The Ordering of Things: Narrative Geographies of Bloody Falls and the Central Canadian Arctic
This study examines the geographies of the Bloody Falls massacre story, an account of a massacre of a group of Inuit by a group of Dene allegedly witnessed by explorer Samuel Hearne along the Coppermine River in July 1771. ...
High-Latitude Responses of Diatom and Chironomid Assemblages to Regional Climate Changes and Other Environmental Stressors
High-latitude freshwater ecosystems are amongst the most vulnerable to climate change impacts. However, the response to warming is rarely straightforward and may be modulated by local or regional factors, producing variability ...
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 ...
Spatial and temporal patterns of net carbon exchange in the polar semi-desert vegetation type on Melville Island, Nunavut
While studies of mesic tundra vegetation types across latitudinal gradients have shown decreasing levels of net ecosystem exchange (NEE) of carbon dioxide at more northern sites, little work has explored the factors ...
The Effects of Climate on Microalgae Growth in Arctic Wastewater Stabilization Ponds
The research presented in this thesis consists of work conducted in two studies designed to evaluate temperature effects on microalgal growth in Arctic wastewater stabilization ponds (WSPs). These systems are commonly used ...
