Investigating the seasonality of subarctic lakes in a changing climate using satellite & field data
Principal Investigator: Kheyrollah Pour, Homa
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5335. This proposed research is directed at understanding the impact of current/future climate warming on subarctic lake ecosystems. The aim is to explore the relationship of seasonal lake ice growth/ablation and water quality across a wide range of lake characteristics (size, volume, productivity, catchment characteristics...


Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5320. The objectives of this project are to improve the understanding of methane cycling in Mackenzie Delta lakes and how it is affected by the changing water levels and to decipher the impact of water level changes on the ability of the Mackenzie Delta to affect riverine carbon and nutrient flow to the ocean. Improve un...


Monitoring cumulative effects to water quality: An NWT Pilot Study
Principal Investigator: Chin, Krista
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5328. The objective of this project is to collect water quality data from regionally-representative lakes that can inform resource management decisions on cumulative impacts within the Northwest Territories (NWT). Using a computer program the research team will select 30 lakes within the Daring Lake area based on expect...


Terrain factors influencing the water quality of peatland streams along the Inuvik-to-Tuktoyaktuk Highway
Principal Investigator: Hille, Erika C
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5295. The objective of this project is to examine the oxygen (d18O) and hydrogen (d2H) isotopic compositions of stream water and precipitation for 11 peatland stream watersheds along the Inuvik-to-Tuktoyaktuk Highway (ITH). This information will be used to understand the hydrology of the contributing watershed. In particula...


Permafrost slumping and land-water connections on the Peel Plateau
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5249. The objective of this research is to understand how permafrost slumping increases the mobilization of carbon, nutrients, and toxins (mercury) from land to water, and the effects of this transport on stream ecosystems and the global carbon cycle. Over the next several years, the research team plan to measure stream che...


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...


Ekati Diamond Mine
Principal Investigator: Pacholski, Laura J
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5107. The main objectives of the field work for 2022 will be to determine if the Ekati Diamond Mine is having an effect on the surrounding aquatic environment, wildlife, and air quality, and to provide baseline data for areas where mine development may occur in the future. In winter, water samples will be collected unde...


The Great Bear Lake ice thickness and water quality observations under current and future climates (2022-2025)
Principal Investigator: Kheyrollah Pour, Homa
Licensed Year(s): 2022
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5184. This project aims to reconstruct trends in ice phenology using remotely-sensed and ground-based observations and collective memories of land-based and in-lake changes by communities living along the shoreline of Great Bear Lake (GBL) to characterize the inter-annual variability of ice formation in the lake and determi...


Alberta-Northwest Territories Transboundary Fish Monitoring Program: Slave River
Principal Investigator: Cunada, Chris
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2020 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5149. The objectives of this project are to collect additional samples for fish health and fish contaminant levels, and to track their status over time to assess ecosystem health and provide an indication of change or stress in the environment. The research team will be sampling the same species of fish that were investi...


A Program to Evaluate Changing Northern Lake Ice Regimes
Principal Investigator: Dibike, Yonas
Licensed Year(s): 2022 2021 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.5155. The objective of this project is to complete 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 pene...
