Investigations of the water cycle and hydrological processes of the subarctic Canadian Shield
Principal Investigator: Spence, Christopher
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: The objective of this research is to determine the water cycle processes acting in lakes and streams that could affect the streamflow response of Baker Creek and similar streams. A second objective is to understand how processes acting over smaller areas influence those that are predominant over larger areas. The proposed work will take place within a research basin framework. The propose...

Near-surface ground ice in Mackenzie Delta region
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licensed Year(s): 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 2000 1999
Summary: The proposed research will investigate the physical and chemical characteristics of the near-surface ice-rich zone in sediments of the Mackenzie Delta area. The goals of the research are to investigate the relationship between ice-rich permafrost and fo...

2001 Fish Habitat Assessments for Future Mine Road Developments
Principal Investigator: Moore, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: Fish will be collected and released live using seining and electro-fishing techniques. Data collection will also include flow monitoring. All assessments will be completed on watercourses within the Misery Road, Sable Lake Road and Fox Lake Road developments within the mine site. BHP will provide support staff which will include people hired locally....

Modelling the Flow and Storage Components in the Lower Liard River Valley
Principal Investigator: Quinton, William L.
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2001
Summary: The research team will install sensing equipment (water level recorders and rain guages), and stream flow measurements will made during a 5 day field program in June of 2001. An additional 5 day sampling program will occur in August, 2001. Approximately 5 soil samples will be collected in cylinders (30 cm x 10 cm) for the measurement of water transmission properties. Water samples (30 ml) will b...

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 long-term goal of this research is to develop a model of the interacting biogeochemical and hydrologic processes that control the nutrient balance and primary productivity of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta region, and ultimately, a more general model for lakes associated with the flood plains and deltas of major world rivers. Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre will consist of field and lab...

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 site will be accessed by helicopter and snowmobile this year, while the Havikpak Creek site will be accessed by foot and snowmobile. Our field work will be similar to what was done in 2000, with short (<1 week) trips in both April/May and August. Activities at each site will simply include the download of data from the dataloggers on site, and the measurement of snow on the grou...

Water Balance Studies in the Coppermine River Basin: The Chain of Lakes Effect in Space and Time.
Principal Investigator: Maric, Robert
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research team will be based out of Yellowknife. Travel to the Ekati Mine site will be by helicopter; travel on site will be on foot. The research team will be in the field for approximately seven days. Characterization of the hydrologic balance of the system under investigation will be completed by the collection of several hundred water samples (each with an approximate volume of 30 ml) at d...

Snare River Aqautic Study
Principal Investigator: Grabke, Dan
Licensed Year(s): 2000
Summary: In 1999, the Northwest Territories Power Corporation was awarded a 25 year water licence to operate its three hydroelectric plants on the Snare River. Conditions of this water licence included that two studies be done by the Corporation. The first study is an assessment addressing the removal of minimum flow requirements on two of the dams. This study will include a current assessment of fish a...

Spring Melt Hydrological Investigations at Daring Lake, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licensed Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Tthe objective of this study is to continue research examining the hydrological and energy budget of small arctic esker lake basin during the spring melt period. The intent of this research is to understand the relationship between the energy budget and changes in soil moisture, rates of evapotranspiration, and changes in water discharge from a small tundra basin underlain by permafrost. Transpo...

Retrogressive Thaw Slides in the Richardson Range: Climate Change Indicator
Principal Investigator: Lacelle, Denis
Licensed Year(s): 2000
Summary: This is a study of retrogressive thaw sumps produced by the exposure and melting of massive ice in continuous permafrost (Richardson Range, NWT). These sumps are recently occurring and presumably a result of global climate change. This research will recognize retrogressive thaw slumps that have massive ice, identify the type of massive ice (glacier buried or segregated) and measure the rate of ...
