Estimating Aquatic Species Physiological Limits (ASPL) through a Forage Fish Monitoring and Observation (FFMO) program in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR)
Principal Investigator: Steiner, Nadja
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4554. The 3 year project objective is to conduct underwater eco-physiological monitoring in remote Inuvialuit coastal areas in both summer and winter seasons. This will result in critical benchmark data with emphasis on coastal forage fish species during rapid climate change. Another project off-shoot will be a self-suffici...


Dehcho Collective on Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Sioui, Miguel PS
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4512. The overall objective is to generate a fusion of leading-edge scientific and Indigenous knowledge on permafrost, and use it as a basis to co-develop new predictive decision support tools and innovative risk management strategies to inventory and manage permafrost and adapt to permafrost thaw. This program will co-d...


ABEKS - Community Based Ecological Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Ashthorn, Heather
