Sources, transport, and fate of microplastics in the Mackenzie River, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Bourdages, Madelaine
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5225. The first objective of this project is to quantify microplastic concentration and composition in water, sediment, and air in the Mackenzie River delta. The second objective is to examine if microplastic concentrations are greater near communities. The third objective is to identify if microplastics are being transport...


R/V Mirai Arctic Ocean cruise in 2022
Principal Investigator: KITAMURA (ITOH), Motoyo
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5177. The objective of this program is to monitor on-going Arctic changes, which are related to the recent global warming. Sea water measurements and plankton sampling are important to know oceanic ecosystem health because plankton are food for fish, seabirds and marine mammals. Microplastic pollution sampling and ocean wav...


Sources and fate of microplastics in Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Bourdages, Madelaine
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5224. The first objective of this project is to quantify microplastic concentration and composition in water, sediment, zooplankton, and air around Great Slave Lake. The second objective of this project is to examine if microplastic concentrations are greater near communities than the open water of Great Slave Lake. The thi...


Assessing the potential for geotextiles to be a source of microplastics to Arctic aquatic environments
Principal Investigator: Bourdages, Madelaine
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4999. The first objective of this project is to determine whether geotextiles used in bank stability, such as those used along the ITH, are a source of microplastics to Arctic aquatic environments. The second objective is to determine whether terrestrial soils located directly downstream of geotextiles which flood during an...
