Summary

Application of novel hydrological methods for assessing runoff generation in remote northern landscapes is necessary to identify the consequences of climate variability and change. In Old Crow Flats, a lake-rich thermokarst landscape in northern Yukon Territory (Canada), local land users have concerns over the effects of recent lake drainage and fluctuating river discharge on their traditional way of life. In the absence of hydrometric stations, we evaluate the utility of isotopic monitoring of the lower Old Crow River, which is fed by several tributaries and drains the flats, for tracking runoff generation. Isotopic ?snapshots? obtained from 2007, 2008 and 2009 during the recession limb of the spring freshet hydrograph provided characteristic [...]
