Impacts from climate change on berry productivity in the Canadian Arctic: Integrating community participation with science
Principal Investigator: Henry, Greg H R
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The main objective of the Berry Project is to establish a long-term community-based monitoring program in arctic communities using culturally important berry species as indicators of climate change. The project’s main objectives for the Daring Lake Tundra Science Camp are to bring awareness to the effects of climate change and to expand environmental stewardship. These goals can be achieved by del...

ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into regio...

Improving Habitat Connectivity to Enhance Productive Capacity of Arctic Freshwater Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Tonn, William
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this project are 1) to study the freshwater ecology, hydrology, and hydraulics of small lakes and streams in the Lac de Gras basin before habitat modification; 2) to monitor the changes in ecosystem productive capacity resulting from habitat modifications designed to increase habitat connectivity and fish passage; and 3) to assess the effectiveness of such habitat modifications t...

Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) System Study - Part 1 (Ship-based research)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: The Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) system study is designed to examine the importance of climate processes in changing the nature of a flaw lead system and the Arctic marine environment in the Northern Hemisphere, and the effect these changes will have on the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, carbon fluxes, and greenhouse gases. Using the Canadian Research Icebreaker (CCGS Amundsen), the team ...

Lookout Pond Fish Study - 2003
Principal Investigator: Mercredi, Jayda
Licensed Year(s): 2003
Summary: The objective of this project is to determine whether Lookout Pond, at the Ekati Diamond Mine site, is a fish bearing water body. Should any fish be caught, they will be released back into Lookout Pond and the project will be terminated. Fish capture me...

Pelzer Pond Fish Study - 2003
Principal Investigator: Butler, Helen
Licensed Year(s): 2003
Summary: The objective of this project is to determine if Pelzer Pond, at the Ekati Diamond Mine site, is a fish bearing water body. Previous fishing efforts conducted as part of a baseline study in 1999 indicated that there were no fish in the pond. The resear...

Late Quaternary hydrological and climatic history of the lower MacKenzie River basin
Principal Investigator: Beierle, Brandon
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: The research team will obtain sediment cores from a series of lakes near Reindeer Station and Inuvik for the purpose of reconstructing the hydrological, climatological and geomorphic history of the lower Mackenzie River basin. The research will require fieldwork between 15 April and 25 April. Research will involve the development of a high-resolution paleoenvironmental record based on lake sedime...

Desperation Pond and Carrie Pond Fish Transfer Program
Principal Investigator: Armstrong, Allison
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The capture and processing of fishes, including biological data collection, sample analysis, and recording of field data are the responsibility of BHP based on DFO approved methods described herein. The Project Biologist will be at site during crew training, to participate in the collection of data and to ensure the quality of data. The Project Biologist will also be responsible for collating an...

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: The long-term goal of this research is to develop a model of the interacting biogeochemical and hydrologic processes that control the nutrient balance and primary productivity of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta region, and ultimately, a more general model for lakes associated with the flood plains and deltas of major world rivers. Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre will consist of field and lab...
