An Integrated Sea Ice Project for BREA: Detection, Motion, and RADARSAT Mapping of Extreme Ice Features in the Southern Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objective of this study is to provide information on the thickness distribution, movement, and characteristics of different types of sea ice within the Beaufort Sea Region. The focus will be on hummocked multi-year sea ice referred to as Extreme Ice Features (EIFs). These EIFs are poorly understood, and would be the most hazardous to any engineered structure in the southern Beaufort Sea (such ...

Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) System Study - Part 1 (Ship-based research)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: The Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) system study is designed to examine the importance of climate processes in changing the nature of a flaw lead system and the Arctic marine environment in the Northern Hemisphere, and the effect these changes will have on the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, carbon fluxes, and greenhouse gases. Using the Canadian Research Icebreaker (CCGS Amundsen), the team ...

Twin Otter Aerial Surveys of Sea Ice During Spring Melt
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of the research is to produce estimations of the reduction in sea ice in the ISR. Eight aerial surveys are planned for approximately May 1, 14, 31, June 14, 28, July 5 and 15 (weather and aircraft availability dependent). Each survey will b...

A Seasonal Sea Ice Monitoring Site (SIMS)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher and his team will measure various aspects of snow covering the ice surface through the seasonal transition from winter to summer. The observations will coincide with overflights of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) remote sensing aircraft and various satellite sensors. Observations from the ice surface will be correlated with information contained within the remote sensing data....
