Development of a Biological Monitoring Program to Detect Change in Stream Health Along the Dempster–Inuvik–Tuktoyaktuk-Corridor
Principal Investigator: Culp, Joseph
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The main goal of this project are to establish a stream biomonitoring program along the Dempster–Inuvik–Tuktoyaktuk-Corridor (DITC) to understand the current environmental conditions associated with past and newly developed road infrastructure. Specific objectives are: 1) to establish a stream biomonitoring program for the Inuvik – Tuktoyaktuk Highway (ITH); 2) to directly involve local stak...

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...

Ferry Landing Impacts on the Peel and Mackenzie Rivers: Traditional Knowledge Study and Fishery Survey
Principal Investigator: Latta, Alex
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives are to collect Traditional Knowledge (TK) and fish harvest data from each community, and ensure that each community is involved in interpreting the data collected. TK will be sought in relation to the historical use of the fishery resource, observed changes in fish abundance and health over time, observed changes in the river associated with the construction of the ferry landings, a...

Evaluation of Climate Change impacts on Transportation Systems
Principal Investigator: Ford, James D
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: This proposed project will develop critical scientific methods for quantifying transportation vulnerabilities and adaptation opportunities, filling knowledge gaps about transportation vulnerabilities and opportunities for action. Designing and implementing an Arctic vulnerability and adaptation index for transportation systems and infrastructure is crucial to improving the understanding of how ...

Inuvik – Tuktoyaktuk Highway 2013-2014 Geotechnical Investigations Program
Principal Investigator: Patrie, Wayne
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The Government of the Northwest Territories – Department of Transportation (DOT) proposes to conduct geotechnical investigations in the winters of 2013 and 2014. Geotechnical investigations will include drilling of boreholes, sampling and analysis of granular material collected, and installation of thermistor (temperature) cables. The geotechnical investigations are conducted to support design and...

EL462 and EL463 Aggregate and Permafrost Mapping - Geophysical Survey and Confirmatory Drilling
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Ken
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to provide a better understanding of the permafrost under a proposed road right-of-way (ROW) and to delineate potential aggregate deposits. This will include mapping: permafrost distribution, massive ice bodies (including wedge ice), depth to massive ice, lower contacts of massive ice, zones of thermokarst, ice rich sediments (thaw sensitive), active la...

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, to guide mitigation during construction of the new dam for Bluefish H...

Assessment of Fisheries Potential of the Tuktoyaktuk to Source 177 All-Weather Road Impact Area
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objectives of this project are to characterize the habitats and shorelines of the streams that would be crossed by the Tuktoyaktuk to Source 177 all-weather road. The impact area will be recorded and referenced with Global Positioning System (GPS) locations. The information will be transferred to a Geographic Information System (GIS) to complete a habitat map for the area. The Hamlet of T...

Codes and Standards and Climate Change Adaptation in the Canadian North
Principal Investigator: Malcolm, David
Licensed Year(s): 2007
Summary: The purpose of this research is to collect information that will lead to a better understanding of how built environment infrastructure is critical to the provision of services to the residents, industry, and government in the NWT, and how the effects of climate change may impact the provision of these services. A case study based approach forms a central nexus for the project in terms of iden...

Community-Based Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Workshops
Principal Investigator: Ritchie, Douglas G.
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: This project consists of conducting a series of workshops with community governments and residents on the topic of climate change, current and future impacts of climate change on municipal services, as well as possible measures that can be implemented to help communities adapt to climate change. The goal of the workshop is to document concerns, identify areas for further research, and determine po...
