Paleohydrology and paleoecology of the Slave River Delta
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Brent BBW
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This research program focuses on high-resolution reconstruction of past hydrology, ecology and climate of the Peace-Athabasca (PAD) and Slave River deltas (SRD) from natural archives, including lake sediments and tree rings, supported by comprehensive field-based studies of modern hydrology, limnology and aquatic ecology. The PAD and SRD have broad ecological and cultural significance and are ecos...

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 project is to develop a biogeochemical model for lakes in the Mackenzie Delta, and ultimately, a more general ecosystem model for floodplains and deltas of major world rivers that will help assess the effects of multiple stresses on rivers resulting from global change. Numerous major river deltas in the Arctic circumpolar region are lake-rich because of thermokarst effec...

Search for Springs Reported by McConnell in 1890
Principal Investigator: Grasby, Stephen
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: This project is a continuation of work begun in 2004. The researchers were not able to do their field work in 2004, and will try again in 2005. Historic mention is made of springs at Windy Point on the north shore of Great Slave Lake. The research team...

Reconstructing Holocene history of the Mackenzie River Valley from fluvial sediment records, Fort Simpson to Arctic Red River
Principal Investigator: Coulombe-Pontbriand, Moise
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: The study will attempt to reconstruct the past 10,000 year geomorphological and hydrological history of the Mackenzie River using sedimentological records of fluvial deposits. The researcher will travel by Zodiac boat from Jean-Marie River to Point Separ...

Late Quaternary hydrological and climatic history of the lower MacKenzie River basin
Principal Investigator: Beierle, Brandon
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: The research team will obtain sediment cores from a series of lakes near Reindeer Station and Inuvik for the purpose of reconstructing the hydrological, climatological and geomorphic history of the lower Mackenzie River basin. The research will require fieldwork between 15 April and 25 April. Research will involve the development of a high-resolution paleoenvironmental record based on lake sedime...

Paleo-hydrology in the Arctic
Principal Investigator: CLARK, Ian D.
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999
Summary: Data will be collected that can help to predict climate of the near future and determine the impact of temperature change on northern hydrology. The investigator will attempt to better understand how methane-producing bacteria function giving us a better understanding of their feedback on climate change. The research area is a quarry along the Dempster highway east of Campbell Lake. This site w...
