Through analysis of sediment/water interface samples, freeze cores, and dendrochronology, the researchers intend to:
i) develop a comprehensive sub-decadal to centennial-scale late Holocene climatic history along a 2° latitudinal gradient in the central NT, variously based on microfossils (pollen, diatoms, thecamoebians, chironomids), sedimentologic, cyclostratigraphic, stable isotopic, ...

Objectives of this research will be to confirm the presence or absence of fish habitat at stream crossings associated with the Prairie Creek Winter Access Road alignment and if present document fish habitat characteristics (physical). The information will support documentation requirements for the Department of Fisheries and Oceans relating to the Fisheries Act and the potential need for a Fisheri...

A new 156 km winter road is proposed, extending from the end of the Ingraham Trail to Lockhart Lake, following a route similar to that of the existing winter road. The objective is to acquire airborne digital imagery (including LiDAR and digital video) data to produce maps; to determine fish presence/absence in streams around the route and fish utilization of habitat, to determine potential fish h...
Principal Investigator:Kim, Jae Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this program is to ground-truth (survey) routes and collect topographical and meteorological information relating to proposed access roads. Winter access roads will go to the Parsons Lake North pad from Tuktoyaktuk and from the mouth of Pete's Creek. The all season roads will go from the north pad to the gravel resource and to the airstrip, as well as the airstrip itself.
Principal Investigator:Hawkins, Jim R. Licenced Year(s):
Primary access to the field is the winter road that extends north of Wrigley to Fort Good Hope. Two temporary rig camps will be set up, one near the Hamlet of Tulita and the other near the intersection of the existing winter road and Little Smith Creek. Each camp will be able to accommodate up to 60 people. Secondary access to the investigation sites and potential water sources will follow existi...

The anticipated studies include lake bathymetry, fish and fish habitat, and vegetation studies. Measurements of lake depths, surface area and other bathymetric features will determine lakes suitable for water withdrawal during the proposed construction phase of the winter access roads. Bathymetry work will be conducted with a digital echo-sounder linked to a GPS and other supporting equipment. Lak...
Principal Investigator:Graburn, Larry Licenced Year(s):
Field investigation activities will be directed and carried out from existing accommodation in Inuvik. The work area will be accessed from the Dempster Highway and the C.N.T. trail. Secondary access will follow existing winter roads, rights-of-way, and...
Principal Investigator:Couture, Richard Licenced Year(s):
The following provides a brief outline of the aquatic resources program proposed to be undertaken during the summer of 2001. A northern First Nations field assistant will assist the Fisheries Biologist with the implementation of the field portion of the work. The proposed aquatic resource studies will be conducted during July 2001 and will constitute a reconnaissance level survey. The program wi...
Principal Investigator:Hoos, Richard Licenced Year(s):
Based on the Project Description Report and ongoing discussions with BHP on behalf of the Winter Road Joint Venture, the following study components will be completed during the 2001 summer field season: (1) Spring Engineering/Environmental Reconnaissance Survey. The research team will record observations on the "condition" of each of the portages. Particular attention will be directed to areas of...
Principal Investigator:Melton, Derek Licenced Year(s):
Main objective is to establish baseline wildlife & fisheries habitat conditions prior to start of Ranger Oil's winter exploration drilling program. All sampling will be done over a 2-3 day period in mid-September. Three well sites are planned for drilling. Well site 1 is near Nota Creek & accessed by the Norman Wells-Tulita winter road plus an existing short cutline. Well site 2 is near Bear Rock ...
