A Program to Evaluate Changing Northern Lake Ice Regimes
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The objective of this research project is to complete on ice snow depth, ice thickness and composition survey along with collection under ice core water quality and biological information. Sample locations from previous years are located using a handheld GPS. On ice snow depth is measured using a tape measure. An ice auger is used to penetrate the ice cover and evaluate if white ice is present...


Sensitivities of high-latitude lakes to climatic & development disturbances
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: Melting permafrost can alter soils and surface runoff. The effects of such changes have been modeled but never evaluated experimentally. Arctic lake productivity is not well articulated and sensitivities to disturbance (e.g., climate change, water withdrawal for development use) remain unpredictable. The objective of this study is to develop a hydrologic model for melting permafrost conditions, as...


Evaluation of extreme events (ice jams) and deep scour holes on Mackenzie Delta Channels
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This is Year 3 of a research project that examines extreme flooding and deep scour holes along the Mackenzie River. Ice jamming has a great influence on channel construction and destruction, formation of deep scour holes in the bed of channels, and flooding of the adjacent delta landscape. Hence, ice jams are of practical concern in the development of infrastructure, ecology of the delta and day-t...


Hydrologic studies in the NWT in 1987.
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 1987
Summary: To study river ice jams and break up in the Fort Simpson region, to study Mackenzie River and Delta ice break up as well as the water balance in Mackenzie Delta Lakes. To study snow-soil interactions near Resolute Bay....
