Impacts of permafrost thaw on hydrology and water resources
Principal Investigator: Quinton, William L.
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: Understanding the ecology and hydrology of ecosystems with thawing permafrost is a major challenge. To meet this, the research team will develop new knowledge on the eco-hydrology of the major ecosystems (i.e. bogs, fens, peat plateaus) needed to develop new science-based tools to predict the future supply for the next 50 years. The specific scientific objectives are to: 1) develop fundamental kno...


Permafrost thaw impacts on northern water resources and ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Quinton, William L.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2001
Summary: Understanding the integrated eco-hydrological behavior of ecosystems in the context of thawing permafrost is a major challenge. To meet this, the research team will measure the present surface and near-surface water supplies and their inter-annual variability assuming a condition of zero permafrost thaw. The research team will also develop new knowledge on the eco-hydrology of the major ecosystems...
