Hydroclimatic influences on suspended sediment delivery in a small, High Arctic catchment
A study of suspended sediment transport dynamics was undertaken in the West River at Cape Bounty, Melville Island, Nunavut. Hydrometerological conditions and sediment transport were measured over three seasons in order ...
Geomorphic and Fluvial Response to Recent Permafrost Disturbances in a High Arctic River, Cape Bounty, Nunavut
Using a sediment budget approach, suspended sediment transport dynamics were studied over the 2010 summer runoff season in the 8 km2 West River catchment at the Cape Bounty Arctic Watershed Observatory (CBAWO), Melville ...
Thermal Evidence for Surface and Subsurface Water Contributions to Baseflow in a High Arctic River
Changes in river temperatures are caused by thermal energy exchanges at the interface between water and the atmosphere and between water, the streambed, and subsurface water. In permafrost regions, deeper active layer ...
