Monitoring of mercury, flame retardants and other chemicals in lake trout and cisco from Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5359. This study is designed to find out whether contaminant levels are changing in fish (lake trout and cisco) in Great Bear Lake. Of particular interest is mercury. It complements ongoing fish population studies being conducted by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans on Great Bear Lake and contributes to Deline's resear...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in fish from the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2017 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5350. The purpose of this study is to continue to investigate whether contaminant (mercury, other metals, persistent organic contaminants) levels are changing in fish in the Northwest Territories with a focus on Great Slave Lake. The research team plan to arrange collections of lake trout from the Hay River area and Lutsel ...


Contaminants (PAHs, mercury) in the Mackenzie River and fish health assessments: implementation of classic and new molecular screening tools for environmental monitoring and stressor assessment
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5333. This study will determine the concentrations of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in small-bodied fish in the Norman Wells/Imperial area near nature oil seeps and industrial activities with comparisons to be made with upstream (Tulita area) and downstream (Fort Good Hope) areas. The research team will also asses...


CoMet 2.0 Arctic
Principal Investigator: Fix, Andreas
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5211. This project will use aircraft-based instruments using both remote-sensing and in-situ-techniques to carry out measurements of methane and carbon trace gases and tracers related to their emissions. The results will help to better understand the global methane and carbon cycle. This mission makes use of the German r...


NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) Airborne Initiative 2022
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5304. The extended ABoVE Study Area includes most of northwestern North America west of Hudson Bay and north and east of the coastal mountain ranges. It encompasses the variability in the key types of ecosystems that are both unique to arctic and boreal regions in North America as well as being representative of the larger ...


Investigating the age and geochemical origins of the mixed (NYF+LCT) pegmatites at the O’Grady Batholith, Northwest Territories, Canada
Principal Investigator: Groat, Lee A.
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5299. The main objectives of this fieldwork are to: 1) constrain the connection between the Niobium-Yttrium-Fluorine (NYF) and Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum (LCT) pegmatites; 2) assess the parental connections to the granite batholith which will provide insight into the evolution of melt over time, leading to a deeper understandi...


Hydrocarbon-derived compounds (anthropogenic and natural) in water bodies in the Sahtú
Principal Investigator: Gurney, Kirsty E.
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5262. The research team are proposing to work with community partners to collect samples and analyze data describing concentrations of Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds (PAC’s) in the Mackenzie River and in other water bodies, along a gradient of environmental disturbance. Specifically, the program will evaluate the relative co...


Sahtu Dene and Metis Community Engagement in the Closure and Reclamation of the Norman Wells Oilfield
Principal Investigator: King, Ann
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5250. This projects aims and objectives are to examine the processes of engagement and roles of Sahtu Dene and Metis knowledge and perspectives for their traditional territory in the Norman Wells Oilfield Reclamation and Closure. The Principal Investigator (PI) will: 1) review how Indigenous peoples living in northern Canad...


Basin Analysis of the Imperial Formation
Principal Investigator: Terlaky, Viktor
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5283. This research study aims to fill the existing knowledge gaps about the Imperial Formation, including its regional sedimentology and stratigraphy (what types of rocks do we see regionally; how do they change vertically and laterally), ichnology and paleontology (what kind of fossils/traces do we see in the rocks). Addi...


Characterization of recent permafrost landslides and ground ice distribution in the central Mackenzie Valley, NWT
Principal Investigator: Froese, Duane G
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5318. This work builds on studies over the last several years, including field work in the Mackenzie River valley in 2018 and 2019. The objective of 2021 fieldwork is twofold: 1) characterizing a large suite of retrogressive thaw slumps and thaw-induced landslides in the Redstone, Keele, and Johnson River basins that have i...
