Principal Investigator:Wolfe, Brent BBW Licenced Year(s):
This research program focuses on high-resolution reconstruction of past hydrology, ecology and climate of the Peace-Athabasca (PAD) and Slave River deltas (SRD) from natural archives, including lake sediments and tree rings, supported by comprehensive field-based studies of modern hydrology, limnology and aquatic ecology. The PAD and SRD have broad ecological and cultural significance and are ecos...

The long-term goal of this project is to develop a biogeochemical model for lakes in the Mackenzie Delta, and ultimately, a more general ecosystem model for floodplains and deltas of major world rivers that will help assess the effects of multiple stresses on rivers resulting from global change. Numerous major river deltas in the Arctic circumpolar region are lake-rich because of thermokarst effec...
Principal Investigator:Grasby, Stephen Licenced Year(s):
This project is a continuation of work begun in 2004. The researchers were not able to do their field work in 2004, and will try again in 2005. Historic mention is made of springs at Windy Point on the north shore of Great Slave Lake. The research team...
Principal Investigator:Coulombe-Pontbriand, Moise Licenced Year(s):
The study will attempt to reconstruct the past 10,000 year geomorphological and hydrological history of the Mackenzie River using sedimentological records of fluvial deposits. The researcher will travel by Zodiac boat from Jean-Marie River to Point Separ...
Principal Investigator:Beierle, Brandon Licenced Year(s):
The research team will obtain sediment cores from a series of lakes near Reindeer Station and Inuvik for the purpose of reconstructing the hydrological, climatological and geomorphic history of the lower Mackenzie River basin. The research will require fieldwork between 15 April and 25 April. Research will involve the development of a high-resolution paleoenvironmental record based on lake sedime...
Principal Investigator:CLARK, Ian D. Licenced Year(s):
Data will be collected that can help to predict climate of the near future and determine the impact of temperature change on northern hydrology. The investigator will attempt to better understand how methane-producing bacteria function giving us a better understanding of their feedback on climate change. The research area is a quarry along the Dempster highway east of Campbell Lake. This site w...
