The objective of this project is to understand water and energy fluxes in northern regions, and to develop improved models of these processes. Project studies will look at both the atmospheric and surface water budgets of the Mackenzie Basin, with an emphasis on the effects of climate change on hydrology.
The rates and processes controlling accumulation of snow, snowmelt, water flux through sno...

Tthe objective of this study is to continue research examining the hydrological and energy budget of small arctic esker lake basin during the spring melt period. The intent of this research is to understand the relationship between the energy budget and changes in soil moisture, rates of evapotranspiration, and changes in water discharge from a small tundra basin underlain by permafrost. Transpo...

The Mackenzie GEWEX Study (MAGS) is the Canadian component of the international effort called the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX), in support of a World Climate Research Programme to observe, understand, and model the hydrological cycle and energy fluxes in the atmosphere, at land surface, and in the upper oceans. A transportable radar system, called the IPIX radar, which was set ...

The Twin Otter, operated by the National Research Council of Canada, will be stationed at the Inuvik Airport (most likely in the RCMP hanger). Support equipment for the aircraft and for data analysis will be shipped to Inuvik and installed at the hanger and in the Finto Hotel. No installation or infrastructure is required elsewhere in the field. Data collected from the aircraft (operating at 60m)...

The researcher will measure the meterorological parameters at two primary sites; first year sea ice and multiyear sea ice. Each site consists of tower based sensors to measure various types of radiation, wind speed, wind direction and air temperatures. In addition, snow and ice temperatures are used. The physical properties of snow (depth, wetness, density, and grain microphotography) will be c...
