Flux of sediment-associated chemical elements in rivers draining to the Arctic Ocean
Principal Investigator: Bogen, Jim J
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The objective of this research is to estimate the modern and historical fluxes of sediment- associated chemical elements to the Arctic Ocean and their relationships to natural and man-induced changes in sediment yields and sediment sources and if possible, predict the impact of future climate changes on the fluxes. The study will include sampling of overbank sediments from floodplains and del...

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: Evaluation of the strength of methane emissions from lakes in the Mackenzie Delta relative to lakes on the adjacent arctic tundra. Will involve collecting water and sediment samples from 27 lakes in the Mackenzie Delta near Inuvik and from an additional 27 lakes located within the Havik Pak Creek and Trail Valley Creek study basins. Evaluation of diatom (algae) communities as predictors of flood...

Hydrology and geomorphology studies on the Slave River Delta, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1996 1995
Summary: The researchers will examine three things. The first is areas of landform change since 1977. Landforms will be surveyed and sediment sampled in order to measure how much sand, silt and clay are in the deposits. Second, the researchers will analyze the sediment for different chemicals wihich originate from the Slave River and third, measure the elevations of channels along their entire length, me...
