AbstractThe Mackenzie River (Deh-Cho, Kuukpak, Fleuve de Mackenzie) Basin (MRB) is one of the World's largest (4200 km long) and most important freshwater ecosystems.
Climate change is disproportionately affecting high northern latitudes, especially in NW Canada.
How will climate change affect water quantity in the MRB?
Ice jam flooding vs. low water levels.
Carbon storage vs. export.
This project will examine long-term trends and cycles to develop predictive ecohydrological models.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This is the fifth year for the project leaders of the Environmental Geoscience Program (EGP) from the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) within Natural Resources Canada to present their annual scientific updates. Twelve power point presentations illustrate all the project status of all research going on within EGP. Subjects are connected to the following key words: Volcanoes, mercury, dredge disposal at sea, oil spills, diluted bitumen, oil sands, aquifer impacts, induced seismicity, geological storage of carbon, cobalt, climate change, Mackenzie River Basin, permafrost thaw, permafrost geochemistry, and cumulative effects.
