Marine Geohazard and Environmental Studies in the Southern Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Côté, Michelle
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The goals of this research are to ascertain the formation of marine pockmarks, which are circular depressions on the sea floor thought to have formed from the release of methane gas. The hypothesis is that these features are actively releasing gas to the atmosphere and that they are formed from degrading or thawing offshore permafrost. The research team intend to document the seabed characteris...

City of Yellowknife Gold Project
Principal Investigator: Campbell, Joseph W
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: Follow-up on exploration activity associated with Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board land use permit MV2014C0005 on Terrax Minerals Inc. City of Yellowknife Gold Project. Work would include initial environmental baseline work, and expansion of research programs to establish sufficient study for possible future Environmental Impact Assessment of potential mine development if exploration activiti...

Fish and Fish Habitat Study at Norman Wells Operations (Artificial Islands), Norman Wells, Northwest Territories (NWT)
Principal Investigator: Taylor, Scott
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of the assessment are to: • characterize the fish habitat around the shoreline and nearshore areas of the artificial islands; and • assess current use and suitability of these areas for use by fish species likely present in the Mackenzie River at Norman Wells. The surveys will be based out of Imperial’s Norman Wells Operations and will be centered on the artificial islands the...

Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Merzouk, Anissa
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The 2017 field program constitutes a subset of activities of the ArcticNet’s marine-based research program that has been conducted in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (IRS) within the framework of Scientific Research Licenses awarded for 2009-2013, for 2014-2015 and for 2016-2017. Planned activities will focus on the recovery and deployment of oceanographic moorings as part of ArcticNet’s Long...

Thetis Bay Bathymetric Survey and Benthic Sampling
Principal Investigator: Wolf, Calvin
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to document the physical condition of the seabed lease following the removal of the Tarsiut Caissons. The project also includes sampling benthic populations in the disturbed and undisturbed areas of the lease. This information can be used as a benchmark for possible future study of the effects of natural processes in restoring the footprint of the caissons. A bathy...

Addendum to ArcticNet licence # 15213
Principal Investigator: Levesque, Keith R
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The ArcticNet marine-based research program is carried out from the Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen. The multi-year sampling program is developed around 3 main research components: 1) a meteorology, ocean & sea ice component; 2) a marine resources and environment component; and 3) a geology/bathymetry component. 1) Meteorology, ocean & sea ice component The general objective of thi...

Bathymetry, Aquatics and Fisheries Data Collection for the Potential North Diversion of Baker Creek, Giant Mine Remediation Project
Principal Investigator: Sibbald, Carey
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The primary objectives of this research program are to collect baseline data on the bathymetry and depth contours, water chemistry, limnological profiles, sediments, and benthic biota, fish presence and habitat. The Bathymetry field program will be conducted in August 2014, prior to the Aquatics and Fisheries field programs. Data from the bathymetry field program is required to finalize samplin...

Bathymetry Surveys - Mackenzie Valley Fibre Link
Principal Investigator: Sibbald, Carey
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective of the field program is to obtain necessary bathymetric data to complete volumetric calculations to determine the maximum winter water withdrawal volumes from potential water sources. As the field program will primarily be focused on the Fort Good Hope – Dempster Highway portion, the field crew (consisting of two people, plus a bear monitor) will mobilize out of Inuvik and/or Fort...

Lake Bathymetry Survey for the Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway, 2013
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objective of the survey is to gather lake bathymetry data in support of estimating water volumes required for regulatory approval for winter water extraction. This work will be completed following the commitments of the Hamlet of Tuktoyaktuk, Town of Inuvik, and the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT), as found in the Environmental Impact Statement for Construction of the Inuvik to ...

Tarsiut Caissons - Removal and Remediation Plan
Principal Investigator: Marshall, John J
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this project at Thetis Bay is to ensure there is no unforeseen debris in the water around the caissons prior to moving. The objective at Tuktoyaktuk is to see if the caissons could be moved close enough to shore to offer a benefit to mitigate shore erosion. One small bathymetry vessel would be used in the program and one large Northern Transportation Company (NTCL) mainline tu...
