The objective of this research is to determine the water cycle processes acting in lakes and streams that could affect the streamflow response of Baker Creek and similar streams. A second objective is to understand how processes acting over smaller areas influence those that are predominant over larger areas.
The proposed work will take place within a research basin framework. The propose...

The proposed research will investigate the physical and chemical characteristics of the near-surface ice-rich zone in sediments of the Mackenzie Delta area. The goals of the research are to investigate the relationship between ice-rich permafrost and fo...

Fish will be collected and released live using seining and electro-fishing techniques. Data collection will also include flow monitoring. All assessments will be completed on watercourses within the Misery Road, Sable Lake Road and Fox Lake Road developments within the mine site. BHP will provide support staff which will include people hired locally....

The research team will install sensing equipment (water level recorders and rain guages), and stream flow measurements will made during a 5 day field program in June of 2001. An additional 5 day sampling program will occur in August, 2001. Approximately 5 soil samples will be collected in cylinders (30 cm x 10 cm) for the measurement of water transmission properties. Water samples (30 ml) will b...

The long-term goal of this research is to develop a model of the interacting biogeochemical and hydrologic processes that control the nutrient balance and primary productivity of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta region, and ultimately, a more general model for lakes associated with the flood plains and deltas of major world rivers. Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre will consist of field and lab...

The Trail Valley site will be accessed by helicopter and snowmobile this year, while the Havikpak Creek site will be accessed by foot and snowmobile. Our field work will be similar to what was done in 2000, with short (<1 week) trips in both April/May and August. Activities at each site will simply include the download of data from the dataloggers on site, and the measurement of snow on the grou...

The research team will be based out of Yellowknife. Travel to the Ekati Mine site will be by helicopter; travel on site will be on foot. The research team will be in the field for approximately seven days. Characterization of the hydrologic balance of the system under investigation will be completed by the collection of several hundred water samples (each with an approximate volume of 30 ml) at d...

In 1999, the Northwest Territories Power Corporation was awarded a 25 year water licence to operate its three hydroelectric plants on the Snare River. Conditions of this water licence included that two studies be done by the Corporation. The first study is an assessment addressing the removal of minimum flow requirements on two of the dams. This study will include a current assessment of fish a...

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...
Principal Investigator:Lacelle, Denis Licenced Year(s):
This is a study of retrogressive thaw sumps produced by the exposure and melting of massive ice in continuous permafrost (Richardson Range, NWT). These sumps are recently occurring and presumably a result of global climate change. This research will recognize retrogressive thaw slumps that have massive ice, identify the type of massive ice (glacier buried or segregated) and measure the rate of ...
