This study involves the determination of the population structure of fish in the Mackenzie River. Specific objectives include the delineation of stocks of three fish species: loche (Lota lota), crookedback (Coregonus clupeaformis) and coney (Stenodus leucicthys), and the identification of downstream fisheries as mixed-stock or single-stock fisheries. A population genetics approach will be employed...

The main objectives of the field reconnaissance at landslide sites are as follows:
o To visit landslide sites that exhibit on-going movement in order to qualify the rate of movement;
o To identify main failure mechanisms and factors that contributed to slope failures;
o To validate previous data collected through airphoto interpretation and remote sensing techniques;
o To collect soil samples ...

The purpose of the study is to better understand how climate and environmental changes affect river water chemistry and material export fluxes, and in turn, how biogeochemical tracers can be used to examine the impacts and biogeochemical consequences of environmental changes. This is the second year of a three-year study.
The researchers plan to sample the Mackenzie River starting in late Apri...
Principal Investigator:Dick, Terry A. Licenced Year(s):
This research will study small second order streams entering the Mackenzie River in order to 1) develop descriptors to measure physical aspects of small stream environments; and 2) determine which biological organisms to use to monitor stream health. Nin...

This research is for aquatic studies as part of Imperial Oil Resources NWT Limited overall Aquatic Effects Monitoring program. Water samples, suspended sediment samples, and bottom sediment samples will be collected for chemical analysis. Samples will be...

The aim of this research is to define the influence of the Mackenzie Delta floods on the biological processes and patterns that persist in these shallow water ecosystems. The researchers are looking for links between the sediment on the bottom of the lak...
Principal Investigator:de Rham, Laurent Licenced Year(s):
It is known that extreme flood levels within the Mackenzie River Basin are caused by ice jamming events. Analysis of open water versus ice influenced water levels at several sites within the Mackenzie River Basin will provide further quantification of th...

The Mackenzie River Valley, from Wrigley to Fort Good Hope, will be surveyed in order to document the nature of the river prior to the last glaciation. Sediments will be sampled in order to determine their age (using radiocarbon dating techniques). Field work will take place along the Mackenzie River between Wrigley and the mouth of the Redstone River, in the lower section of Gt. Bear River, and...
