Glacier mass balance of the Melville South Ice Cap
Principal Investigator: Burgess, David O
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this research is to characterize the long-term (>50 years) climatic conditions and annual rate of mass change for the Melville ice cap, NWT. Glacier mass balance is defined as the difference between the amount of snow accumulated on a glacier (generally termed winter balance) and the amount lost due to melt (summer balance) over the course of a given year. Due to logistical co...

Present and Past Hydrology, Ecology and Climate of the Mackenzie Basin Deltas
Principal Investigator: Wolfe, Brent BBW
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: Summer 2005 field activities will focus on continuing multi-year studies of the modern hydrology and ecology of the Slave River Delta. The aim of this research is to improve knowledge of changes in lake water balance and chemistry and the subsequent responses of aquatic plants over seasonal and inter-annual time-scales under varying climatic and hydrological conditions. Overall, this information...

Modelling the Evaporation and Heat Balance of Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Rouse, Wayne R
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This is the second year of a study that measures the water balance and thermal regimes of Great Bear Lake so that the researchers can determine the linkages between the lake's behaviour and the atmosphere above. Lake temperatures will be measured with se...

Tundra Hydrology and Chemistry, Daring Lake, NWT
Principal Investigator: English, Mike
Licensed Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: The objectives of the research are to examine how increasing active layer depth, surficial geology, vegetation, slope and aspect impact changes in shallow groundwater and surface stream chemistry in two subbasins of the Daring Lake basin in the headwater...

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...

Modelling the energy and water balance and characteristics of lakes in the Mackenzie River Basin.
Principal Investigator: Rouse, Wayne R
Licensed Year(s): 2001
Summary: The field work associated with the proposed study will consist of the collection of climate data, such as air temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, amount of rain fall, water temperatures and light penetration into the lake. Similar equipment will be used to collect this data at all sites. Air temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction, water temperatures and light penetration...

MAGS Moisture Budget Studies (using instrumental weather balloons)
Principal Investigator: Strong, G.S.
Licensed Year(s): 1998
Summary: The purpose of this study is to obtain quantitative information on atmospheric temperatures, moisture, and winds from ground level to 15,000 km (or higher) above sea level (ASL), using instrumented weather balloons (radiosondes). It is proposed to transport the instrumentation and other items by truck to Fort Simpson airport. The system is self contained and can be installed in hours upon arrival....

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: Evaluation of the strength of methane emissions from lakes in the Mackenzie Delta relative to lakes on the adjacent arctic tundra. Will involve collecting water and sediment samples from 27 lakes in the Mackenzie Delta near Inuvik and from an additional 27 lakes located within the Havik Pak Creek and Trail Valley Creek study basins. Evaluation of diatom (algae) communities as predictors of flood...

Mackenzie Delta Hydrology and Ecosystem Interactions
Principal Investigator: Marsh, Philip
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: This long term study is being conducted to assist in understanding the factors controlling water levels and the availability of nutrients in a variety of lakes in the Mackenzie Delta....

Hydrologic studies in the NWT in 1987.
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licensed Year(s): 1987
Summary: To study river ice jams and break up in the Fort Simpson region, to study Mackenzie River and Delta ice break up as well as the water balance in Mackenzie Delta Lakes. To study snow-soil interactions near Resolute Bay....
