Principal Investigator: Low, Mike
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4590. 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; 3) to determine with fish have the lowest levels of mercury and the highest levels of nutrients; and, 4) to collect data on parameters that ...


Dehcho Collective on Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Sioui, Miguel PS
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4512. The overall objective is to generate a fusion of leading-edge scientific and Indigenous knowledge on permafrost, and use it as a basis to co-develop new predictive decision support tools and innovative risk management strategies to inventory and manage permafrost and adapt to permafrost thaw. This program will co-d...
