Further Examination of the Bio- Magnification of Mercury within Fish Species of the Dehcho and Their Varying Levels Among Lakes
Principal Investigator: Swanson, Heidi
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine why fish mercury levels vary among lakes in the Dehcho region; 2) to identify best predictors of fish mercury levels; and, 3) to determine which fish have the lowest levels of mercury and highest levels of micro-nutrients and fatty acids. The methods for this project include two parts, first is the collection of food web data from eac...


ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into regio...


Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program 2008
Principal Investigator: MacDonald, Gord
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The objective of this study is to determine any seasonal variation in water quality, zooplankton & phytoplankton biomass and taxonomy, benthic invertebrate analysis and sediment chemistry, and will also include dust monitoring. Transportation will be by boat, snow machine, and helicopter. Samples will be taken for water chemistry, phosphorous & nitrogen, sediment, benthic invertebrates, zoopla...


Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The long-term goal of this project is to develop a biogeochemical model for lakes in the Mackenzie Delta, and ultimately, a more general ecosystem model for floodplains and deltas of major world rivers that will help assess the effects of multiple stresses on rivers resulting from global change. Numerous major river deltas in the Arctic circumpolar region are lake-rich because of thermokarst effec...


2004 Baseline Aquatic and Fisheries Survey of Fox Pit Area
Principal Investigator: Granchinho, Sophia
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: BHP Billiton has retained Rescan Environmental Services Ltd. to conduct a baseline aquatic and fisheries survey of lakes near the Fox Pit in the Koala Watershed on the EKATI claim block. The Fox Pit is the newest pit being constructed at EKATI. The wast...


Gahcho Kue (Kennady Lake) Baseline Limnology Program (2003)
Principal Investigator: McEachern, Laurie
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002
Summary: To assist with current environmental management of the Kennady Lake or Gahcho Kue Project (an advanced mineral exploration property operated by DeBeers Canada Exploration Inc.), and to prepare for an assessment of environmental effects of potential futur...


Effects of Processed Kimberlite Effluent from the Ekati Diamond Mine, NT on Freshwater Zooplankton.
Principal Investigator: Liber, Karsten
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be transported to Long Lake by aircraft, and will travel by truck on the mine site. Sample collection will be carried out using a motorized boat. Water and phytoplankton samples will be collected using a 10 L Go-Flo water sampler. Zooplankton samples will be collected using a zooplankton net. There are three taxa of freshwater zooplankton that may be collected from Long ...


Baseline Limnology Program, Kennady Lake 2001 Environmental Program
Principal Investigator: Lawson, Nick
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The objectives of the research team are to collect baseline environmental information on the DeBeers Canada Exploration Ltd. project at Kennady Lake, to assist with the current environmental management of the property and prepare for an assessment of the environmental effects of potential future development of the site. Three field visits to Kennady Lake will be completed during the summer of 200...


Genetic Diversity in the Biota of Arctic Lakes
Principal Investigator: Hebert, Paul
Licenced Year(s): 1997
Summary: Our research will involve the survey of zooplankton communities in lakes and ponds of the Mackenzie Delta area (Inuvialuit private lands). Samples will be collected by either wading in ponds or by towing at net behind a float equipped helicopter. Samples will be frozen in liquid nitrogen, and subsequently examined for genetic variation. Our work aims to establish the species diversity of zoopla...


Distribution, Systematics and Genetic Structure of Arctic Zooplankton.
Principal Investigator: Hebert, Paul D.N.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992
Summary: The research involves the use of helicopters with floats to sample the animal life present in lakes on the Melville Peninsula and northwestern Baffin Island. Most of our work will concentrate on the capture of zooplankton, small animals which foram an important part of the diet of young fish. After the collections are made, the samples are taken back to the Igloolik labratory, where they are sor...
