Hay River Ice Jam Study
Principal Investigator: Hicks, Faye E
Licensed 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...

Freezeup and breakup observations on the Mackenzie River near Fort Providence
Principal Investigator: Hicks, Faye E
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: The researchers will continue their monitoring of ice formation and breakup at the Mackenzie River crossing near Fort Providence. Data will be collected on water levels, river velocity, ice thickness and strength, and snow depth. This information will contribute to our knowledge of ice formation and breakup at this crossing, with a goal of predicting freezeup and breakup events....
