Principal Investigator:Burgess, David O Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this study are: 1) estimate the amount of water equivalent mass the Melville South Ice Cap loses (or gains) on an annual basis, and 2) derive a long-term climate record from glacier measurements and weather station data in order to determine trends in climate change for this region of the Northwest Territories.
Mass balance is measured at each of the 21 poles across the ice ca...

Summer 2005 field activities will focus on continuing multi-year studies of the modern hydrology and ecology of the Slave River Delta. The aim of this research is to improve knowledge of changes in lake water balance and chemistry and the subsequent responses of aquatic plants over seasonal and inter-annual time-scales under varying climatic and hydrological conditions. Overall, this information...

This is the second year of a study that measures the water balance and thermal regimes of Great Bear Lake so that the researchers can determine the linkages between the lake's behaviour and the atmosphere above. Lake temperatures will be measured with se...
Principal Investigator:English, Mike Licenced Year(s):2003
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...
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...
Principal Investigator:Rouse, Wayne R Licenced Year(s):
The field work associated with the proposed study will consist of the collection of climate data, such as air temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, amount of rain fall, water temperatures and light penetration into the lake. Similar equipment will be used to collect this data at all sites. Air temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, water temperatures and light penetration...
Principal Investigator:Strong, G.S. Licenced Year(s):
The purpose of this study is to obtain quantitative information on atmospheric temperatures, moisture, and winds from ground level to 15,000 km (or higher) above sea level (ASL), using instrumented weather balloons (radiosondes). It is proposed to transport the instrumentation and other items by truck to Fort Simpson airport. The system is self contained and can be installed in hours upon arrival....

Evaluation of the strength of methane emissions from lakes in the Mackenzie Delta relative to lakes on the adjacent arctic tundra. Will involve collecting water and sediment samples from 27 lakes in the Mackenzie Delta near Inuvik and from an additional 27 lakes located within the Havik Pak Creek and Trail Valley Creek study basins. Evaluation of diatom (algae) communities as predictors of flood...

This long term study is being conducted to assist in understanding the factors controlling water levels and the availability of nutrients in a variety of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta....
Principal Investigator:Prowse, Terry D Licenced Year(s):
To study river ice jams and break up in the Fort Simpson region, to study Mackenzie River and Delta ice break up as well as the water balance in Mackenzie Delta Lakes. To study snow-soil interactions near Resolute Bay....
