Identifying sources of mercury in Arctic rivers
Principal Investigator: Zdanowicz, Christian M
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The goal of this project is to identify and quantify (measure) the different possible sources of toxic mercury that is transported in rivers of the Mackenzie River basin, all the way down to the Beaufort Sea. In particular, the research team want to establish how much mercury comes from "modern" sources (like distant air pollution, runoff from rain/snow, wash-out from surface soils, etc.) and how ...

The Arctic Great Rivers Observatory III
Principal Investigator: Holmes, Robert Max
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The Arctic Great Rivers Observatory project studies the six largest rivers in the Arctic: the Mackenzie and Yukon Rivers in North America, and the Ob', Yenisey, Lena, and Kolyma Rivers in Russia. The research team are interested in how climate change is impacting Arctic rivers. The team make measurements of the concentration of naturally-occurring chemicals (like carbon and nitrogen) and try to de...

Climate Geochemistry
Principal Investigator: Guo, Laodong
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The purpose of this study is to collect river waters to determine the concentrations of dissolved organic carbon, particulate organic carbon, and nutrients, including nitrate, phosphate and silicate, and to examine their temporary variations related to c...

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: Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre & will consist of field and lab work focused on 6 to 9 small lakes in the Delta near Inuvik. Field work will involve day trips by boat or helicopter to delta lakes. Two specific studies to be done include: 1) Evaluation of the rates of growth among groups of microscopic aquatic plants among a set of lakes that range from non-transparent to relatively transp...

Riverine inputs of contaminants to the Arctic Ocean
Principal Investigator: Swyripa, Murray
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: Northward flowing rivers are thought to be major ways in which contaminants are introduced to the Arctic Ocean. As part of an on-going study, river water and sediments will be collected over the course of the year and assessed for the presence of contaminants. A total of 12 rivers in the Canadian arctic mainland will be sampled in this study, including the Mackenzie, Coppermine, Burnside, Ellice...

Contemporary channel characteristics and behaviour along the lower reaches of major tributaries of the Mackenzie River (from Norman Wells to the Mackenzie Delta)
Principal Investigator: Brooks, Greg
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: The research will provide basic information on the characteristics of the rivers and valleys that are major tributaries emptying into the Mackenzie River. The tributaries to be studied include the Carcajou, Mountain, Hume, Ramparts, Hare Indian, Ontaratue, Arctic Red and Peel Rivers. Little is known about the lower 5-7 km portion of these rivers. The information collected will include both aeri...
