Wetland status, change, and seasonal inundation dynamics for assessing the vulnerability of waterfowl habitat within the ABoVE study domain
Principal Investigator: French, Nancy H
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4543. The overarching project goal is to characterize changes in waterfowl habitat using remote sensing approaches. The first objective is to create wetland type and surface inundation products (maps) for the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) boreal region. The second objective is to assess the efficacy of remo...


Transitioning of permafrost to wetland and implications for biomass gains and losses
Principal Investigator: Chasmer, Laura E
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This licence has been issued for the scientific research application No.4527. The objectives are to: 1) Compare the distribution of tree and shrub biomass within accessible areas in the Taiga Shield and Taiga Plains landscapes using lidar remote sensing, and by developing tree and shrub vegetation biomass models from field data; 2) Characterize and compare non fire-disturbed patterns of veget...


Nutrient and contaminant status in the wetlands of the Slave River Delta
Principal Investigator: Doig, Lorne
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Through this research the team will answer the following questions: 1. From the outer Slave River Delta (SRD) to the apex of the SRD, what is the current status of nutrients and contaminants in SRD wetland ecosystems? 2. How do trace elements (e.g., mercury) move through SRD wetland food webs? 3. How does water source affect the availability of nutrients and trace metals in SRD wetlands? Wet...


Deh Cho Region Wetland Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Merchant, Michael A
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The main objective of this project is to develop wetland inventory for south western NWT that will be used to provide a baseline for many kinds of planning (including updates to the land use planning processes) and research in support of biodiversity conservation and sustainable management of habitat. Specific objectives are to: 1) develop and use computer-based methods to produce wetland maps wi...


Akaitcho - DUC Wetland Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Richard, Alain
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: The main objective of this project is to develop wetland inventory for south eastern Northwest Territories (NWT) that will be used to provide a baseline for many kinds of planning (including land use planning processes) and research in support of biodiversity conservation and sustainable management of habitat. Specific objectives are to: 1) develop and use computer-based methods to produce we...


Plant communities along Bakers Creek NWT
Principal Investigator: Stevens, Kevin J
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The research team will conduct a comprehensive wetland plant community vegetation analysis along Bakers Creek with a focus on the lower stretch of the creek. In addition soil samples will be obtained for an assessment of soil dwelling fungal communities. The assessment will include emergent vegetation along riparian areas as well a floating leaved, free floating and submerged vegetation in the ...


Using Remote Sensing to Support Cumulative Impact Monitoring of Water Resources in the Northwest Territories.
Principal Investigator: Tsui, Olivier
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective of the winter field survey is to determine and record lakes where ice has frozen to the bottom and areas where floating ice is present. Along with obtaining this information, snow depth, ice thickness, ice type, photos, and local weather conditions will be recorded. The objective of the summer field work is to observe broad wetland types and the extent and presence of submerged aquat...


Effect of spring and summer temperatures on amphipod reproduction (Gammarus lacustris)
Principal Investigator: Messmer, David J
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: To determine how spring and summer temperatures affect the abundance of the amphipod Gammarus lacustris throughout the summer. Over the 2 years of the experiment, the research team plans to use amphipods from 4 different sources over several latitudes (Montana-USA, St. Denis-SK, Yellowknife-NT, Inuvik, NT). Using this variety of geographic sources will allow us to assess if different populations...


Arctic Wastewater Research
Principal Investigator: Challen Urbanic, Jane
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this research is to assess the performance of lagoons and wetlands in the treatment of municipal wastewater in Canada's Arctic. A secondary objective is to determine the occurrence of trace contaminants in northern wastewaters. Samples will be taken from the influent (raw sewage) and effluent (treated wastewater) of each lagoon and wetland system in the communities where the r...


Arsenic sequestering by microbial activity in wetlands adjacent to the Terra Mine tailings lake, Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Drysdale, Jessica A
Licensed Year(s): 2009
Summary: The objective of this study is to identify how arsenic is bound in the sediments, and determine the role of microbial activity in arsenic mobility. It is anticipated that the results of this research will benefit the design of a constructed wetland, which is expected to be part of site remediation. The researchers propose to sample sediments and surface and pore water from the Ho-Hum Lake wetla...
