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...


Influence of the Arctic on Mid-latitude Weather and Climate: Observation of Precipitation Particles at Inuvik.
Principal Investigator: Yamashita, Akira
Licenced Year(s): 1995
Summary: The researchers will observe crystal formation from ice fog through the collection of samples for microscopic observation and through the taking of photographs/video of optical phenomena produced by floating ice crystals. Particle counting and cloud condensation nucleus counting at the observation site will also be done....


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....


Current contaminant deposition measurements in precipitation throughout the NWT
Principal Investigator: Gregor, Dennis J.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: Contaminants are carried in the air to the arctic during the winter when large-scale wind movements bring these contaminants from industrialized locations in North America, Europe and Asia to the north. Snow can collect these compounds from the air and bring them to the ground where they can accumulate. Thus, it is important to study the amount of contaminants in snow to determine the types and ...


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....


Licence #1931
Principal Investigator: Goth, David
Licenced Year(s): 1976
Summary: 1) To collect data on seasonal snow depths, densities and temperatures, 2) To collect snow samples for pollen measurement, 3) To make observations on the presence of erratics and weathering on exposed rocks, 4) To compile a daily records of precipitation, temperature, cloud ...
