Snow accumulation/runoff in high latitude permafrost basins
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The primary objective of this project is to improve understanding of the changes in water and energy in northern regions, and to develop improved computer models of these processes. The Trail Valley Creek, Hans Creek, and Zed Creek sites will be accessed...


Analysis of Oxygen-18 Isotope Rates From Northern Alaska and Canada
Principal Investigator: Masse, Tom
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: 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...


Modelling the energy and water balance and characteristics of lakes in the Mackenzie River Basin.
Principal Investigator: Rouse, Wayne R
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: 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...


Spring Melt Hydrological Investigations at Daring Lake, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Tthe objective of this study is to continue research examining the hydrological and energy budget of small arctic esker lake basin during the spring melt period. The intent of this research is to understand the relationship between the energy budget and changes in soil moisture, rates of evapotranspiration, and changes in water discharge from a small tundra basin underlain by permafrost. Transpo...


Hydrologic Investigation of a Canadian Shield Basin
Principal Investigator: Spence, Chris
Licenced Year(s): 2001 1999 1998
Summary: A number of remote meteorological and hydrometric data collection sites will be constructed around Lower Carp Lake. An island on the lake will be used as a base camp. This island will be used to operate an automatic weather station and hydrometric stations and associated camp to support scientific studies of the Canadian GEWEX effort and to provide meteorological data for use in weather forecasts ...


Enivronmental Studies of the Ice-Bearing Region in Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Fujino, Kazuo
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher and field team will conduct a geological survey and topographic traverse survey around the massive ground ice. They will take samples for ecological study and geochemical analysis....
