Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Flow of the Mackenzie River has been modelled. The model uses climate information from the head of the river in British Columbia to the mouth in the Northwest Territories. First, the model uses present day climate to establish river flow and to compare it to present day measured rates. The model then uses various accepted climate scenarios to determine how the river might respond. The results indicate that the river may increase or decrease in flow, depending on which scenario is chosen. This report simply reports the river flow under these climate scenarios, it gives no preference to any particular scenario.
