Soil Carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Phillips, Marcus R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The goal of this research is to understand how landscape processes influence the quantity and quality of soil carbon in the Mackenzie Delta Region. Particular attention will be paid to the depth distribution of soil carbon and how it is affected by differences in vegetation and soil forming processes. Key environmental differences that will be examined include forest vs. tundra and delta vs. uplan...


Paleohydrology and paleoecology of the Slave River Delta
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Brent BBW
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This research program focuses on high-resolution reconstruction of past hydrology, ecology and climate of the Peace-Athabasca (PAD) and Slave River deltas (SRD) from natural archives, including lake sediments and tree rings, supported by comprehensive field-based studies of modern hydrology, limnology and aquatic ecology. The PAD and SRD have broad ecological and cultural significance and are ecos...


Flood History and Climate Change in the Slave River Delta: A Traditional Knowledge Study
Principal Investigator: Armitage, Derek
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The Slave River Delta is one of a series of important delta ecosystems in the Mackenzie Basin. The adjacent community of Fort Resolution depends on its high biological productivity and diversity for both food and resources. Because of climate change, th...


Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The long term goal of this research is to develop a biogeochemical model for lakes in the Mackenzie Delta, and ultimately, a more generalized ecosystem model for floodplains and deltas of major world rivers that will facilitate assessing the effects of m...


Birds of the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Salomons, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be based in Inuvik, and travel within the Municipality on foot, bicycle and by motor vehicle. While the majority of the Guide preparation will involve the completion of background research/literature reviews in libararies and on the internet, field studies will be carried out to document the bird species present locally. These species will be photographically documented; no ...


Mackenzie Delta Hydrology and Ecosystem Interactions
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The research will study changes in the water levels of a variety of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta. Investigations will include consideration of factors controlling the lake levels, introduction of floodwater from the Mackenzie River, rainfall on to the lake, smowmelt runoff into the lakes and evaporation from the lakes....
