Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: The objectives of this project are to understand and predict stream discharge in northern regions and water levels in the Mackenzie Delta, in order to better understand the impact of climate change and natural gas development. Sites will be visited between April and September, accessed from Inuvik using helicopter, snowmobile, and float plane. On site travel will be by boat and on foot. Activi...

Snow accumulation / runoff in high latitude permafrost basins
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: Snow plays an important role in northern ecosystems. It accounts for a large portion of the years total precipitation and therefore when its melts in the spring it is responsible for significant flood, for increased soil moisture upon which plants are reliant for summer growth, & for refilling lakes and ponds. Snowcover stores atmospheric input of solutes, nutrients, & pollutants during the wint...

Mackenzie Delta Hydrology and Ecosystem Interactions
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: This long-term, ongoing study is aimed at understanding the factors controlling water levels and the availability of nutrients in a variety of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta. This work will allow us to better understand the natural Mackenzie Delta ecosystem, and to make better predictions of the effect of environmental change on the Delta. Cores of sediment will be collected from lake bottoms to d...
