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...


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...


Benthic Macroinvertebrate Monitoring (Slave and Hay Rivers)
Principal Investigator: Levasseur, Annie
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project is to establish a baseline for benthic invertebrates’ community structure and composition in the transboundary reaches of the Slave and Hay Rivers and to track their status and conditions over time to assess ecosystem health and provide an early warning of change or stress in the environment. The monitoring plan involves selecting and sampling several 500m long re...


De Beers - Gahcho Kué Environmental Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Liu, William X
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objective of the proposed studies is to obtain information on the environment once Project activities commence to determine potential project effects. The proposed studies will include the collection of air quality, geochemistry, hydrology, water and sediment quality, and fish and aquatic resources, dustfall, vegetation and soil information. The studies are designed to monitor the area aro...


Diavik Aquatics Effects Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Wells, David A
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The objective of this project is to revisit fixed sample stations at near-field, mid-field and far-field sites over the course of the year in an effort to determine any seasonal variation that may exist and confirm impact predictions. The Aquatic Effects Monitoring Program (AEMP) Version 3.5 will consist of the following components; Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Dust Deposition; Effluent an...


Con Mine Phase 6 EEM - Periodic Monitoring
Principal Investigator: Irving, Elaine
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2015 2012 2009 2007
Summary: The objective of the study is to carry out the third year of periodic monitoring of fish and benthos at the determined study locations; Jackfish Bay (exposure area), Horseshoe Island Bay (reference area for fish survey) and Kam Bay (reference area for the benthos survey), to determine if treated Con Mine effluent is affecting fish and fish habitat. The study has been designed to replicate the stud...


Environmental Quality at Pine Point
Principal Investigator: Dudley, Judy
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The purpose of the study is to verify baseline conditions within the Pine Point District study area. Field sites will be accessed by truck, on foot, and on ATVs during the ice-free growing season. The study may include analysis of previously disturbed sites to evaluate regeneration and succession, surveys of former mine pits, collection and analysis of surface water and groundwater samples, g...


NATCL Cantung 2017 EEM Program
Principal Investigator: Carson, Richard J
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2015
Summary: The objectives are to evaluate if there are differences in biological parameters among study sites and between years at the Tungsten Mine site; as well as to determine whether observed differences from the most recent (2015) Environmental Effects Monitoring study are still present and whether any differences are the result of mining practices. The study objectives are to evaluate fish health, ...


Discovery Mine (NWT) Year-10 Long-Term Monitoring Program
Principal Investigator: Montgomery, Shelagh
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: The Discovery Mine long term monitoring (LTM) program has as its primary objective to verify the effectiveness of remedial measures at the site. This will be accomplished via a Geotechnical Monitoring and Visual Inspection; Terrestrial Environment Monitoring; Water Quality Monitoring, and Aquatic (fish) Monitoring. As part of the Phase II LTM for the Discovery Mine site, the program addresses i...


Water Ecosystem Monitoring using Earth Observations
Principal Investigator: Chamberland, Joseph
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The research project Water Ecosystems Monitoring using Earth Observation aims to define an Earth Observation (EO) driven monitoring program to provide information towards monitoring environmental indicators of northern ecosystem health. Once the project is done information on water indicators including water temperature, suspended sediment concentrations, water levels, and ice quality and will be ...
