AbstractThe Mackenzie River (Deh-Cho, Kuukpak, Fleuve du 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)
The goal of the Environmental Geoscience program (EGP) is to distinguish the environmental effects of natural resource development from those produced by natural processes, and to develop new approaches to support the sustainable use and development of Canada's natural resources through informed decision-making. The ultimate outcome of EGP is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of Canadian environmental regulation and oversight. By developing innovative geoscience for environmental stewardship, as well as increasing public and private sector access to research findings, decision-makers have a greater capacity and are more empowered to carry out and review environmental assessments. This SP highlights the 5 public presentations provided on May 11, 2021 as well as all updates from all projects under the EGP.
