CIMP 215: Aquatic ecosystems in the Fort Good Hope area as indicators of environmental change
Global warming is causing large-scale transformations of the northern landscape. In particular, permafrost thaw has wide implications for northern ecosystems and the communities living in this transitioning landscape. As climate continues to warm, previously frozen soils may release carbon and nutrients to aquatic ecosystems. These environmental changes may push aquatic ecosystems beyond tipping points, so that the functions and services they provide to communities are at risk. This project is directly addressing concerns about changes in water quality expressed by community members in Fort Good Hope in the Sahtú Settlement Area. We used a YSI multiparametric sonde and 2L polycarbonate bottles for water sampling. Ultimately, the results from the project will help anticipate cumulative effects of climate warming and anthropogenic disturbances such as land-use on aquatic health.

Data Collection Information
We used a YSI multiparametric sonde and 2L polycarbonate bottles for water sampling in Fort Good Hope in the Sahtú Settlement Area.
Data Collection Processing
Analysis for metals and nutrients were done at the GRIL laboratory at Université du Québec in Montréal. Analyses for dissolved organic carbon (DOC) were done at Université du Québec in Trois-Rivières.
