The long-term goal of this project is to develop a biogeochemical model for lakes in the Mackenzie Delta, and ultimately, a more general ecosystem model for floodplains and deltas of major world rivers that will help assess the effects of multiple stresses on rivers resulting from global change. Numerous major river deltas in the Arctic circumpolar region are lake-rich because of thermokarst effec...

The goal of this project is to understand the complex linkages between biogeochemical cycles, vegetation, disturbance and climate across the full summer temperature gradient in the Arctic in order to better predict ecosystem responses to changing climate...

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...

The Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims to understand the biogeochemical and ecological consequences of sea ice variability on the Mackenzie Shelf (Beaufort Sea) and provide the infor...

The purpose of this study (2003 component) is to examine the fossilized types of corals that are found in the regional geological formations. Locally these corals coalesced to form mini-reefs, with interesting ecological characteristics. From the study...
