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 ...


EKATI Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Hayward, April
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2017 to 2021 will be:1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and 2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 2.5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week o...


Environmental Studies for EL470 - 5yr
Principal Investigator: Belland, Darlene
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The objective of this project is to conduct ongoing monitoring and assessment programs, including areas in the Mackenzie River Special Management Zone (SMZ), for surface water. Surface water samples will be collected from selected lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams. Selected water bodies in EL470 have already undergone bathymetric assessment and sampling. ConocoPhillips will communicate, in ...


Diavik Aquatics Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licenced Year(s): 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 AEMP Version 3.5 will consist of the following components; Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Dust Deposition; Effluent and Water Chemistry; Indicators of Eut...


The Arctic Great Rivers Observatory III
Principal Investigator: Holmes, Robert Max
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The Arctic Great Rivers Observatory project studies the six largest rivers in the Arctic: the Mackenzie and Yukon Rivers in North America, and the Ob', Yenisey, Lena, and Kolyma Rivers in Russia. The research team are interested in how climate change is impacting Arctic rivers. The team will take measurements of the concentration of naturally-occurring chemicals (like carbon and nitrogen) and try ...

Principal Investigator: Wiese, Francis
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management issued a request that Stantec Inc. plan and execute a program during the 2016 field season to accomplish t 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...


The effect of permafrost slumping on carbon delivery from land to water
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The objective of this study is to understand how permafrost slumping increases the mobilization of organic and inorganic carbon from land to water, and the effects of this movement on stream communities. To do this work, 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 experimen...


Using the past to inform the future: A paleoecological perspective of the impacts of drought and fire on lakes, permafrost and forests
Principal Investigator: Pisaric, Michael FJ
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this research are to examine the frequency and severity of past wildfire and drought (drought-like) conditions in the southern Northwest Territories. Specifically, the research team will examine the following questions: 1) how frequent and severe have fires been in the past; 2) are fires becoming more frequent/severe due to the impacts of climate change; 3) what impact does wildf...
