2018 Fisheries and Hydrotechnical Assessments
Principal Investigator: Chiperzak, Doug
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of the fisheries and hydrotechnical assessments is to collect the necessary data to inform the design of new crossing structures to be built. At each crossing location, fish Habitat will be assessed (Gunghi Creek, Hwy 8 km 266.1, and Hwy 8 km 147.0; Oscar Creek and Great Bear River; and, Frank Channel and Behchoko Access Road). Fish habitat will be assessed by using cross-channel...

North Slave Permafrost Study: Characterizing and Predicting Discontinuous Permafrost for Climate Change Adaptation
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Stephen A
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: This activity describes and predicts the occurrence of discontinuous permafrost in the northern Great Slave Lake region to assist in planning, development and maintenance of community and industry infrastructure. Changes in climate are affecting permafrost distribution, temperatures and geotechnical conditions. Different landscapes across the region are exhibiting varying responses to warming. Thi...

Enbridge Pipelines (NW) Inc. Traditional Knowledge Study - Continuation
Principal Investigator: Heck, Darren M
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this project are: a) Inventory of historical and ecological resources in the area; b) past, present and future uses of the area by community residents; c) identification of potential impacts of use of the land use areas supporting access and maintenance (i.e. camps, trails, buffer areas and work areas); and d) provide follow-up mechanism for on-going communication of issues i...

Paleoclimatological assessment of the central Northwest Territories: implications for the long-term viability of the Tibbitt to Contwoyto winter ice road
Principal Investigator: Patterson, R. Tim
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: Through analysis of sediment/water interface samples, freeze cores, and dendrochronology the researchers intend to: i) develop a comprehensive climatic history along a 2° latitudinal gradient in the central NT, variously based on an analysis of freeze cores from lakes along the route of the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road (TCWR); ii) determine the relationship between modern lake catchments an...

Husky Lakes Cabin Owner Information Survey
Principal Investigator: Gordon, James Jr

Of particular interest are community issues and concerns, local knowledge and recommendations with respect to the potential effects of the proposed project. Participants will be asked to discuss their perceptions of the potential effects of the project on community health and wellness, their knowledge of tradi...

Archaeological and Fish Habitat Assessment for the Tuktoyaktuk to Inuvik Highway
Principal Investigator: Krizan, Julia
Licensed Year(s): 2011
Summary: A Fish Habitat Assessment and an Archaeological Assessment are required for the proposed Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk Highway. A Fish Habitat Assessment and an Archaeological Impact Assessment Report will be developed with data obtained from the proposed highway corridor during fall 2011. IMG-Golder Corp. is proposing to carry out a fish habitat and archaeological assessment program along the highway ...

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 ...

Proposed Aklavik West Road and Bridge - Hydrotechnical and Geotechnical Field Investigations
Principal Investigator: Kors-Olthof, Rita I
Licensed Year(s): 2014 2011
Summary: The goals of the hydrotechnical research are to: - learn if there are possible problem areas due to water or ice along the proposed road; - choose the best proposed bridge location so that a new bridge won't wash out like the temporary one does; and - decide on length of bridge so that abutment locations can be chosen for later geotechnical drilling sites. The goals of the geotechnical resea...
