Reclamation Research and Closure Plan for Pine Point
Principal Investigator: Robinson, Cindy
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: In accordance with the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board (MVWLB) Guidelines, the overarching closure goal for former mine sites is to return the site and affected areas to viable, and wherever practicable, self-sustaining ecosystems that are compatible with a healthy environment and with human activities. To meet this closure goal, companies must demonstrate that a site is physically stable, c...


Understanding the Interactions between Wildfire Disturbance, Landscape Hydrology and Post-Fire Recovery in Boreal-Taiga Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Bourgeau-Chavez, Laura L.
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The overall goal of the research is to improve understanding of the controls and impacts of a changing climate on the vulnerability and resiliency of boreal-taiga ecosystems to wildfire. This is being addressed through field sampling and process-based ecological and hydrological modeling of the 2014-2016 wildfires of southern NWT. To conduct the proposed research, the research team will addres...


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 ...


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...


Capitalizing on long-term experimental manipulations to understand and predict arctic terrestrial ecosystem responses to climate warming
Principal Investigator: Grogan, Paul
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: 1) to determine the biogeochemical and ecological significance of our discovery that mesic tundra plant growth can be co-limited by nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P); 2) to predict the likely impacts of not just climate change, but also declining caribou and other mammalian herbivory, on tundra deciduous and evergreen shrub abundances; and, 3) to evaluate...


Inuvik High Point Wind Project - Vegetation and Rare Plant Survey
Principal Investigator: Sullivan, Grant
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The three objectives of this project are to: 1) document baseline conditions of vegetation communities and rare plant species present at the High Point site; 2) evaluate potential Project-related effects on rare plants, traditional use plants and vegetation communities within the High Point site; and, 3) develop mitigation measures to minimize or eliminate potential Project-related effects to ...


A Multi-scale Assessment of Cumulative Impacts in the Northern Mackenzie Basin
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: Objective 1: To use satellite imagery (Landsat, QuickBird, InSAR, etc.) to document the rate and extent of landscape change (slumps, subsidence, vegetation change, etc.) in the northern Mackenzie Basin. To quantify landscape disturbances and vegetation regeneration patterns since 1985 the research team will obtain Landsat satellite images that will provide reflectance measurements covering a 1...


Northern Native Seed Development Field Trials
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this sub-project is to continue assessing the performance of native plants which were seeded and transplanted into field plots in 2006 and 2007. The research team intend to collect data regarding winter survival, seedling emergence, and overall plant vigor and productivity in order to assess each species' and collection's suitability for use in land reclamation in the NWT. The ...


Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, NWT
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Permafrost landforms are shrinking in response to climate warming. The researchers want to measure the amount of change each year and to measure the temperature of the permafrost year-round. In addition they want to measure the rate of plant recovery on disturbed areas resulting from the CANOL Project (1942-45). Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan ...


Diamond Mine Reclamation in the NWT: Substrates, Soil Amendments and Native Plant Community Development
Principal Investigator: Naeth, M. Anne
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2009 2008 2005
Summary: The objectives of this research are to: 1. Native shrub establishment: Determine the effect of season of seeding/planting on shrub establishment and survival. 2. Effect of microtopography: Determine the effect of microsites (boulders, rocks, soil mounds and pockets) on plant emergence and establishment, as well as how they influence soil structure. 3. Effect of stockpiled topsoil: Investigate t...
