2009 Baseline Studies for Avalon Ventures Ltd. Proposed Thor Lake Rare Earth Metals Project - Surface Water Hydrology
Principal Investigator: Lennie-Misgeld, Peter
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application no. 982. The objective of this research is to characterize the surface water hydrology at the Thor Lake site and vicinity for at least one hydrologic year. The baseline study is being conducted to aid Avalon Ventures in assessing potential environmental effects of its activities and having adequate environmental information to...

Variability and Change in the Canadian Cryosphere - Tundra Information Transferability Study
Principal Investigator: Walker, Anne E
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: Environment Canada plans to measure snow depth, snow density and snow water equivalent (water storage in the snowpack), as well as lake ice thickness and structure for comparison with microwave radiometer measurements. Researchers have started to use microwave data from satellites for assessing snow water equivalent (SWE). Field tests to investigate the use of microwave sensors indicate that SW...

Snow Accumulation/Runoff in High Latitude Permafrost Basins
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to improve understanding of the fluxes of water and energy in northern regions, and to develop improved computer models of these processes. The Trail Valley Creek site will be accessed by helicopter and snowmobile...

Spring Melt Hydrological Investigations at Daring Lake, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Tthe objective of this study is to continue research examining the hydrological and energy budget of small arctic esker lake basin during the spring melt period. The intent of this research is to understand the relationship between the energy budget and changes in soil moisture, rates of evapotranspiration, and changes in water discharge from a small tundra basin underlain by permafrost. Transpo...

Amituk Lake: Trace Organic Contaminants in an Arctic Aquatic System
Principal Investigator: Semkin, Raymond
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: Amituk Lake and the east coast of Cornwallis Island is a research site for documenting the occurence and movement of organic and inorganic contminants from winter snowpack into a freshwater lake. Numerous tests for snowpack water content and chemistry are carried out before snowmelt begins. Chemical and flow measurements are also taken at 6 streams and the lake outlet....
