Remotely Piloted Aircraft Based Research
Principal Investigator: Rogers, Marty W
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The goal of this project are to safely collect high-resolution images utilizing remotely piloted aircraft, producing image products to allow for a better understanding of the road infrastructure and nearby habitat, and of the Beluga Whale population in the near-shore Tarium Niryutait Marine Protected Area. Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), based at Inuvik Airport will be used to fly abo...

Satellite Monitoring for Assessing Resource Development’s Impact on Bathurst Caribou (SMART)
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licensed Year(s): 2015
Summary: We have two specific objectives over the next three years: 1) to improve the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the zone of influence (ZOI) from resource development disturbed areas in the Bathurst caribou habitat, and their relationships with caribou habitat use and productivity, by integrating traditional knowledge, field surveys, and remote sensing technology; and, 2) to investig...

Baseline Monitoring of Arctic Vegetation and Snow Changes over the Bathurst Caribou Habitat using Satellite Remote Sensing and Community-based Field Observations
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: The goals of this research project are: 1. To fill the information gap on Bathurst caribou summer range conditions using satellite remote sensing data and community-based ground vegetation monitoring 2. To develop a cumulative impact assessment method that makes cumulative impact assessment possible even if data are incomplete and provides timely feedback for guiding the refinement of monitoring...

Investigating the cumulative effects of environmental change and human activity in the Tathlina watershed
Principal Investigator: Laidlaw, Shawn
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The purpose of this project is to: 1) coordinate monitoring and research efforts in the watershed between the community, government, and universities; 2) understand current aquatic health of the watershed using water quality, macroinvertebrates, aquatic furbearers and fish as indicators of ecosystem health; 3) understand historical environmental change and contaminant loading in the watershed u...

Mackenzie Valley Highway Project Description Report
Principal Investigator: Johnson, Mary Ann
Licensed Year(s): 2011
Summary: The objective of this project will be to verify baseline environmental information available for the highway route. The field program will focus on a flyover of the proposed highway route to verify the baseline information that is available for potential fish and wildlife habitat as well as plant communities. The environmental field program will be conducted at the same time as the archaeological ...

Bosworth Creek Aquatics and Fisheries Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Blaschuk, Katherine
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: WorleyParsons, on behalf of Imperial Oil, began a benthic invertebrate and fisheries assessment program for the portions of Bosworth Creek adjacent to the Imperial Oil operations in Norman Wells, NWT. The objective of the project is to characterize biophysical conditions in Bosworth Creek in the area surrounding the lower Bosworth Creek Bridge; both upstream and downstream from the location of a f...

Amendment - Hydro-ecological Responses of Arctic Tundra Lakes to Climate Change and Landscape Perturbation
Principal Investigator: Wrona, Frederick J
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The overall objective of this research component is to improve the knowledge on present-day food webs/productivity in small Arctic pond/lake systems, in order to better predict changes that could occur under changing climate. The methodology described below pertains to all new research activities related to this new research component dealing with fish. All other research activities related to ...

Canadian Zinc Corporation – Habitat Compensation Investigation
Principal Investigator: Hamilton, David
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: Several stream crossings along the #1 and #7 highways are expected to be suitable candidates for habitat compensation. Aquatic habitat assessments and fish collections at selected stream crossings need to be conducted to confirm fish species presence or absence upstream and downstream of the crossings, to assess habitat conditions and to evaluate fish passage to assist in the development of a fis...
