Lake Melville Oceanography Study

The research will establish a hydrodynamic numerical model of the forces which exert influences on the circulation and the residence time (amount of time water spends in a given body of water) of Lake Melville, Labrador. The study seeks to understand the water properties in the lake, and how the development of nearby hydroelectric projects and climate change affect the oceanography of the lake. The research helps to analyze the effects of industrial activities on the hydrodynamics of this particular water body, which may help in current and future projects concerning similar oceanography.
