The effect of permafrost slumping on carbon delivery from land to water
Principal Investigator: Tank, Suzanne E
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014
Summary: The objective of this study is to understand how permafrost slumping increases the mobilization of organic carbon from land to water, and the effects of this movement on stream communities. The research team will measure the concentration of stream-water organic carbon upstream and downstream of slump sites. The research team will also examine the fate of this carbon by undertaking incubation expe...


Using Tree Rings and Lake Sediment to Reconstruct Streamflow and Climate in the Northwest Territories
Principal Investigator: Lamoureux, Scott F
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: 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...


Hydrologic investigation of a Canadian Shield basin
Principal Investigator: Spence, Chris
Licenced Year(s): 2001 1999 1998
Summary: 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...


Hydrological modelling for a permafrost site and arctic snow accumulation and melt
Principal Investigator: Woo, Ming-ko
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: This on-going study attempts to find out how permafrost affects the groundwater, streamflow and levels of water in wetlands. Measurements such as soil moisture, rainfall, ground and air temperatures, and water level will be taken. This research will help to determine how climatic change affects permafrost and water bodies in the Arctic....


Wager Bay Basin Overview
Principal Investigator: Swyripa, Murray
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: The Water Resources Division, along with the Inland Waters Directorate and Canadian Parks Service, are planning a cooperative water quality program for the Wager Bay area. This program will involve measuring stream flow rates and sampling for water quality at a number of sites on rivers that flow into Wager Bay within the proposed Wager Bay National Park area. As well, water and sediment samples...


Hydrology of snow-filled arctic stream valleys
Principal Investigator: Heron, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1990
Summary: As part of an ongoing study in which field work was conducted in 1989 and 1990, this year's work will involve a study of the effects that snowdrifts can have on blocking the movement of meltwater in the McMaster River during the spring. Snowdrifts located at several sites along the river will be monitored to determine how they can alter the river's course, how these drifts are eventually broken d...


Impact of Climatic Change on Earth Surface Processes, Fosheim Peninsula, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Lewkowicz, Antoni G
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The overall aim of this research is to establish links between climate and the activity of geomorphic processes so that predictions can be made about the possible impact of any climate change. This project will help to understand how the climate affects the processes that move soil down slopes into rivers and eventually to the sea....


Licence #2532
Principal Investigator: Woo, Ming-ko
Licenced Year(s): 1980
Summary: To study the melt processes of an Arctic snowpack and an Arctic lake ice cover and to compare the stream flow of a glacerized and adjacent non-glacerized basin....


Licence #2295
Principal Investigator: Woo, Ming-ko
Licenced Year(s): 1978
Summary: 1. To study snow distribution and ablation processes in a small basin; 2. To relate the regime of stream flow and lake storage changes to basin meltwater contributions and evaporation....


Licence #2108
Principal Investigator: Woo, Ming-ko
Licenced Year(s): 1977
Summary: To study snow ablation processes in a small Arctic basin in the vicinity of Resolute Bay, N.W.T. To relate the regime of stream flow to basin meltwater contributions and evaporation losses....
