Principal Investigator:Anderson, Natalie K Licenced Year(s):
The research team propose to examine the sources of wood within the Mackenzie River drainage, transport of wood toward the Arctic Ocean, and the potential implications of global warming for wood recruitment and transport. The primary objectives are to (i) evaluate fundamental controls on wood dynamics within the Mackenzie and (ii) develop an empirical predictive model to estimate future wood dynam...
Principal Investigator:Wein, Ross Licenced Year(s):
In June driftwood quantity will be measured using river hydrology and visual sitings by researchers and ferry operators in Tsiigehchic, and Fort McPherson. From June to August, log sinkage data will be collected from sites near Inuvik. Driftwood piles id...
Principal Investigator:Eggertsson, Olafur Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will sample about 100-200 driftwood logs using a chain-saw to cut off a 1-2 cm plate about 0.5 m inside the end of each log. The material will be shipped to Lund University laboratory for examination....
Principal Investigator:Stewart, Thomas G. Licenced Year(s):
To collect samples of marine and non-marine sediments and to record evidence of driftwood presence in the fiord. The purpose of the study is to create a better understanding of the climate of the area since the last ice age....
