The research team propose to examine the sources of wood within the Mackenzie River drainage, transport of wood toward the Arctic Ocean, and the potential implications of global warming for wood recruitment and transport. The primary objectives are to (i) evaluate fundamental controls on wood dynamics within the Mackenzie and (ii) develop an empirical predictive model to estimate future wood dynam...

This is Year 3 of a research project that examines extreme flooding and deep scour holes along the Mackenzie River. Ice jamming has a great influence on channel construction and destruction, formation of deep scour holes in the bed of channels, and flooding of the adjacent delta landscape. Hence, ice jams are of practical concern in the development of infrastructure, ecology of the delta and day-t...

The researcher and his team will use a special instrument to transfer the channel position at a given location from an aerial photograph to a base map. Repeating this exercise for different aged aerial photographs of the same site reveals the progressive change in the channel position. These maps will show exactly where the channel change is occurring and will allow the rates of movement to be m...
