Modelling the flow and storage components in the lower Liard River valley
Principal Investigator: Quinton, William L.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2001
Summary: This study is a continuation of a project that began in 2001. The researchers are studying the flow and storage of water in the Scotty Creek watershed. The data they collect will help them to create a model that will do a better job of estimating the volume and timing of basin runoff in wetlands in discontinuous permafrost terrain. The information they have collected so far suggests that peat p...


Modelling the energy and water balance and characteristics of lakes in the Mackenzie River Basin.
Principal Investigator: Rouse, Wayne R
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The field work associated with the proposed study will consist of the collection of climate data, such as air temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, amount of rain fall, water temperatures and light penetration into the lake. Similar equipment will be used to collect this data at all sites. Air temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, water temperatures and light penetration...


Hydrological modelling for a permafrost site and arctic snow accumulation and melt
Principal Investigator: Woo, Ming-ko
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: This on-going study attempts to find out how permafrost affects the groundwater, streamflow and levels of water in wetlands. Measurements such as soil moisture, rainfall, ground and air temperatures, and water level will be taken. This research will help to determine how climatic change affects permafrost and water bodies in the Arctic....


Hydrology and geochemistry of a high arctic lake basin: Colour Lake, Axel Heiberg Island, NWT
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992 1991
Summary: The researchers are interested in understanding how physical factors (snowmelt, rainfall, solar radiation) play a role in thawing the upper part of the ground each year during the spring and summer. Instruments in the ground will collect data that will estimate how much energy (from the sun) is entering into and melting the frozen ground. Other instruments will measure snowmelt, rainfall and the...


Mackenzie Delta Hydrology and Ecosystem Interactions
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The research will study changes in the water levels of a variety of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta. Investigations will include consideration of factors controlling the lake levels, introduction of floodwater from the Mackenzie River, rainfall on to the lake, smowmelt runoff into the lakes and evaporation from the lakes....


Isotope Hydrology and Geochemistry Studies, Manners Creek Basin, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Edwards, Thomas W.D.
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and his assistant will collect samples of snow, rain, stream water, pond water and ground water from undisturbed sites in the Manners Creek Basin. Measurements of naturally occurring chemicals and isotopes in surface and subsurface waters will be used to study the movement and mixing of waters in a boreal watershed in the zone of continuous permafrost....


Licence #2775
Principal Investigator: Sklash, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 1982
Summary: 1. Determine the magnitude an timing of groundwater contributions to a stream during summer storm runoff events. 2. Determine the nature of the physical response of groundwater to a rain event. 3. Determine how groundwater chemistry affects surface water chemistry during runoff events....


Licence #2276
Principal Investigator: Anderson, John C.
Licenced Year(s): 1978
Summary: 1. To conduct hydrologic studies with regard to highway construction. Measurements of pre-melt snow, ice covers, snow melt, rainfall, stream discharge, suspended sediment concentrations and water temperature in rivers will be taken. 2. Some aerial and road based reconnaissance will also be undertaken....
