Water temperature has been monitored on the Liard River and Yukon River at Carmacks every two weeks for decades, as part of the Pacific-Yukon Long-term Trend Monitoring (PYLTM) study.
(11) Simpson reported in 1821 that the previous year the hunters had waited for the HBC well into the summer and then delivered their goods to the NWC on the Liard River. (12)
Additionally, individuals were recorded and captured about 75 km south of our location at Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park, British Columbia (Wilkinson and others 1995; Bradbury and others 1997).
We defined 2 survey areas: 1) the Mackenzie River Valley (MRV) extending from Blackwater River in the north to Jean Marie River in the south including the communities of Wrigley, Fort Simpson, and Jean Marie River, and 2) the Liard River Valley (LRV) extending from Poplar River in the north and the British Columbia-Northwest Territories boundary (60[degrees] N latitude) in the south including the communities of Nahanni Butte and Fort Liard (Fig.
Liard River Hot Springs Provincial Park is 765 kilometres northwest of Dawson Creek on Hwy 97.
It was also at Fort Simpson that Tweedsmuir heard of the rugged, almost inaccessible region of the South Nahanni River, flowing from the north into the Liard River, and believed at the time to be an area of great mineral wealth.
To illustrate, Figure 4 shows such a surge that propagated down the Liard River. In 10 days (from 14 to 23 July 1977), the climate station of Watson Lake received 54 mm of rain, and the discharge at the Upper Crossing hydrometric station rose steadily (not obvious in the figure because of the plotting scale), while 29 mm of rain recorded at Muncho Lake increased the discharge at the Lower Crossing.
The nearest records of Vonhof and others (1997) of Long-eared Myotis and Long-legged Myotis were along the Liard River (at a cabin near Liard Hotsprings), and on the Fort Nelson River approximately 50 km upriver of its confluence with the Liard, respectively.

For example, Environment Canada actively collects water chemistry for many of the major Mackenzie River tributaries near their mouths, including the Liard River near its confluence with the Mackenzie main stem, the Peace and Athabasca Rivers above Lake Athabasca, the Great Bear River at the outflow of Great Bear Lake, and the Peel River above its entry into the Mackenzie Delta.
These unconfirmed locations in the Central Plains include the Liard River Valley, Trout Fake, several locations in the Mackenzie River Valley between Fort Simpson and Fort Providence, and north of the Alberta border.
In the majority of flow records, the breakup event is heralded by a steep rise in the hydrograph, which signals the end of the low-flow season (e.g., the Liard River shown in Fig.
