Using Remote Sensing to Support Cumulative Impact Monitoring of Water Resources in the Northwest Territories.
Principal Investigator: Tsui, Olivier
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective of the winter field survey is to determine and record lakes where ice has frozen to the bottom and areas where floating ice is present. Along with obtaining this information, snow depth, ice thickness, ice type, photos, and local weather conditions will be recorded. The objective of the summer field work is to observe broad wetland types and the extent and presence of submerged aquat...

Present and Past Hydrology, Ecology and Climate of the Mackenzie Basin Deltas
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Brent BBW
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: Summer 2005 field activities will focus on continuing multi-year studies of the modern hydrology and ecology of the Slave River Delta. The aim of this research is to improve knowledge of changes in lake water balance and chemistry and the subsequent responses of aquatic plants over seasonal and inter-annual time-scales under varying climatic and hydrological conditions. Overall, this information...

2003 Baker Creek Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Moore, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2003
Summary: As part of the 2003 Baker Creek Environmental Monitoring Program, Dillon Consulting Limited will conduct fish habitat assessments at Baker Creek, Yellowknife. Benthic invertebrates will be sampled at each of 8 sampling sites using multi-plate artificial...

Fish Habitat Compensation Monitoring Program - Highway #3, Stagg River
Principal Investigator: Moore, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2001 2000
Summary: This program is a detailed assessment of the created/enhanced habitat at Frank Channel, based on fish use and function in comparison with habitat design targets. Habitat monitoring will require seasonal assessments within the open water period at times associated with the targeted fish's life stages (Northern Pike). During early spring, mid summer and late summer, Frank Channel habitat will be m...

Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: There are two specific goals for this field season. 1) Evaluation of distributions of aquatic plants & their relation to water clarity and flooding among a set of lakes that range from non-transparent to relatively transparent. This study will improve our understanding of how changes in the delta sedimentation regime could affect the amount of plant growth at the base of the aquatic food chain. T...

Assessment of seaweed species in the Whale Cove area
Principal Investigator: Copland, Ian
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: The researchers will conduct an inventory of the local seaweed stocks found within a 12-mile radius of Whale Cove. Samples of seaweed will be collected from areas with different habitat (e.g., solid rock seabed, cobble seabed, etc.) to determine species type, and plant size and maturity. In addition, a collection device (called a `drag') will be used to gather larger samples of seaweed in order ...

Geographic Distribution, Physiological Adaptations, Systematics and Ecology of Stream Macroalgae in North America
Principal Investigator: Sheath, Robert
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1992
Summary: The researcher and his team will survey streams for macroscopic algae, and relate their distribution to various physical and chemical characteristics, biomes and drainage basins. They will also set up a seasonal study of the physiological adaptations of macroalgae to the harsh conditions of tundra streams. As well, a widespread seaweed will be collected for comparison with other populations to d...

Arctic Fieldwork, 1992
Principal Investigator: Beyens, L.
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1987
Summary: In the vicinity of Cambridge Bay the researcher hopes to gain more insight in the biogeography and ecology of unicellulars, i.e. diatoms and testate amoebae. A small collection of samples of terrestrial and aquatic material will be undertaken....

Licence #2740
Principal Investigator: Kristensen, John
Licensed Year(s): 1982
Summary: As part of aquatic habitat and biological studies to sample fish, invertebrates, benthic stream vegetation tissue and water as well as to document aquatic habitat. Heavy Metal analysis will be carried out on the water, benthic sediments and plant tissue samples....
