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 ...
Sedimentary structural indicators of Arctic terrestrial and aquatic processes
Annually and subannually laminated lacustrine sediments potentially contain a wide range of information that can be interpreted for paleoenvironmental reconstructions. These laminae are produced by the physical and ...
Paleolimnological assessment of Holocene climatic and environmental change in two lakes located in different regions of the Canadian Arctic tundra
Paleoclimatic research in the Canadian Arctic has increased in recent decades; however, there is still much to learn about the nature and extent of past climate change in this vast, environmentally sensitive region. This ...
Limnological and paleolimnological investigations of environmental change in three distinct ecosystem types, Canadian High Arctic
The biological remains preserved in the sediments of Arctic lakes and ponds in the Canadian High Arctic are important indicators of environmental change, especially as long-term instrumental data are often lacking. Although ...
Shrub expansion in the low Arctic: The influence of snow and vegetation feedbacks on nitrogen cycling
Climate change has coincided with expansion of deciduous shrub species in the Arctic. Increased deciduous vegetation in the tundra could have profound implications on regional climate, carbon balance, and biogeochemical ...
