Correlation of water quality parameters of a disturbed slump and an undisturbed river bank on the east branch of the Mackenzie River.
Principal Investigator: Hansen, Jeremy R
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective is to investigate a disturbed slump site and an undisturbed river bank to measure and compare what is possibly melting/flowing/leaching into the river system possibly due to climate change. Physical descriptions of both sites combined with temperature, potential of hydrogen (pH), TSS (total suspended solids), TDS (total dissolved solids), and turbidity will be collected, analysed, an...

Determining critical design elements that bridge virtual and physical learning about the Mackenzie River.
Principal Investigator: Swallow, Michelle N
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objectives of this research are: (1) to gain input from practicing NWT elementary school teachers about the design features for an online learning environment and resource focused on the Mackenzie River and system; (2) to develop a prototype of a WWW site for use by teachers and students in learning about the Mackenzie River; and (3) to field test the prototype WWW site with representative edu...

Stock Delineation of Fish Species in the Mackenzie River
Principal Investigator: Millar, Nathan P
Licensed Year(s): 2006
Summary: This study involves the determination of the population structure of fish in the Mackenzie River. Specific objectives include the delineation of stocks of three fish species: loche (Lota lota), crookedback (Coregonus clupeaformis) and coney (Stenodus leucicthys), and the identification of downstream fisheries as mixed-stock or single-stock fisheries. A population genetics approach will be employed...

Regional Terrain Hazards Mapping
Principal Investigator: Couture, Rejean
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The main objectives of the field reconnaissance at landslide sites are as follows: o To visit landslide sites that exhibit on-going movement in order to qualify the rate of movement; o To identify main failure mechanisms and factors that contributed to slope failures; o To validate previous data collected through airphoto interpretation and remote sensing techniques; o To collect soil samples ...

Climate Geochemistry
Principal Investigator: Guo, Laodong
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The purpose of the study is to better understand how climate and environmental changes affect river water chemistry and material export fluxes, and in turn, how biogeochemical tracers can be used to examine the impacts and biogeochemical consequences of environmental changes. This is the second year of a three-year study. The researchers plan to sample the Mackenzie River starting in late Apri...

The Biological and Physical Characterization of Small Tributaries to the Mackenzie River in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Dick, Terry A.
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: This research will study small second order streams entering the Mackenzie River in order to 1) develop descriptors to measure physical aspects of small stream environments; and 2) determine which biological organisms to use to monitor stream health. Nin...

2004 Aquatic Effects Monitoring, Imperial Oil Resources NWT Limited
Principal Investigator: Fraikin, Chris
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: This research is for aquatic studies as part of Imperial Oil Resources NWT Limited overall Aquatic Effects Monitoring program. Water samples, suspended sediment samples, and bottom sediment samples will be collected for chemical analysis. Samples will be...

ARDEX: Responses to Climate Change in Northern Aquatic Ecosystems
Principal Investigator: Vincent, Warwick F.
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: The aim of this research is to define the influence of the Mackenzie Delta floods on the biological processes and patterns that persist in these shallow water ecosystems. The researchers are looking for links between the sediment on the bottom of the lak...

Extreme Flooding Events in the Mackenzie River Basin
Principal Investigator: de Rham, Laurent
Licensed 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...

Preglacial channel and sediment-fill of the ancestral Mackenzie River Valley between Wrigley and Fort Good Hope, NWT
Principal Investigator: Smith, Derald
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The Mackenzie River Valley, from Wrigley to Fort Good Hope, will be surveyed in order to document the nature of the river prior to the last glaciation. Sediments will be sampled in order to determine their age (using radiocarbon dating techniques). Field work will take place along the Mackenzie River between Wrigley and the mouth of the Redstone River, in the lower section of Gt. Bear River, and...
