The Arctic Great Rivers Observatory project studies the six largest rivers in the Arctic; the Mackenzie and Yukon Rivers in North America and the Ob', Yenisey, Lena, and Kolyma Rivers in Russia. The research team are interested in how climate change is impacting Arctic rivers. Measurements will be taken of the concentration of naturally-occurring chemicals (like carbon and nitrogen) and try to f...

Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre & will consist of field and lab work focused on 6 to 9 small lakes in the Delta near Inuvik. Field work will involve day trips by boat or helicopter to delta lakes. Two specific studies to be done include: 1) Evaluation of the rates of growth among groups of microscopic aquatic plants among a set of lakes that range from non-transparent to relatively transp...

Northward flowing rivers are thought to be major ways in which contaminants are introduced to the Arctic Ocean. As part of an on-going study, river water and sediments will be collected over the course of the year and assessed for the presence of contaminants. A total of 12 rivers in the Canadian arctic mainland will be sampled in this study, including the Mackenzie, Coppermine, Burnside, Ellice...

The research will provide basic information on the characteristics of the rivers and valleys that are major tributaries emptying into the Mackenzie River. The tributaries to be studied include the Carcajou, Mountain, Hume, Ramparts, Hare Indian, Ontaratue, Arctic Red and Peel Rivers. Little is known about the lower 5-7 km portion of these rivers. The information collected will include both aeri...
