Establishing a watershed framework for assessing cumulative impacts of development
Principal Investigator: Chin, Krista
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: Objective 1: Build a partnership between government, communities, regulators and researchers to develop a watershed-based cumulative impact study in areas of oil and gas exploration in the Sahtu region. The Sahtu Renewable Resource Board (SRRB) can play an important coordinating role in bringing partners together and working with the communities to determine appropriate engagement in the projec...

Understanding regional variability in soil geochemistry in an area impacted by legacy industrial activity
Principal Investigator: Oliver, Jonathon
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The specific objectives of this research are: 1) to investigate concentrations of arsenic and other elements in regional soils to gain a better understanding of regional baseline soil geochemistry; 2) to determine speciation of arsenic in selected soils from the region with elevated concentrations to determine whether arsenic in soils is from a natural geologic source or is derived from past indus...

NTPC Bluefish Hydro Repairs
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective is to describe the terrestrial and aquatic environment in the Yellowknife River between Prosperous Lake and Bluefish Lake. This may include investigating vegetation, water quality, benthic invertebrate populations, and fish. The results will be used to determine the most suitable means of fish habitat compensation, and to guide mitigation during construction of the new dam for Bluefi...
