The Mackenzie Delta is the second largest northern delta in the world. The water from the Delta entering the Beaufort Sea has a significant impact on its dynamics. Areas in the Delta were surveyed using LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging). The goals of this study were to characterize the...
Masters thesis. Analysis of time lapse photography in the field and from the air indicates that the shape of an eroding bank is positively correlated with the erosion process and the rate and character of erosion. Studies carried out in southern Mackenzie River Delta.
Brown Bear (Ursus arctos) Predation of Broad Whitefish (Coregonus nasus) in the Mackenzie Delta Region, Northwest TerritoriesDownload
On 2 October 2007, we observed evidence of at least one brown bear (Ursus arctos) predating and caching broad whitefish (Coregonus nasus) at Pete’s Creek, a tributary of the Mackenzie River, Northwest Territories. While predation on whitefish by brown bears has been reported as traditional...
Doctoral thesis. Study of the red-backed vole on Mackenzie Delta sites from 1971 to 1973.
Comprehensive, in-situ study of naturally occurring creep in ice-rich permafrost soil on a steep slope on the Great Bear River. A detailed surficial geology mapping along the Great Bear River was carried out in order to determine the most suitable field site. Coincidentally, the slope is situated...
Numbers, reproduction and growth of Clethrionomys rutilus (Mammalia: Cricetidae) from islands in the upper Mackenzie River and adjacent mainlandDownload
Masters thesis. Populations of the northern redbacked vole, Clethrionomys rutilus, were studied on seven islands in the upper Mackenzie River, and at two sites on adjacent mainland.
Report of study to provide qualitative and some quantitative observations of design and performance of Dempster Highway in Yukon and NWT 5 years after construction of its final phase (1979). Also suggests engineering recommendations and design improvements to alleviate problems arising from...
This study was part the Canadian International Polar Year (IPY) project entitled Study of Canadian Arctic River-delta Fluxes (IPY-SCARF), aimed at quantifying fluxes from the Mackenzie Delta channels towards the Beaufort Sea. The flow and water level data collected during the study period from...
The main objective of this study was to describe the overflow of freshwater onto the sea ice surface in the Mackenzie Delta and to investigate the hydraulic behaviour of the upwelling and strudel events. This study was performed from the analysis of data collected during field investigations,...
Masters thesis. A study to examine the impact of participation in organized sport programs on the acculturative processes occuring among indigenous northern youth of the Mackenzie Delta, in particular the TEST ski program.
