The Peel River, carrying much of the runoff from the northern Yukon, joins in the delta at a point northeast of Fort McPherson.

Little information has been published regarding the general geology of the Mackenzie Delta region. On the western side of the Delta bedrock appears to consist largely of Mesozoic sedimentary formations.
Coal‐bearing rocks occur some 25 miles northwest of Aklavik and a six‐foot coal seam with almost vertical dip is worked at Moose River Coal.

Canada’s Mackenzie River, the country’s longest, spills out of Great Slave Lake, just north of the border between Alberta and Northwest Territories.
The river flows northwest, skirting the northern ranges of the Rocky Mountains before widening into a marshy, lake-dotted delta. The delta empties into the Arctic Ocean via the Beaufort Sea. The overall aim of this study is to improve our understanding of geologic CH 4 emissions on a regional scale in the Mackenzie Delta region, Canada (Fig.
1).Therefore, the purpose of this study is twofold: (i) to map the CH 4 flux and its spatial variability at high spatial resolution and to derive the abundance of geologic CH 4 emission hotspots and (ii) to assess the relative contribution of.

Glacial Lake Mackenzie, with an outlet at Ramparts, was formed before final deglaciation of the region about ka. Aerial photographs fromand were analyzed to obtain measurements of coastal change in the Mackenzie Delta region of the Beaufort Sea.
Changes from to are dominated by retreat of the shoreline with average annual retreat rates of − m a−1, but ranging as high as − m a−1. Rates vary significantly both between and within zones of similar exposure.People.
