Wind Energy Monitoring at High Point
Principal Investigator: Dares, Matthew J
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to continue to measure the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point (approximately 6 km northeast of the Inuvik airport). This is part of an alternative energy study for the Inuvik area. Two full years of wind measurements and an economic analysis will be necessary to confirm the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point site. The study ...

Wind Energy Monitoring at Storm Hills: 2012-2014
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to measure the wind energy potential at Storm Hills for two years, as part of an alternative energy study for the Inuvik area. Wind data will be collected using an existing infrastructure (New North Networks tower) at the site. Two full years of wind measurements and an economic analysis will be necessary to confirm this prediction and the viab...

Stratigraphy of the Misty Creek Embayment
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: This is a Masters of Science research project aimed at understanding the geological evolution of a deep-marine environment that existed in the northern Mackenzie Mountains between 500 and 450 million years ago. The project team will establish small 2-3 person camps on or near a mountainside where we already know, based on previous work, that the rocks they are interested in will be exposed. Eac...

Northern Native Plant Development in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Seccombe-Hett, Pippa
Licensed Year(s): 2006
Summary: The main activities in this program are: 1) forming a project steering committee involving industry, aboriginal groups and government; 2) identifying plant species suitable for revegetation; 3) developing practices for commercial production; and 4) identifying employment opportunities. Seed collection will be carried out in late August through to mid-September. Sites will be accessed by boat an...

Structural Geology of the Jackson Lake Formation.
Principal Investigator: Martel, Edith
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be transported from Yellowknife by aircraft, and will travel by small boat in the field. Samples (fist-sized chunks of rock) will be collected with a hammer, and returned to the laboratory for detailed physical and chemical analysis. Field camps will be low impact, and will be occupied by only 2 persons at a time. All human waste will be buried, all non-burnable garbage w...

Developing Sustainable Non-timber Forest Product Business Opportunities in the GSA
Principal Investigator: Boxall, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2001 2000
Summary: The distribution and abundance of some potential non-timber forest products (berries) will be assessed based on the results of community interviews and field studies. The number of berries in various forest stands in the Gwich'in Settlement Area will be quantified. No berries will be picked. Berries will be quantified by counting by hand. Sites for berry counting will be accessed by boat or road....

Phase 3 - Seaweed Commercialization Project: To Inventory and Test Harvest Seaweeds Found in the Whale Cove Area.
Principal Investigator: Copland, Ian
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: Kelp resource assessment work will involve sampling/surveying to determine the relative distribution and abundance of kelp within the Whale Cove area. Additional sampling/surveying will be conducted during the West Hudson Bay test Fishery under supervision of the Dept. of Economic Development and Tourism. Experimentation with kelp farming and various processing techniques such as air drying, wil...

Qualitative Assessment of Local Terrestrial Plants and Identification of Potential Commercial Uses.
Principal Investigator: Copland, Elizabeth
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: Samples of plants will be collected by local residents and identified, some of which may have to be sent away for identification. Elders will be used as resource people to determine possible traditional uses of the plants. The researcher will also experiment with the various land plants to develop appropriate products. If a suitable product can be developed then each plant will be analyzed for ...

Regional Bedrock Mapping Studies In the District of Keewatin
Principal Investigator: Tella, S.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1992
Summary: Bedrock mapping will take place through daily foot traverses Bedrock geological information will be collected to produce geological maps. This will be done in order to assess the economic potential of the region....

Granitic pegmatites of the Canadian Cordillera
Principal Investigator: Groat, Lee A.
Licensed Year(s): 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers will continue their study, begun in 1993, on the pegmatites found in the Selwyn Mountains and other western Canadian locations. Pegmatites contain rare elements such as lithium, beryllium, rubidium, niobium, cesium and talalum. This study will result in a summary of information on pegmatites, including detailed information on their classification, origins and economic potential....
