Beaufort Sea Joint Venture Drilling Program: Tuktoyaktuk TEK Collection Program
Principal Investigator: Goodjohn, Mitchell T.
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2010
Summary: The objective of the Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Socio-Economic data Collection Program for Tuktoyaktuk Harbour (the TEK Program) is to collect baseline data to enhance Imperial Oil Resources Ventures Limited’s (Imperial’s) understanding of the marine environment in Tuktoyaktuk Harbour, harvesting of traditional resources in the harbour and general area around Tuktoyaktuk, and the pattern...

Stratigraphy of the Hyland Group, Selwyn Mountains
Principal Investigator: Turner, Elizabeth C
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: This project seeks to understand the ancient marine environments recorded in these rocks, and thereby to interpret this poorly known, dramatic time in North America’s tectonic evolution. The areas addressed will be those that were briefly described in 1993: 1 location is in Yukon Territory (YT) and 2 are in Northwest Territories (NWT). This work will complement licensed research currently under wa...

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...

Beaufort Shelf Seabed Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Blasco, Steve M
Licensed Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of the seabed mapping program is to conduct a regional survey of the Beaufort shelf. Ice scouring processes, benthic habitats, abandoned artificial islands, pingo-like features, gas seeps, seafloor foundation conditions, and subsea permafrost will be investigated. The Coast Guard vessel CCGS Nahidik will be used as the research platform to conduct offshore acoustic/sonar surveys ...

A Case Study of Husky Lakes Beluga co-management using network analysis
Principal Investigator: Berkes, Fikret
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: This project aims to understand how co-management helps the people of Tuktoyaktuk to deal with environment and resource problems. The researcher hopes to look at the role of the FJMC, and the exchange of knowledge between the Inuvialuit and government scientists. Through meetings with Burton Ayles and Sheila Nasogaluak as well as a joint FJMC/DFO meeting, the Husky Lakes beluga entrapment issu...

Community Engagement in Marine Protected Area (MPA) Planning in the Arctic: Towards an Arctic Network of MPAs
Principal Investigator: Haider, Wolfgang
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application no. 922. The objectives of the research are to describe, evaluate and compare two current MPA projects in the Western and Eastern Canadian Arctic. The research will help communities learn from each other, as well as provide government agencies with suggestions for how to make improvements to MPA processes, based on the experie...

Giardia in Marine Mammals
Principal Investigator: Roach, Pat
Licensed Year(s): 1995
Summary: Samples will be initially evaluated on a presence/absence basis and taken further if warranted. The gene probe analytical technique is new and will be employed for all positive samples. Results will be published in a report format which will be submitted to FJMC to FJMC and the HTC. A paper will also be produced for publication in a refereed Journal....

Study of potential environmental impacts of waste materials in the marine waters near Cambridge Bay
Principal Investigator: Johnston, Laura
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: Samples of sediment, water and different marine species such as fish, marine invertebrates (including sea urchins, clams and crabs), and microscopic organisms will be collected by divers from the underwater dumpsite in Cambridge Bay. These samples will be assessed for contaminants such as heavy metals and PCB's. The study is primarily being conducted to determine if the waste materials of the du...

Trophic dynamics of the microbial community in cold ocean environments
Principal Investigator: Rivkin, Richard
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The proposed research will examine the importance of marine algae and bacteria in the polar food web. This research is similar to previous studies I have conducted which examined food webs in the Atlantic Ocean (off of the coast of Newfoundland) and Antarctica. In Resolute, I will measure the production and growth of natural populations of algae and bacteria under different light, temperature and...

An Assessment of the Environmental Impacts on Strathcona Sound from the Nanisivik Mine
Principal Investigator: d'Entremont, Andre
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researcher will assess the extent of trace metal migration in Strathcona Sound, to determine if this contamination could result in any toxic effects on biota, and to assess the effectiveness of environmental monitoring methods in the high Arctic....
