The objective of the spring 2015 hydrotechnical assessment is to continue to assess the major watercourses (approximately 29) in the Gwich'in Settlement Area along the proposed Mackenzie Valley Highway alignment that were identified in the preliminary work completed in the Project Description Report submitted in May 2011.
The spring 2015 field survey is planned to observe the proposed crossings...

The objective of the research is to determine the water cycle processes in lakes and streams affecting Baker Creek and similar streams, and more generally to understand how small scale processes influence those of larger areas.
Field studies at Baker Creek, a typical Canadian Shield stream that drains ~130 km2 into Great Slave Lake, will focus on the spring melt and summer seasons. Existing i...

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 main aim of this project is to determine the change in flocculation, part...

Lower Carp Lake is part of the Yellowknife River and is roughly 22km in size. A number of remote meteorological and hydrometric data collection sites will be constructed around the lake. An island on the lake will be used as a base camp for the research activities. This island is roughly circular rising up to 50m from the lakeshore. A portion of the island is dominated by sandy glacial deposits. M...

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....

The purpose of the project is to improve the ways we have to predict the spring floods in the smaller rivers. Floods from snowmelt are a particular concern in northern rivers. In the Ft. Simpson area, spring flows from the smaller rivers, which are tributaries to the Liard and Mackenzie, have a great deal to do with the timing and nature of breakup on the major rivers. Snow conditions will be surv...
