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...


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...


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...


The effect of permafrost slumping on carbon delivery from land to water
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The objective of this study is to understand how permafrost slumping increases the mobilization of carbon from land to water, and the effects of this transport on stream ecosystems and the global carbon cycle. This summer, the research team will measure streamwater chemistry at a series of sites draining from the Peel Plateau, near where they enter the Mackenzie Delta. At one site (Stony Creek), t...


Kennady North Diamond Project
Principal Investigator: Panayi, Damian
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this project is to document existing environmental conditions, in preparation for future regulatory applications Various environmental studies will be initiated each year, according to budgets and information priorities. Hydrology studies include the measurement of selected lake inflow and outflow and stream profile through field surveys, and installation of data loggers to ...


Beaufort Sea Coastal Restoration – Exploring the Potential for Using Indigenous Plant Species to Revegetate Coastline Affected by Permafrost Thaw Slumping
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The objectives include: 1) Creating a series of maps showing the thaw slump activity along the Beaufort Sea Coast near Tuktoyaktuk; 2) developing detailed water, vegetation, and ground temperature maps of the study sites using drones; 3) examining the effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of landscape-level runoff to the Beaufort Sea; 4) examining the effects of coastal erosion and thaw ...


Impacts of permafrost thaw on hydrology and water resources
Principal Investigator: Quinton, William L.
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: Understanding the ecology and hydrology of ecosystems with thawing permafrost is a major challenge. To meet this, the research team will develop new knowledge on the eco-hydrology of the major ecosystems (i.e. bogs, fens, peat plateaus) needed to develop new science-based tools to predict the future supply for the next 50 years. The specific scientific objectives are: 1) Develop fundamental knowl...


Nunataryuk WP4: Satellite tracking of the organic matter in the Mackenzie Delta, impact of climate change on permafrost thaw
Principal Investigator: Babin, Marcel
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The specific objectives of this project are: 1) to document trends in export of coastal, riverine and subterranean dissolved and particulate organic matter and carbon into the Arctic Ocean; 2) to determine their fate and related processes (origin and age, transport, physical, chemical, and biological transformation) in coastal waters and estuarine sediment; and 3) to assess the impacts of thes...


Ekati Engineering and Environmental Monitoring Programs
Principal Investigator: Pacholski, Laura J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The main objectives of the field work for 2019 will be: 1) to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment and air quality; and 2) to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected under ice using a 2.5L Niskin (a cylindrical PVC water sampler). During the week of sprin...


Hydrology of High Latitude Watersheds
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: The objectives of this project are to develop improved understanding of, and ability to predict, snowcover formation and melt, as well as stream discharge in northern regions; toconsider the integrated effect of climate on vegetation, snow, permafrost, streamflow, and lakes; and, to develop improved predictive models. These will allow a better understanding of the impact of climate change and/or n...
