Principal Investigator:Porter, Trevor Licenced Year(s):
The primary objectives of this research project are to collect frozen core samples from the top of permafrost and soil from the active layer. Boreal sites will be targeted. The stable isotope compositions of ice and leaf waxes from the samples will be measured. Samples collected from NWT will be added to a much larger Yukon dataset, and the relations between regional climate and the proxies will b...

The objectives of the research are to examine how increasing active layer depth, surficial geology, vegetation, slope and aspect impact changes in shallow groundwater and surface stream chemistry in two subbasins of the Daring Lake basin in the headwater...

The research team proposes to collect ice cores and liquid water from the Mackenzie River adjacent to the Town of Inuvik. The research team will then examine the concentration of the naturally occuring, stable isotope of oxygen (oxygen -18) in these ice and water samples, and determine how these concentrations differ in Northern Alaska and Canada. All samples will be taken to the University of A...
Principal Investigator:Maric, Robert Licenced Year(s):
The research team will be based out of Yellowknife. Travel to the Ekati Mine site will be by helicopter; travel on site will be on foot. The research team will be in the field for approximately seven days. Characterization of the hydrologic balance of the system under investigation will be completed by the collection of several hundred water samples (each with an approximate volume of 30 ml) at d...
