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...

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 for the Mackenzie Delta and 15 gauges for Hay River). These 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 be determined....
