Characterization of permafrost cores from the Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Corridor, NWT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Alvarez, Alejandro
Licensed Year(s): 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4610. The objectives of this study are to: 1) evaluate the geologic setting including geochemistry, and radiocarbon ages to establish a regional history of the area; 2) investigate the geologic setting of multiple buried ice bodies; and 3) develop a geologic map along the southern Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway (ITH) highlighti...


Tlicho All-Season Road
Principal Investigator: Walmsley, Caroline
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4587. The objective is to conduct monitor to ensure that the project is overall compliant with the environmental permit and approval conditions and requirements. Water monitoring at water crossing locations will be required for any in-water construction and where there is potential for entrainment of sediments. This inc...


Radar Satellite Observations of Lake Ice Breakup and Freeze-up
Principal Investigator: Drouin, Hugo
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4588. This project aims to evaluate and develop the utility of Canada’s future RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM) (launch June 2019) for the monitoring of lake ice breakup and freeze-up. RCM-type radar images will be simulated using data from Canada’s current radar satellite – that is - RADARSAT-2. Validation data in the ...


ITH Metal Chemistry
Principal Investigator: Gammon, Paul R
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4544. The objectives of this research are: 1) To investigate the environmental chemistry of the borrow pits and immediate surrounding areas to determine what, if any, environmental risk do the elevated concentrations represent; 2) To investigate the environmental chemistry of an undisturbed area around the Inuvik to Tukto...


Mechanical and thermal design of embankments built on permafrost
Principal Investigator: Doré, Guy
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4562. The main objective is to develop a practical method for the mechanical and thermal design of embankments built on permafrost based on the properties of the active layer and of the permafrost as well as the loading conditions. The development of decision-making tools to select the optimal course and the optimal embankm...


Pine Point Project
Principal Investigator: Drolet, Andree
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4582. These studies are to support upcoming regulatory applications for the Pine Point Project being developed by Pine Point Mining Limited (PPML). The additional baseline studies include but are not limited to surface water quality and quantity, groundwater water quality, aquatic environment monitoring, fish and fish ha...


Taltson Twin Gorges Hydro Generating Facility Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program (AEMP) 2019
Principal Investigator: Miller, Matthew
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4565. The objective of this project is to conduct Aquatic Effects Monitoring. This will include three parts: 1) Riparian Habitat and Fish Usage Assessment. This is a study to monitor the trends and fluctuations of the aquatic environment along the riparian zones within the Taltson River from Nonacho Lake to Twin Gorges ...


Con Mine 2019 Supplemental Benthic Invertebrate Sampling Study
Principal Investigator: Irving, Elaine
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4574. The objective is to sample benthic invertebrates in Jackfish Bay (exposure area) and Kam Bay (reference area), to confirm benthic results from 2018 and determine if treated Con Mine effluent is affecting the benthic community in Jackfish Bay. Benthic invertebrate samples will be collected at five stations in each ...


Wetland status, change, and seasonal inundation dynamics for assessing the vulnerability of waterfowl habitat within the ABoVE study domain
Principal Investigator: French, Nancy H
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4543. The overarching project goal is to characterize changes in waterfowl habitat using remote sensing approaches. The first objective is to create wetland type and surface inundation products (maps) for the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) boreal region. The second objective is to assess the efficacy of remo...


Fate of heavy metals in lagoon and wetland wastewater treatment systems and quantification of relative impacts to downstream aquatic systems
Principal Investigator: Jamieson, Rob
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4511. The overall objective of this study is improved understanding of heavy metals in Sewage Disposal Facilities (SDFs) and Solid Waste Disposal Facilities (SWDFs) in the NWT. The proposed study aims to answer the following questions: 1) What is the existing treatment capacity of SDFs in NWT for heavy metals? 2) Are SDFs “...
