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...


Stream flow generation in wetland-dominated zones of discontinuous permafrost
Principal Investigator: Quinton, William L.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2001
Summary: The objective of research is to develop computer models to estimate the volume and timing of runoff from wetlands in this region. Models will be developed from the properties of soils, and physical attributes of the peat plateau cover. This will reduce the uncertainties regarding climate warming on the future availability of northern water resources. Fieldwork will commence in late winter with ...
