Estimation of Maximum Lake Depth from the Surrounding Topography; towards a Regional Assessment of the Occurrence of Taliks below Arctic Lakes

Presenter: Anne-Marie LeBlanc

Open taliks, areas of unfrozen ground, are mainly found beneath large and deep lakes that do not freeze to their bottom.

Modeling Contaminant and Nutrient Transport in Permafrost-Affected Groundwater Systems

Presenter: Aaron Mohammed

Understanding the impacts of permafrost freeze-thaw dynamics on groundwater flow and solute transport is imperative to quantify terrestrial feedbacks to climate change
