River Ice Study
Principal Investigator: Boguski, Rick
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014
Summary: The objective of this study is to measure ice depth and river flow during the winter months. Spring break up will provide crucial details as to its impact on the potential use of hydrokinetic turbines (ie. determining if there is scouring etc.). A hole will be drilled in the ice and a 200 pound sonar device will be placed on the bottom of the river. It will be anchored to the river bottom until...


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...


RADARSAT Observations of River Ice and Flood Patterns in the Mackenzie River Delta
Principal Investigator: van der Sanden, Josephus J
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009
Summary: To investigate the potential of Canada’s RADARSAT satellites as a tool for the collection of information on (change in) river ice conditions and, during spring breakup, flood conditions in the Mackenzie River Delta. Canada’s RADARSAT satellites have been tasked to acquire images over the Mackenzie Delta since October 2008 to present. Regular data acquisitions will continue into 2010. To facili...


Harnessing River Current Power with Helical Gorlov Turbines
Principal Investigator: Katz, Sharon
Licenced Year(s): 2007
Summary: The goals of this study are: to develop an understanding of water and ice behaviour in sites on the Mackenzie and Great Bear rivers; to obtain knowledge of water speed, depth, current profile, frazil ice and how deep ice may reach into the rivers during the Spring break up; to use this information to determine the feasibility of using Ducted Venturi and Gorlov Helical Turbines (DV-GHT) to harness ...


Evaluation of extreme events (ice jams) and deep scour holes on Mackenzie Delta Channels
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: 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...


2005 Spring Break-up Watercourse Investigation Program in the Gwich'in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Graburn, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: This research is part of an aerial reconnaissance program to study spring breakup at the major watercourse crossings along the proposed pipeline right-of-way from the Deh Cho region in the south to the Inuvialuit Settlement Region in the north. The resea...


2005 Spring Break-up Watercourse Investigation Program - Deh Cho Region
Principal Investigator: Graburn, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: This research is part of an aerial reconnaissance program to study spring breakup at the major watercourse crossings along the proposed pipeline right-of-way from the Deh Cho region in the south to the Inuvialuit Settlement Region in the north. The resea...

2004 Spring Break-up Watercourse Investigation Program - Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Graburn, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: This research forms part of an aerial reconnaissance program to observe the characteristic break-up patterns at selected watercourse crossings along the proposed pipeline right-of-way from the Deh Cho region in the south to the Inuvialuit Settlement Regi...


2004 Winter and Spring Aquatic Studies in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Imperial Oil Resources Ltd., Aboriginal Pipeline Group, ConocoPhillips Canada (North) Ltd., Shell Canada Limited, and ExxonMobil Canada Properties are continuing baseline studies begun in 2001 as part of the Mackenzie Gas Project. This study has three co...
