NSERC Canadian Lake Pulse Network: more than 660 Canadian lakes sampled over three summers.
Principal Investigator: Huot, Yannick
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objective of this project is to evaluate and compare complex and abundant lake ecosystems. This will be addressed through answering these 4 core questions: 1. Where, by how much and why Canadian lakes have changed during the last centuries? 2. How do taxonomic, molecular and biochemical features of planktonic, benthic and microbial communities change with lake alteration and which ones can...


Health Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Chan, Laurie H. M.
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The Health Effects Monitoring Program is a human biomonitoring study aimed to assess the exposure and health impact of arsenic and other contaminants on the human population of Yellowknife, Ndilo and Dettah in the Northwest Territories, as part of the Giant Mine Remediation Project. The overall objective of the program is to establish current or baseline levels of arsenic exposure among residen...


Beaufort Sea Coastal and Nearshore Geoscience Research 2018
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The primary objective is to provide the means to improve the knowledge of physical conditions in the Arctic coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations and local residents understand mitigate and reduce the impacts of climate driven changes. This research has 3 targeted objectives: 1) to gain a better understanding of coastal permafrost; 2) to provide and updated assessment of ...


Do diversity gradients and wildfires interact to facilitate tree range expansion across a broad latitudinal scale?
Principal Investigator: Reid, Kirsten
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The overarching research goal of this project is to determine what conditions facilitate tree range expansion across the western Canadian boreal-tundra ecotone. Using a biogeographical, multi-trophic level approach, the research team aim to determine: 1. how multi-trophic level species composition changes across the tundra and which conditions dictate these changes; and, 2. the constraints, dri...


Yukon-Northwest Seismic Network: Characterizing Earthquakes and Earth Structures
Principal Investigator: Audet, Pascal
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to continue the detection and characterization of earthquakes occurring within the northern Canadian Cordillera (Mackenzie Mountains) and surrounding areas, which are one the most seismically active areas of Canada; and 2) to study the Earth structures at large depths (0 to 100 km) to understand the formation and evolution of the Cordillera. To this ...


Arctic Borderlands Ecological Knowledge Society - Community Based Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Ashthorn, Heather
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2017 2015 2013 2012 2011 2009 2008 2006
Summary: The goal of this project is to document local experiences of ecological change in the range of the porcupine caribou herd and share that knowledge for co-management. Community monitors will assist in each community and will be trained in Inuvik at the start of the monitoring season. Renewable Resource Council’s (RRCs) and Hunters and Trappers Committees (HTCs) are responsible for choosing a mon...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in lake trout and burbot from Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2016
Summary: This study is continuing to investigate whether contaminant levels are changing in fish in Great Slave Lake which the team have been studying since the early 1990s. The research team will collect lake trout from the Hay River and Lutsel K’e areas. The team will also plan to collect burbot from the Lutsel K’e and Fort Resolution areas of Great Slave Lake, and northern pike from the Fort Resolution ...


The Role of Traditional Knowledge in the Reclamation and Monitoring of Mines in Northern Canada
Principal Investigator: Baydack, Micki
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1) identify the socio-economic predictions made by communities affected by the Diavik Diamond Mining Project; 2) determine the degrees of “accommodation” made in relation to the predicted effects including what measures were taken to mitigate or manage problems created and determine what issues remain unaddressed; and, 3) develop a framework and tool for comm...


Spatial and long-term trends in persistent organic contaminants and metals in fish from the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1) continue to investigate trends in mercury, metals and persistent organic contaminants (POCs) in lake trout harvested from two locations (West Basin near Hay River, East Arm at Lutsel K’e) and burbot harvested from one location (West Basin at Fort Resolution) in Great Slave Lake in 2017 to further extend the long-term (1993-2015: POCs, 1993-2016 mercury a...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Geoscience Research
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The primary objective of this research continues to be driven towards the safe and sustainable industrial and community development of the Beaufort Sea coastal nearshore region. The research provides the means to improve knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and reduce the impacts of natural...
