Hay River Ice Jam Study
Principal Investigator: Hicks, Faye E
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of this research project is to study ice processes on the Hay River in order to continue the ongoing development of computer models to predict them. In order to develop realistic models, it is important that the researchers have the opportunity to observe river breakup so as to have a full understanding of the physical context of the historical data. In addition, long term data re...


Improving Habitat Connectivity to Enhance Productive Capacity of Arctic Freshwater Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Tonn, William
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objectives of this research project are: to study the freshwater ecology, hydrology, and hydraulics of small lakes and streams in the Lac de Gras basin before habitat modification; to monitor the changes in ecosystem productive capacity resulting from habitat modifications designed to increase habitat connectivity and fish passage; and to assess the effectiveness of such habitat modifications ...


Hydrological Studies, Mackenzie Delta Region
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006
Summary: The objectives of this project are: (1) to develop improved understanding of, and ability to predict, snowcover formation and melt, as well as stream discharge in northern regions, and (2) to develop an improved understanding of, and ability to predict, water levels in the lakes and channels of the Mackenzie Delta. These will allow a better understanding of the impact of climate change and/or natu...


IPY-SCARF: International Polar Year - Study of Canadian Arctic River-delta Fluxes
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: The Arctic Ocean receives much higher river inflows than other ocean basins and this has major implications for sea-ice formation, for nutrient supply to the base of aquatic marine foodwebs, and for optical properties of ice-free areas and ice-pack margins via fluxes of dissolved organic matter and riverine particles. The Beaufort Shelf is strongly influenced by Mackenzie River outflows. However, ...


2004 Hydrology and Water Quality Surveys in the Gahcho KuÚ (Kennady Lake) Area
Principal Investigator: Van der Gugten, Neil
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2004
Summary: The overall project objective is to collect information on the Gahcho KuÚ and 'control lake' areas for use in impact assessment and environmental protection planning for a proposed mine development. AMEC Earth and Environmental (AMEC) has been retained t...


2004 Noise Survey in the Gahcho KuÚ (Kennady Lake) Area
Principal Investigator: Palczynski, Richard
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: The overall project objective is to collect information on the Gahcho KuÚ camp area for use in impact assessment and environmental protection planning for a proposed mine development. AMEC Earth and Environmental (AMEC) has been retained to conduct this...


Extreme Flooding Events in the Mackenzie River Basin
Principal Investigator: de Rham, Laurent
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: It is known that extreme flood levels within the Mackenzie River Basin are caused by ice jamming events. Analysis of open water versus ice influenced water levels at several sites within the Mackenzie River Basin will provide further quantification of th...


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...


2002 Aquatic Studies in the Deh Cho Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The research team proposes to collect information about fish habitat features and use on watercourse crossings located within the tentative pipeline corridor in the Deh Cho Region. All aquatic studies will be conducted by three or four-person crews. Each crew will include a local researcher or community representative. Depending upon accessibility, sites will be accessed by helicopter and an i...


2002 Aquatic Studies in the Inuvialuit Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The research team proposes to collect information about fish habitat features and use on watercourse crossings located within the tentative pipeline corridor in the Inuvialuit Settlement Area. The research team will survey 14 permanent watercourses, as well as several intermittent or seasonal watercourses and approximately 20 lakes located along the study corridor to determine aquatic characteri...
