The prospects for collaborative approaches to transboundary water governance: the Mackenzie River Basin, Canada
Principal Investigator: Morris, Michelle J
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The primary objective of this research is to determine the extent to which collaboration can contribute to socially and environmentally sustainable transboundary water governance where power asymmetries exist. A secondary objective is to identify strategies and tactics that can be used by less powerful actors to achieve their goals in water management agreements. Data will be collected via sem...


Variability in peat plateau energy balance and water chemistry along a warming gradient
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: This research is physically based on a peat plateau and a peat bog, both close to Yellowknife. There are two primary objectives to this research. The first involves quantifying surface energy balances in areas where degradation of peat is pronounced and where it is not. Suprapermafrost water from the degraded and non-degraded sites will be analyzed for nutrients and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) ...


Phase III ESA & RAP for Stark Lake Exploration Site, NT
Principal Investigator: Barnes, Keith G
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objectives of this year’s work program are to: 1. Complete a Phase III Environmental Site Assessment of the site, to further assess and delineate areas of concern on the site to support Remedial Action Plan development; 2. Complete a hazard assessment of the Stark Lake Site to support the development of a health and safety plan, and ensure that the Crown’s due diligence in regards to ...


Great Slave Lake Area Mines: 2013 Sampling Program
Principal Investigator: Wiatzka, Gerd M
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the 2013 Great Slave Lake Mines Sampling Program is to assist Aboriginal And Northern Development Canada-Contaminants And Remediation Directorate (AANDC-CARD) with its ongoing work to clean up abandoned mine sites across the Northwest Territories. The program aims to collect additional environmental data which will be used to confirm current site conditions and to assist with fina...


Food Security and Drinking Water Vulnerability Assessment Related to Permafrost Degradation in the Jean Marie River First Nation
Principal Investigator: Ireland, Margaret
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The main objective of this one year project is to provide the community with a practical tool for assessing Jean Marie River’s (JMR’s) vulnerability to food security in relation to country foods, as well as the vulnerability of sources of country foods and drinkable water used by the community members out on the land, in the context of climate change. This tool will consist of a mapping of permafr...


PWGSC Gordon Lake Environmental Site Assessments
Principal Investigator: Nyman, Jeff
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this program is to determine the environmental and physical conditions at nine sites on Gordon Lake. This will include the identification and quantification of environmental impacts in soil, sediment, surface water and groundwater, and the identification of any hazardous or non-hazardous materials. In addition, samples of biota (including vegetation, fish, benthic invertebrates) m...


Northwest Territories Power Corporation Twin Gorges Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan
Principal Investigator: Byrne, Geraldine
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The Aquatic Effects Monitoring Plan (AEMP) and Sediment and Erosion Management Plan (SEMP) are requirements under water license MV2011L0002 issued by the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVLWB). The objective of the AEMP is to monitor and identify potential short-term, long-term and cumulative changes throughout the Taltson River aquatic environment. The objective of the SEMP is to identify...


Water and Social Well-being in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Carter, Blair
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: Four objectives guide this research: 1) to gain an understanding of the current water resource conditions (e.g., quality and quantity) and contextual circumstances (e.g., community culture, history, traditions) impacting local water use in the Deh Cho Region of the NWT; 2) to use a social well-being lens to unpack values that people associate with water resources in the Region; 3) to translate the...


Arctic Peatland Carbon and Holocene Warm Climates
Principal Investigator: Beilman, David W
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The research team seek to understand carbon dynamics during warm climate intervals in the Arctic: the Holocene Thermal Maximum (HTM) the warmest pre-industrial interval ranging in timing from 10 ka (thousands of years before present) with maximum seasonality to 6 ka with reduced seasonality, and the Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA) at ~1 ka with similar seasonality as today. By studying peat cores f...


Establishing a watershed framework for assessing cumulative impacts of development
Principal Investigator: Chin, Krista
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: Objective 1: Build a partnership between government, communities, regulators and researchers to develop a watershed-based cumulative impact study in areas of oil and gas exploration in the Sahtu region. The Sahtu Renewable Resource Board (SRRB) can play an important coordinating role in bringing partners together and working with the communities to determine appropriate engagement in the projec...
