Impacts of Natural and Anthropogenic Disturbances on the Aquatic Health of Tundra Lakes in the Upland Region Northeast of Inuvik, NT
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this project are to examine the long term effects of thaw slumping on the water quality of water running off the landscape to the lakes and the lakes themselves, using data collected over the 10 year study period; and to examine the effects of tundra fire on the water quality of water running off the landscape to the lakes and the lakes themselves. This study will focus on 10 ...


Water Quality Monitoring in Tlicho Region, NWT, Canada
Principal Investigator: Pacunayen, Jessica L
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The overarching goal for this project is to understand how decision-making bodies can make the best use of water quality data from pre-existing water monitoring programs collected by various agencies within the Tlicho region now and in the future. In order to achieve this goal, the Principal Investigator (PI) plans to understand how decision-making bodies within the Tlicho region currently use wat...


Northern Water Futures Baseline Environmental Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Baltzer, Jennifer L
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The overall objective is to understand existing and potential impacts of climate change and resource development in the Sahtú region on four key aspects: 1) the landscape, 2) vegetation, 3) water resources, and 4) aquatic ecosystems. Specifically, the research team seek to understand: a) terrain instability due to permafrost thaw, especially around communities and culturally-important areas; b) ve...


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...


Development of a Biological Monitoring Program to Detect Change in Stream Health Along the Dempster–Inuvik–Tuktoyaktuk-Corridor
Principal Investigator: Culp, Joseph
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The main goal of this project are to establish a stream biomonitoring program along the Dempster–Inuvik–Tuktoyaktuk-Corridor (DITC) to understand the current environmental conditions associated with past and newly developed road infrastructure. Specific objectives are: 1) to establish a stream biomonitoring program for the Inuvik – Tuktoyaktuk Highway (ITH); 2) to directly involve local stak...


A monitoring program for Frame Lake
Principal Investigator: Gray, Derek K
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: We are planning to establish a long-term monitoring program in Frame Lake to monitor water quality, zooplankton, and benthic Invertebrates. Water quality probes will be set up at a central monitoring point on the lake. A buoy will be anchored to the lake bottom and the probes will be attached to the buoy. The probes will monitor temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, and conductivity levels near th...


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 ...


Howards Pass Access Road (HPAR) Proposed 2019 Baseline Programs
Principal Investigator: Morison, Stephen R
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Proposed surface water and sediment quality and quantity programs involves two rounds of field sampling proposed in mid-July to early August and in late September 2019, to capture typical summer stream flows and low stream flow conditions. Each field program may take between eight to ten days. The objectives of the programs are to confirm and update the fluvial geomorphic classification of each st...


A Program to Evaluate Changing Northern Lake Ice Regimes
Principal Investigator: Dibike, Yonas
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016
Summary: The objectives of this project are to complete an on ice snow depth, ice thickness and composition survey along with collection under ice core water quality information. Sample locations from previous years are located using a handheld GPS. On ice, snow depth is measured using a tape measure. An ice auger is used to penetrate the ice cover and evaluate if white ice is present. If present, the d...


Investigating the water quality of runoff from different terrain types
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The objectives are: 1) to examine how the water quality of streams varies spatially and determine what drives these differences (i.e., latitude, vegetation, surficial geology); and, 2) to examine how the water quality of streams varies temporally and determine what/how seasonal changes in water flow control water quality. The research team will collect water samples from a suite of study site...
