Abstract

Three small run-off plots, located in north-central Banks Island, were used in a reconnaissance study of the hydrologic and geomorphic importance of downslope water movement during the summer of 1977. Positive correlations were observed between net radiation, sensible heat transfer and run-off production. In addition summer precipitation generated surface flow with low run-off coefficients. Suspended and dissolved sediment concentrations in surface run-off were low suggesting that slopewash is not a major denudational process in this environment. Some support is given to the concept of partial area contribution to run-off in permafrost regions.
