Environmental study of the aquatic resources of the Thonokeid Lake area
Principal Investigator: Couture, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers will continue their study on fish and other aquatic organisms found in lakes and streams of the Thonokeid Lake area. Muscle and liver tissues of fish will be taken in order to assess levels of heavy metals. In addition, water chemistry data will be collected....

Canol Pipeline environmental study
Principal Investigator: Reimer, K.J.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The Environmental Sciences Group has been requested by Indian and Northern Affairs to conduct an environmental study of the Canol Pipeline. The study will identify contaminants (especially hydrocarbons) along the Canol Trail associated with the construction and startup of the pipeline. Where spills are evident, data will be collected on soils, water, vegetation and stream invertebrates to determ...

Wager Bay Basin Overview
Principal Investigator: Swyripa, Murray
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The Water Resources Division, along with the Inland Waters Directorate and Canadian Parks Service, are planning a cooperative water quality program for the Wager Bay area. This program will involve measuring stream flow rates and sampling for water quality at a number of sites on rivers that flow into Wager Bay within the proposed Wager Bay National Park area. As well, water and sediment samples...

Distribution, movements and relative abundance of dolly varden charr at the Big Fish River, NWT
Principal Investigator: Harwood, Lois
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: This project will involve tagging charr and monitoring their movements. The fish will be tagged at the overwintering site in spring, before they start to migrate downstream. The fish with radio tags will be tracked every 4-6 weeks throughout the spring, summer and fall. Fish caught by the summer fishery at Shingle Point and having floy tags will be recorded. 100 charr each (mostly females) wil...

1992 Fisheries Investigations in the South Basin
Principal Investigator: Clayton, Terry
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researchers will obtain fisheries, water quality and bathymetric information on Long Lake, as well as obtaining information on the relative abundance of fish in other waterbodies of the South Basin. They will also obtain information on levels of metals in fish tissue from selected South Basin waterbodies....

Initial Aquatic Inventory, Izok Lake Mine Project
Principal Investigator: Ash, Gary R.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will obtain baseline water quality data for the study waterbodies, discharge information for the major streams in the study area, baseline information on fish species composition and relative abundance in the study area, and information of background levels of metals in fish tissue from selected waterbodies in the area....

Ecology of High Arctic Marine Molluscs
Principal Investigator: Aitken, Alec
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The researcher and his team will sample molluscs (clams, snails) using a grab sampler and a small benthic dredge. Oceanographic stations will be established in the study area to obtain measurements of water temperature, salinity and dissolved oxygen content. Animals recovered in the grab and dredge samples will be washed on a 0.5 mm sieve and preserved for identification later in the laboratory....

Limnology and Paleoecology of Arctic Lakes: Belcher Islands and Yellowknife Area
Principal Investigator: Smol, John
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: The Researchers will collect water samples from lakes and ponds to assess the present water quality. Lake and pond mud samples will also be taken to identify algal indications of lake quality....

Contaminants in the Mackenzie River Delta Water and Suspended Sediment
Principal Investigator: Peddle, Juanetta
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researchers will establish an overview of background levels of contaminants in the Mackenzie River Delta. The study includes collection of large volume water, suspended sediment and grab samples at both inflow and outflow sites of the Mackenzie River Delta. Large volume samples will be extracted at the Inuvik Research Centre, and concentrated before being shipped out for analysis....

Nicholas Lake Project/George Lake Project
Principal Investigator: Ott, Bruce
Licenced Year(s): 1990 1989
Summary: The Researcher and his team will be collecting baseline environmental data on natural conditions at Nicholas and George Lakes. This includes collecting water, soils and vegetation information....
