Principal Investigator:Hicks, Faye E Licenced Year(s):
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...
Principal Investigator:Tonn, William Licenced Year(s):2014
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 ...
Principal Investigator:Marsh, Philip Licenced Year(s):2016201520142013
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...

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, ...

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...
Principal Investigator:de Rham, Laurent Licenced Year(s):
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...

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...
Principal Investigator:Povey, Andrew Licenced Year(s):20042003
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...

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...
