Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: 1) Improve our understanding of microbial carbon-processing in Mackenzie Delta lakes and how it is affected by the changing water levels; and 2) Decipher the impact of water level changes on the ability of the Mackenzie Delta to affect riverine nutrient flow to the ocean. Specific activities for the coming field season include the following: (G...

IPY-SCARF: International Polar Year - Study of Canadian Arctic River-Delta Fluxes
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: The aims of the various components of this project are to develop a hydraulic model for the Mackenzie Delta by observation of ice jams for calibration of the model, assessing ice cover and breakup patterns, linking an ice-ocean-atmosphere model of storm surges to the hydraulic model, measuring water stored in off-channel areas, improving information on lake-flooding for off-channel areas, quantify...
