Monitoring in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Beveridge, Meghan
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The purpose of the project is to work in collaboration with Northwest Territories (NWT) communities to collect water quality data to answer community concerns and questions about the health of NWT waters, to enhance understanding of cumulative impacts and to contribute to decision making. There are three associated objectives: 1) collect water quality data at locations throughout the NWT, to ...


Taltson Hydroelectric Facility Aquatic Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Miller, Matthew
Licenced Year(s): 2017 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 monitoring to determine the best operating procedure for the ann...


Understanding Changes in the Freshwater Ecosystems and Drinking Water in Northern Canada
Principal Investigator: Spicer, Neal
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The Objectives of this research are to: 1) determine where the participating communities obtain their drinking water from within their home and while on the land and why; and determine the areas of each region that are considered valuable and important areas of water quality; and 2) determine what the concerns are concerning the sources of water, both within the homes and natural water sources, ...

Summary: Follow-up on exploration activity associated with theMackenzie Valley Land and Water Board land use permit MV2014C0005 on Terrax Minerals Inc. City of Yellowknife Gold Project. Work would include initial environmental baseline work, and expansion of research programs to establish sufficient study for possible future Environmental Impact Assessment of potential mine development if exploration activ...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué 2014 Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Kramers, Patrick
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies is to continue to describe the existing environment, and obtain information once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects. The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, hydrology, geochemistry, vegetation, soil, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources data and wildlife occurrence. These study ...
