Marine Arctic Ecosystem Study (MARES)
Principal Investigator: Wiese, Francis
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: BOEM issued a request that Stantec Inc. plan and execute a program during the 2016 field season to accomplish t the following objectives: 1) to collect physical, biological and chemical observations in the Eastern Beaufort Sea from moored and moving platforms; 2) to describe and analyze physical, biological and chemical observations acquired from the moving platforms; and, 3) to simultaneousl...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Restoration – Exploring the Potential for Using Indigenous Plant Species to Revegetate Coastline Affected by Permafrost Thaw Slumping
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1) create a series of maps showing the thaw slump activity along the Beaufort Sea Coast near Tuktoyaktuk; 2) develop detailed water, vegetation, and ground temperature maps of the study sites using drones; 3) examine the effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of landscape-level runoff to the Beaufort Sea; 4) examine the effects of coastal erosion ...


The effect of permafrost slumping on carbon delivery from land to water
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The objective of this study is to understand how permafrost slumping increases the mobilization of carbon from land to water, and the effects of this transport on stream communities and the global carbon cycle. This summer, the research team will measure streamwater chemistry upstream and downstream of slump sites. The team will also examine the fate of this carbon by undertaking incubation experi...


Jackfish Lake Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Machtans, Hilary
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The main objective of the Jackfish Lake Baseline Environmental Monitoring is to develop and implement a one-year environmental monitoring program to support a 2019 water licence application. Specific objectives are: 1) to determine the range of water temperatures from each of the three cooling systems; 2) to measure annual water temperature regime in Jackfish Lake and analyse any impacts of the ...


Kennady North Diamond Project
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to document existing environmental conditions in the aquatic environment. The hydrology program includes 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 spring freshet. Equ...


Impact of climate change on catchment biogeochemistry in plains and shield regions
Principal Investigator: Olefeldt, David
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objective of this research is to identify impacts of climate change and permafrost thaw on pond methane emissions, and on water chemistry in streams that drain peatland-rich catchments. Impacts on methane emissions will be assessed. Specific objectives are: 1) to characterize the trends and variability in magnitude of methane emission from ponds along climate gradients within both the Taiga...


Impact of ferry landings on water quality and traditional fish harvesting in the Mackenzie and Peel Rivers
Principal Investigator: Gray, Derek K
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: Fishing is an important part of the Gwich’in way of life. Concerns in the Gwich’in communities of Fort McPherson and Tsiigehtchic have arisen with regards to the use of granular material in ferry landings. Anthropogenic sediment from ferry landings has the potential to alter river ecology downstream thus impacting valuable fish habitat. The objectives of this research project are to determine ...


Long-term aquatic ecosystem change at the southern limit of permafrost
Principal Investigator: Korosi, Jennifer B
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The goal is to reconstruct long-term environmental change (hundreds to thousands of years) by examining chemical and biological fossil remains preserved in lake sediment cores, in order to better understand how thawing permafrost impacts lake ecosystems. 1) Water chemistry and plankton survey The research team will collect lake water samples from the study lakes to analyze for water chemistry...


Investigating the quality of water runoff from different terrain types found along the Dempster-ITH corridor
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1) to examine the water quality of streams located along the Dempster and Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway corridor, to assess the relative importance of latitude (or climate) and surficial geology (e.g., glaciated, unglaciated, upland, peatland, riparian) in controlling water quality; and, 2) to examine the water quality of streams at key points in the year, to in...


Diavik Aquatics Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 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 Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program (AEMP) Version 3.5 will consist of the following components; Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Dust Deposition; Effluent an...
