Erosion of old organic carbon in the Mackenzie River Basin
Principal Investigator: Hilton, Robert G
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The research team will collect a new sample set to better quantify the carbon source, age and fate in one of the largest rivers draining the high latitudes. Based on previous work, the team have identified three priority objectives for sample collection in the Mackenzie River: 1) Collect river depth profile sediment samples across the major changes in the annual hydrograph. 2) Sample paired rive...

ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...

Modelling Temperature and Heat Fluxes of Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Schertzer, William M.
Licensed Year(s): 2009 2008
Summary: The objectives of this project are to measure meteorology, heat fluxes, and physical limnological components of Great Bear Lake; to quantify the variability in these characteristics; to model the thermal structure of the lake under current and changed climate conditions; and to assess the effect of climate on the temperature structure and heat fluxes of the lake. This research is part of the IP...

Evaluation of extreme events (ice jams) and deep scour holes on Mackenzie Delta Channels
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This is Year 3 of a research project that examines extreme flooding and deep scour holes along the Mackenzie River. Ice jamming has a great influence on channel construction and destruction, formation of deep scour holes in the bed of channels, and flooding of the adjacent delta landscape. Hence, ice jams are of practical concern in the development of infrastructure, ecology of the delta and day-t...

Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES)
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licensed Year(s): 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims to understand the biogeochemical and ecological consequences of sea ice variability on the Mackenzie Shelf (Beaufort Sea) and provide the infor...

The Effectiveness of a Diversion Channel in Providing Fish Habitat in NWT Barrenlands
Principal Investigator: Jones, Nicholas
Licensed Year(s): 2001 2000 1999
Summary: Recently BHP Diamonds Canada has "dewatered" a number of lakes and created a diversion channel to re-route water around two open pit mines. The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of the diversion canal as habitat before and after it is enhanced with fish habitat structures and also in relation to natural streams in the area. In early spring Arctic grayling will be captured in we...

Hydrographic Surveys: Canada's Western Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Lusk, Barry M.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: Ships of many types and ships designed for many purposes transmit Canada's SouthernNorthwest Passage. Each of these ships posesa potential danger to the passengers & crews aboard as well as to the environment. The Canadian Hydrographic Service is conducting surveys to produce nautical charts to assist ships to travel safely. Potentially shallow passages will be surveyed to ensure safe navigation c...

Licence #4012
Principal Investigator: Viren, Tom
Licensed Year(s): 1984
Summary: To carry out bathymetric surveys of the Slave River channel, topographic surveys of the river banks, and to establish permanent benchmarks along the river at approximately two kilometer intervals....
