Yellowknife Wetland Delineation Study and Great Slave Lake Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Brown, Jennifer M
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5336. The purpose of the Wetland Delineation Study is to define the flow paths of effluent from the treatment lagoon to Great Slave Lake and thereby inform sampling design of the Great Slave Lake Monitoring Program. The objectives of the Wetland Delineation are varied and, based on available documentation, we understand the...


Investigating the seasonality of subarctic lakes in a changing climate using satellite & field data
Principal Investigator: Kheyrollah Pour, Homa
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5335. This proposed research is directed at understanding the impact of current/future climate warming on subarctic lake ecosystems. The aim is to explore the relationship of seasonal lake ice growth/ablation and water quality across a wide range of lake characteristics (size, volume, productivity, catchment characteristics...


Thompson-Lundmark Mine Remediation Project Phase III Environmental Site Assessment
Principal Investigator: Kalinovich, Indra
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5312. The objective of this project is to address the data gaps at the Thompson-Lundmark Mine site.

Principal Investigator: Steinwand, Tyanna
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5210. The purpose of this project is to determine changes in todzi harvesting pressure following construction of the road. The research team will determine sustainable levels of harvest for boreal caribou in the North Slave area before the road is built; Monitor harvesting pressure on boreal caribou and moose after the road...


Measuring and simulating permafrost thaw
Principal Investigator: Gruber, Stephan
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5114. The objectives of this project are to understand: 1) how permafrost differs in temperature and chemical/physical characteristics from place to place; 2) how these different types of permafrost react to change (climate/disturbance); and, 3) which future changes in permafrost are likely and which are less likely based o...

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 ...


Diavik Frame Lake Aerator Program
Principal Investigator: Sinclair, Sean
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5302. There are two objectives: 1) determine if installing an aerator in Frame Lake, Yellowknife, NT, will increase dissolved oxygen levels in the lake such that fish can be reintroduced; and 2) if phase 1 proves successful, transfer fish into Frame Lake and monitor growth and reproduction to determine if the population is ...
