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 is interested in how climate change is impacting Arctic rivers. The team will make measurements of the concentration of naturally-occurring chemicals (like carbon and nitrogen) and try to...
Principal Investigator:Robb, Tonia L Licenced Year(s):
The main objectives of the field work for 2009 to 2013 will be to determine if the EKATI mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality 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 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler).
During the week of spring freshet, ...
Principal Investigator:Sibbald, Carey Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the 2012 Aquatics program is to continue baseline data collection to further characterize the baseline water and sediment quality and aquatic communities at specific lakes within the Thor Lake area and Avalon's Thor Lake Rare Earth Elements Project footprint.
Water, sediment and aquatic organisms will be collected at up to 11 stations (10 lakes) within the Thor Lake area. Most ...
Principal Investigator:Farrell, Rory Licenced Year(s):
To take specific samples for the completion of a remedial action plan and risk assessment for the Five Mine Sites.
The field component of the project will be conducted over a two day period.
Limited soil and mine tailing samples from the most contaminated areas of the site will be taken. These areas were previously identified in past environmental site assessments. The samples will be collec...
Principal Investigator:Hansen, Ken Licenced Year(s):201520142013
The objectives of this research project are: to establish baseline water quality, water levels and flow conditions; and to evaluate potential changes in water quality and quantity before and after initiation of site operations.
A desktop regional hydrological assessment will be conducted by analyzing existing Water Survey of Canada hydrometric data for stations situated near the area of investi...
Principal Investigator:Pickart, Robert S. Licenced Year(s):2013
The main objective is to characterize the western Arctic Boundary current (which flows at the edge of the shelf), in order to understand its role in dictating shelf-basin exchange of water and materials and how it impacts the ecosystem of the region, including the occurrence of marine mammals.
This project is a collaboration between US and Canadian scientists. The research team is using a comb...
Principal Investigator:Bartlett, Mike Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the research project is to monitor the surface water quality in Bosworth Creek. Data from sampling stations established within and downstream of the Site will be compared to upstream reference stations, located beyond the possible influence of the development, and against an appropriate range of regional data indicating natural variability (where available). Stations will be monit...
Principal Investigator:Wang, Zhaohui 'Aleck' Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this research project is to make time-series measurements of the CO2 system in the Mackenzie River, near Inuvik, Northwest Territories. Monthly water sampling is taking place at the Mackenzie River near Inuvik by technicians from the Aurora Research Institute.
Data will be shared with local communities for education purposes as well as annual reports and publications made avail...

To collect baseline environmental information for future environmental effects monitoring.
Surveys will include fish, fish habitat, water and sediment quality, and geochemistry. Equipment for surveys will be limited to standard field measuring and surveying equipment, such as automated water quality monitors, GPS units, motorized inflatable boats, fixed wing aircraft and helicopters. An automat...
