NWT Environmental Research Bulletin
The NWT Environmental Research Bulletins (NERB) are summaries of various NWT environmental research findings.
If you’re conducting environmental research in the NWT, consider sharing your information with northern decision-makers and residents in a bulletin. Each researcher of a NWT CIMP-funded project is required to submit a bulletin.
These research summaries are also of use to northern resource decision-makers.
