Summary

This study investigates the runoff process and groundwater behavior in a subarctic watershed called Wolf Creek Research Basin, in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada. This basin is underlain by discontinuous permafrost that is typical of high latitude watersheds. Goundwater supports the stream flow year round and dominated the hydrology in most of the study period as baseflow. The baseflow was concentrated in dissolved ions. However, the baseflow was diluted during the melt season in May and June of 2012. Multiple chemical and isotopic tracers were used to develop a robust three-component (groundwater, soilwater and precipitation) mixing model for runoff generation. The concentrations of weathering ions decreased with the increased [...]
