ABoVE Permafrost Dynamics Observatory
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective of this project is to collect physical and geophysical measurements quantifying permafrost susceptibility to ABoVE's internationally-available dataset. Researchers can access these data to bolster understanding of environmental processes and the ability to remotely-sense these on a regional scale. Airborne remote sensing missions from August 2017, 2018, and August of 2019 by NASA'...


NASA ABoVE Airborne Campaign 2019
Principal Investigator: Miller, Charles E
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4499. This airborne field campaign will link studies conducted on the ground with data collected through satellite remote sensing, enabling a deeper understanding of the vulnerability and resilience of these ecosystems, and how people within and beyond this region are responding to change. The ABoVE airborne campaigns can p...


Ekati Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Pacholski, Laura J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2019 will be: 1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and 2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 2.5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week of sprin...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Liu, William X
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies is to obtain information on the environment once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects. The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, geochemistry, hydrology, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources, dustfall, vegetation and soil information. The studies are designed to monitor the area aro...


De Beers Canada Snap Lake Mine Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Hood, Alexandra E
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2002 2001 2000 1999
Summary: This research is intended to meet regulatory requirements from the Snap Lake Environmental Assessment and under the mine's Water License, Land Use permit and Environmental Agreement. The objectives of this research project are to obtain and determine annual variability of the relative abundance, distribution, group composition and behaviour of caribou; the relative activity of grizzly bears; t...


EKATI Aquatic Monitoring Program, 2009-2013
Principal Investigator: Robb, Tonia L
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2009 to 2013 will be to determine if the EKATI mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week of spring freshet, ...


Melville Island South Ice Cap Mass Balance & Snow Pollution
Principal Investigator: Burgess, David O
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: By measuring the changing volume of the ice cap and maintaining an Automatic weather station the research team is able to tell how much the climate is changing. The snow sampling tells how clean the snow and air above it is and whether or not it is changing. While at the Melville ice cap, the team lives in a small hut by the side of the ice cap constructed last year. There is an automatic weath...


Sunphotometer measurements at Yellowknife
Principal Investigator: O'Neill, Norm T
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this research project is to measure the aerosol optical depth and sky radiance at Yellowknife using an automated, sun-tracking, CIMEL sunphotometer. In this project, measurements of instruments in the network (called AEROCAN which is the Canadian sub-network of the world-wide NASA-led network called AERONET) are performed using a CIMEL sunphotometer / sky radiometer. This instr...


Environmental Surveys of the Fortune Minerals NICO Project
Principal Investigator: Goad, Robin E
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The scope of environmental studies to be undertaken includes fish and fish habitat, water quality, air quality, and vegetation surveys. Equipment for habitat surveys will be limited to standard field measuring and surveying equipment, such as GPS units, and helicopters. An automated meteorological station has been set up to collect weather data. A summer and fall fish and fish habitat survey w...


Dust Distribution and Monitoring using Lichens as Bioindicators
Principal Investigator: Wytrychowski, Scott I
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2010 2005
Summary: Air quality is an issue at mine sites, and diamond mining can contribute large quantities of dust to the air. This dust may contain elevated levels of heavy metals. Vehicle and generator exhausts also contribute to air pollution and greenhouse gases. To acheive the goal of sustainable development, Diavik policy focuses on the need to identify potential risks and set targets for pollution preventio...
