The overall objective of this research component is to improve knowledge on lake ice and its effect on food webs/productivity in small Arctic lake systems in order to better predict changes that could occur under changing climate.
The methodology described here pertains to research activities involving the automated ice buoy and instrumented subsurface mooring system for continuous monitoring o...

The overall objective of this study is to develop a model that can be used to look at the vulnerability of small arctic lakes and ponds to changing climate.
Lake Ice Study:
Lakes 5A, 5B and Noell Lake (MAP-2 of the original licence application) will be visited in mid-April to measure lake ice. Holes will be made in the ice using an ice corer. Ice thickness and composition will be determined by...

This project would improve the national snow water equivalent (SWE) monitoring capabilities by acquiring the necessary data to estimate SWE in the snow covered tundra environment. Transportation for local surveys will be by snowmobiles. Regional surveys...
Principal Investigator:Kerr, Daniel Licenced Year(s):
The researcher will be conducting geological field work in the region defined by the NTS Winter Lake Map (No. 86A). The work will involve surveying the land features and collecting samples of the rock and sediments in order that this information can be summarized on a geological map....
Principal Investigator:Adams, Peter Licenced Year(s):1993
The project will continue to take measurements of the accumulation of snow on the glaciers and try to ascertain how much snow and ice has been lost or gained since it was measured in 1990. Limnology experiments will be conducted on Colour Lake. Ice regimes will be monitored....
Principal Investigator:Burn, Chris R Licenced Year(s):
The research team will monitor the amount of heave that occurs in lake-bottom sediments during winter, after water freezes to the bottom of lakes, because these environments are the best for examining the hydrology of frost heaving....
Principal Investigator:Terroux, A.C.D. Licenced Year(s):
(1) Ice thickness determination - Mackenzie Delta Channels - April 1981. (2) Aerial photography of ice break- up - along Mackenzie River - May/June 1981. (3) Monitoring of Mackenzie Delta Lake Process (break-up, etc.) using time lapsed photography - April - November 1981. (4) Inuvik-Tuktoyaktuk Highway Hydrology Study (water distribution, etc.) April/November 1981 (aerial surveys)....
Principal Investigator:McGregor, C.A. Licenced Year(s):
Parsons Lake - a quantitive description of vegetation with organic content, ice content and moisture content. Sabine Peninsula - preliminary terrain sensitivity classification for use in planning transporation facilities....
