Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 2003 1998
Summary: This study is based on earlier research conducted by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans which found that fish in many lakes in the Mackenzie River Basin had high mercury concentrations. This study examines the environment in which the fish live in o...


Persistent organic contaminants in the Great Slave Lake ecosystem.
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 1995 1994

This data will allow a better understanding of how fast sediments are deposited on the lake bottom in various regions. Researchers will also collect invertebrates and fish samples as part of an overall study of contaminants in the lake's ecosystem....


Influence of the Slave River on Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: Evans, Marlene S.
Licensed Year(s): 1992
Summary: The Researchers will collect a series of sediment and water samples. These will be analyzed for plant nutrients, concentration of microscopic plant cells, bacteria, suspended solids, dissolved oxygen and organic contaminants. Microscopic animals will also be netted. They will determine the abundance and composition of the animals and conduct experiments to measure their feeding rates and fat cont...
