Geothermal potential of the Southern Mackenzie Region
Principal Investigator: Raymond, Jasmin
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4958. The research proposed in this application aims to reduce the consumption of petroleum products used for heating. Indeed, the objective of the proposed project is to develop resources and advance the maturity of technologies associated with the direct use of geothermal energy in Canada. What is targeted is the direct u...


Environmental Assessment for the Pine Point Mine
Principal Investigator: Mason, Kristine
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4731. To document existing environmental conditions at Pine Point to support upcoming development applications. Hydrology studies include the measurement of selected lake inflow and outflow and stream profile through field surveys, and installation of data loggers to continually monitor lake levels through the open-water...


Influence of changing active-layer thickness on permafrost peatland trace gas exchanges and carbon balance
Principal Investigator: Sonnentag, Oliver
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2019 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2013
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5221. The project is the continuation of year-round eddy covariance measurements of carbon, water and energy fluxes at Scotty Creek, established in 2013. The key methodology is tower-mounted micrometeorological measurements around the eddy covariance technique using an open-path infra-red gas analyzer and a sonic anemome...


Quantifying carbon fluxes and budgets of boreal forest-tundra landscapes under the influence of rapidly changing permafrost regimes
Principal Investigator: Sonnentag, Oliver
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5220. The project of the present application is the continuation of year-round eddy covariance measurements of carbon, water and energy fluxes at Trail Valley Creek and Havikpak Creek, established in 2013. The key methodology is tower-mounted micrometeorological measurements around the eddy covariance technique using an ...


NWT-wide Community based Water Quality Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Somers, Gila L
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4762. Water Quality Monitoring equipment is deployed at over 40 sites across the NWT to address community concerns. Community members were trained to use the following equipment: • Sondes: sit in the water and measure basic water quality parameters every 2 hours for up to 3 months. Analysis undertaken at Environment and...


Tectonic studies of the Rae craton and flanking orogenic systems
Principal Investigator: Thiessen, Eric
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5095. This research will be guided by three objectives: 1) determine the largest possible contribution of mantle-derived heat sources; 2) establish a modern structural and tectono-metamorphic framework; and 3) evaluate evidence for mantle-derived heat input. Studies will involve field observations and targeted small-vol...


The Nonacho Group Sedimentary Rocks
Principal Investigator: Fischer, Beth J
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5098. The research team would like to know the age of each formation of the Nonacho sedimentary rocks. Is the oldest formation a lot older than the youngest, or only a bit older? The team would like to know more about the sources of the Nonacho sediments. What types of bedrock were eroded to make those sediments? Did rivers...


Limnology of the East Arm of Great Slave Lake
Principal Investigator: McLennan, Donald S
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5173. The overall objective of the proposed study is to continue to study the physical limnology of Christie Bay in the East Arm of Great Slave Lake, NWT, Canada to develop a new scientific understanding of this unique area and to support studies of the sustainability of fish populations. All lake measurements will be ma...


Aquatic ecosystems in the Fort Good Hope area as indicators of environmental change
Principal Investigator: Comte, Jerome
Licensed Year(s): 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4823. The purpose of this work is to identify indicators of aquatic ecosystem health i.e., organisms such as bacteria, phytoplankton and invertebrates that are sensitive to environmental forces and play key role in aquatic food webs, to monitor and predict the response of aquatic ecosystems to environmental changes (e.g. pe...


Permafrost and climate change, western Arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5214. The objective is to continue monitoring change in ground temperatures, seasonal thaw depth (active layer), subsidence of the ground, change in vegetation, and thawing of ice wedges. The research team compare these data with the results of computer forecasts of how things may change with climate warming. The team hope ...
