Modified Phase II Environmental Site Assessment F-36 Wellsite
Principal Investigator: Miller, Samantha
Licensed Year(s): 2003 2002
Summary: The environmental assessment of the wellsite and the associated facilities may include 1) a walk around of the lease area to identify additional environmental issues if any; 2) a modified Phase II Assessment (including assessing the areas of the glycol,...

Devon Canada Corporation - Physical Oceanography, Geotechnical Parameters, Ice Environment, Coastal Process and Marine Water Quality for the Proposed Beaufort Sea Offshore Drilling Program.
Principal Investigator: Evans, Kevin
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: The physical oceanography of the Beaufort Sea work will involve the identification and review of existing physical oceanographic data, a summary of this information and the application of this information within the context of the assessment and protecti...

Devon Canada Corporation - Fish, Plankton & Benthic Communities Study for the Proposed Beaufort Sea Offshore Drilling Program within the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Evans, Kevin
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: Research program on the fish, plankton and benthic communities. Potential effects of the drilling program on benthos include effects of chemical contaminants from drilling fluid wastes on the benthic community and hence the food web, and loss/change in b...

Devon Canada Corporation - Air Quality and Noise Studies Program for the proposed Beaufort Sea Offshore Drilling Program
Principal Investigator: Evans, Kevin
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: The issues to be addressed in the emissions and air impact assessment portion of the project include: 1) adequacy of baseline emissions, air quality, meteorological and climatological data, as well as air quality and deposition monitoring data, for the B...

Long term fate of oil on an arctic beach
Principal Investigator: Sergy, Gary A.
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: During the period of 1980-83, scientific investigations were conducted at Cape Hatt in order to assess the fate of spilled oil and its effects on the environment. In addition, data was collected to determine how effective the clean-up activities were in removing the oil from the environment. This short visit to the oil spill site is part of a long-term monitoring project that will continue to as...

Canol Pipeline environmental study
Principal Investigator: Reimer, K.J.
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The Environmental Sciences Group has been requested by Indian and Northern Affairs to conduct an environmental study of the Canol Pipeline. The study will identify contaminants (especially hydrocarbons) along the Canol Trail associated with the construction and startup of the pipeline. Where spills are evident, data will be collected on soils, water, vegetation and stream invertebrates to determ...

Studies of the environmental effects of disturbances in the subarctic (SEEDS)
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The research will continue to monitor the effects of disturbance to a site 10 km north of Fort Norman. Trees were cleared and the soil was trenched in 1985 and 1986, and crude oil was spilled in 1988. The researchers are monitoring air and soil temperatures, wind speed, moisture, water movement, permafrost and snow characteristics, plants and animals in order to understand how the ecosystem resp...

Influence of petroleum contamination on soil thermal properties
Principal Investigator: Winnicky, Kim
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: In this study, oil spill sites will be identified and information will be collected on the vegetation, soil and amount of surface oil present. Five soil cores from the sample sites will be collected and analyzed for oil concentrations as well as used for experimentation in order to assess soil thermal properties. The researcher will drive to the study site (Mile 222 on the Canol Road) from Ross ...

Beaufort Sea Oily Waste Disposal Sites
Principal Investigator: Dickins, David F.
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The researcher and his team will use a short list of the most promising locations identified in previous work to guide the researchers during the field survey. The survey will consist of airborne video, and ground observations followed by meetings in Inuvik with concerned government agencies, and community representatives....

Re-evaluation of Disturbance Experiments in the Lower Mackenzie Region, NWT
Principal Investigator: Wein, Ross
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1989 1988 1987
Summary: In the early 1970's, several test plots were established to see what happens when the plants and soil are disturbed or removed by fire, oil spills, and vehicles. Dr. Wein and two students will be re-visiting these sites to document how the plants have recovered since that time....
