Principal Investigator:Kjarsgaard, Bruce Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this study is to improve understanding of transportation and deposition of heavy minerals in surficial materials (till and esker systems). The study area is approximately 60 x 100 km, is located east of Thaydene Nene National Park, and adjacent to the Quaternary ice divide.
Work on the ground, over a 2 week period, will involve sample collection of surficial materials in order...

The objective of this research is to collect sediment cores from the Mackenzie River Delta in order to study how the river has behaved in the past, and see if the researchers can detect recent changes due to thawing permafrost. More specifically, the goal is to determine whether the researchers can reconstruct past c...
Principal Investigator:Rempel, Laura L Licenced Year(s):
The aim of this study is to characterize sediment transport processes, including bed scour and fine sediment deposition, in a sub-arctic stream intersected by the proposed Mackenzie Gas Pipeline. The specific objectives of the study are: characterization of surface and sub-surface bed sediment texture for all habitat types; measurement of bed scour depth and transport distance of sediment due to ...
Principal Investigator:Walker, Tony R Licenced Year(s):
The Beaufort Sea shelf is very shallow and the Mackenzie River, which sends freshwater, nutrients, and particles onto the shelf, may have a large influence on its productivity. The researchers would like to study the effects of the river in transporting particles to the shelf by measuring the types of particles, how fast they sink, and how easily they are stirred from the bottom. They would also ...
Principal Investigator:Burn, Chris R Licenced Year(s):
The wind abraided rocks 3 km south of Paulatuk are among the best examples of ventifacts in North America. The rocks have smooth, lichen-free surfaces on their south side, which are blasted by sand and snow during strong southerly winds in winter. The re...
Principal Investigator:Lamoureux, Scott F Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the research is to supplement and extend instrumental climatological and hydrological records in the NWT using dendrochronology (tree-ring) and varved lake sediment analysis. Transportation to the site will be by charter aircraft from Fo...
Principal Investigator:Coulombe-Pontbriand, Moise Licenced Year(s):
The study will attempt to reconstruct the past 10,000 year geomorphological and hydrological history of the Mackenzie River using sedimentological records of fluvial deposits. The researcher will travel by Zodiac boat from Jean-Marie River to Point Separ...
Principal Investigator:Murton, Julian B Licenced Year(s):2005
The research team will operate from two fly camps beside the northern coast of Liverpool Bay, and two camps in the Mason Bay area in the northest portion of Richards Island. Transportation to the camps will be by float plane and boat. All human waste will be buried, and all non-burnable waste will be packed out. Equipment used will consist of shovels and trowels to clear slumped sediment from co...

The long-term goal of this research is to develop a model of the interacting biogeochemical and hydrologic processes that control the nutrient balance and primary productivity of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta region, and ultimately, a more general model for lakes associated with the floodplains and deltas of major world rivers. Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre will consist of field and lab ...
Principal Investigator:Gariepy, Clement Licenced Year(s):
All transportation will be done using rental vehicles (usually locally). Water sampling will be done out of rental boats (typically zodiac-type) and equipment (light pumps manually operated); water will be filtered on site, particles in suspension will be carried back for analysis. This will typically be 50-100 milligrams. Itinerary includes: Inuvik, Ft. Providence, Yelllowknife....
