Imperial Oil Resources Ltd., Aboriginal Pipeline Group, ConocoPhillips Canada (North) Ltd., Shell Canada Limited, and ExxonMobil Canada Properties are continuing baseline studies begun in 2001 as part of the Mackenzie Gas Project. All of the aquatic studies will be conducted by three- or four-person crews supported by helicopter, or if possible, by boat. Each crew will include a local assistant. T...

The objective of this project is to observe and collect rock specimens from limestone outcrop sites. These samples will be used to interpret groundwater flow systems that occurred in the Arctic in the past when the climate was much warmer. Several sites will be visited for the purpose of examining and collecting rock specimens along the Dempster highway south of Inuvik. Two day trips west of Akla...

The Trail Valley Creek site will be accessed by Twin Otter, helicopter and snowmobile, while the Havikpak Creek site will be accessed by foot and snowmobile. We plan to have a small field crew at each site to measure the amount of snow on the ground in the middle of April, and to again return to measure snowmelt and the streamflow in mid to late May. Actual timing of the spring melt trip will depe...

The objectives of this research are to study the chemistry of the groundwaters that flow into the Little Fish River near the Cache Creek overwintering hole. The role of carbonate rocks is important as there is a lot of subsurface flow in this rock type. The presence of the aufeis (winter icing) on Cache Creek is a sign of groundwater flow, and is one of the reasons that this site was chosen. We...
