Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 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; (2) measure fluxes of water, energy and carbon at two sites, one having tundra as the primary landcover, the other forested; (3) consider the integrated effect of climate on vegetation, snow, permafrost and streamflow; ...

Snow accumulation / runoff in high latitude permafrost basins
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1990
Summary: The Trail Valley Creek site will be accessed by Twin Otter, helicopter and snowmobile, while the Havikpak Creek site will be accessed by foot and snowmobile. We plan to have a small field crew at each site to measure the amount of snow on the ground in the middle of April, and to again return to measure snow melt and the streamflow in mid to late May. Actual timing of the spring melt trip will dep...

Mackenzie Delta Hydrology and Ecosystem Interactions
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: This long-term, ongoing study is aimed at understanding the factors controlling water levels and the availability of nutrients in a variety of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta. This work will allow us to better understand the natural Mackenzie Delta ecosystem, and to make better predictions of the effect of environmental change on the Delta. Cores of sediment will be collected from lake bottoms to d...
