The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...

The objectives of this project are to measure meteorology, heat fluxes, and physical limnological components of Great Bear Lake; to quantify the variability in these characteristics; to model the thermal structure of the lake under current and changed climate conditions; and to assess the effect of climate on the temperature structure and heat fluxes of the lake.
This research is part of the IP...

This is Year 3 of a research project that examines extreme flooding and deep scour holes along the Mackenzie River. Ice jamming has a great influence on channel construction and destruction, formation of deep scour holes in the bed of channels, and flooding of the adjacent delta landscape. Hence, ice jams are of practical concern in the development of infrastructure, ecology of the delta and day-t...

The Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims to understand the biogeochemical and ecological consequences of sea ice variability on the Mackenzie Shelf (Beaufort Sea) and provide the infor...

Recently BHP Diamonds Canada has "dewatered" a number of lakes and created a diversion channel to re-route water around two open pit mines. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of the diversion canal as habitat before and after it is enhanced with fish habitat structures and also in relation to natural streams in the area. In early spring Arctic grayling will be captured in we...

Ships of many types and ships designed for many purposes transmit Canada's SouthernNorthwest Passage. Each of these ships posesa potential danger to the passengers & crews aboard as well as to the environment. The Canadian Hydrographic Service is conducting surveys to produce nautical charts to assist ships to travel safely. Potentially shallow passages will be surveyed to ensure safe navigation c...
