River ice study
Principal Investigator: Boguski, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: The research team are seeking to understand the characteristics of the river during breakup to see if hydrokinetic energy may be an option. The research team will be placing a sonar device on the bottom of the Mackenzie River to collect data on the ice. The sonar device will be retrieved after approximately one month’s time. The research team are seeking to understand the characteristics of ...


Hay River Ice Jam Study
Principal Investigator: Hicks, Faye E
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of this research project is to study ice processes on the Hay River in order to continue the ongoing development of computer models to predict them. In order to develop realistic models, it is important that the researchers have the opportunity to observe river breakup so as to have a full understanding of the physical context of the historical data. In addition, long term data re...


2003 Winter Aquatic Studies in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: Surveys of selected streams and lakes along the proposed pipeline corridor within the Sahtu Settlement Area will be conducted this winter. This will be done to assess overwintering conditions for fish and watercourse freezing conditions in the vicinity...


2003 Winter Aquatic Surveys in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Surveys of selected streams and lakes along the proposed pipeline corridor within the Gwich'in Settlement Area will be conducted this winter. This will be done to assess overwintering conditions for fish and watercourse freezing conditions in the vicini...


2003 Winter Aquatic Surveys in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Surveys of selected streams and lakes within the gas field development areas at the Taglu, Parsons Lake and Niglintgak lease sites, and along the proposed gathering lines will be conducted this winter to assess overwintering conditions for fish and water...


Freezeup and breakup observations on the Mackenzie River near Fort Providence
Principal Investigator: Hicks, Faye E
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers will continue their monitoring of ice formation and breakup at the Mackenzie River crossing near Fort Providence. Data will be collected on water levels, river velocity, ice thickness and strength, and snow depth. This information will contribute to our knowledge of ice formation and breakup at this crossing, with a goal of predicting freezeup and breakup events....


Northern River Ice Regimes
Principal Investigator: Sherstone, David A.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: Ice gauges are installed on river ice once the ice is strong enough to support researchers (20 gauges in the Mackenzie Delta and 15 gauges on Hay River). The gauges are read every 10 days to obtain total ice thickness, white ice thickness and snow depth. From these data, the rates of ice growth and decay can be calculated, and the approximate date of maximum ice thickness can also be determined....


The Nature and Origin of Ground Ice in the High Arctic and Icing as a Hydrologic Component of Northern Drainage Basins
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: The researchers will gain a better understanding of permafrost conditions of the study area and the environmental conditions under which permafrost formed and evolved. They will also investigate icings and icing processes, since icings are a hydrologic phenomenon and their occurance has implications for recharge and runoff of drainage systems and water resource management....


Northern Hydrology and Climatology Studies
Principal Investigator: Prowse, T.D.
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: Spring breakup in Northern Rivers are often associated with record water levels and often lead to flooding. Present methods of forecasting the severity of these events are hampered by lack of understanding. The acquired knowledge and understanding obtained from these studies will be applied to the enhancement of suitable models for predicting the time and magnitude of these events....


Licence #7004
