Understanding the integrated eco-hydrological behaviour of ecosystems in the context of thawing permafrost is a major challenge. To meet this, the research team will provide rigorous estimates of the present surface and near-surface water supplies and their inter-annual variability assuming a condition of no permafrost thaw. The research team will also develop critical new knowledge on the eco-hyd...

A Lake Bathymetry Survey is required for lakes along the proposed Highway between km 105 and km 120. The objective of the survey is to gather lake bathymetry data in support of estimating water volumes required for regulatory approval for winter water extraction.
This work will be completed further to responsible environmental and engineering practices as outlined in Environmental Impact State...
Principal Investigator:Wilcockson, John B Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this research is to collect bathymetry information on lakes to estimate water volume of each lake and therefore maximum volume of water which can be withdrawn. A subset of lakes will also be assessed for fish presence.
A gps-referenced depth sounder will be used to record detailed lake depth information. On a subset of lakes the research team will utilize several fish capture t...

The main objective of the program is to collect fisheries and environmental baseline information to better understand the environmental characteristics of the Great Bear River and to support potential future development of hydropower on the Great Bear River. The program is not being conducted to support a specific project as there are no hydropower projects planned for the Great Bear River at thi...

This licence is issued for the scientific research application No.969.
The objectives of this research is to investigate the processes related to water quality and quantity (collected at different scales) draining from country rock stockpiles that are located in areas of continuous permafrost. Country rock stockpiles are mounds of rock removed from open pit diamond mines. The quality of water ...

The objectives of this study are to 1) address information gaps with respect to groundwater quality and quantity along the proposed pipeline corridor; 2)gather groundwater information along the corridor between Fort Simpson and Great Bear Lake; 3) examine remediation processes for, and results of, petroleum spills in the north; and 4) help the Department of Transportation investigate potential gro...

The Trail Valley Creek site will be accessed by Twin Otter, helicopter and snowmobile, while the Havikpak Creek site will be accessed by foot and snowmobile. We plan to have a small field crew at each site to measure the amount of snow on the ground in the middle of April, and to again return to measure snowmelt and the streamflow in mid to late May. Actual timing of the spring melt trip will depe...

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...
