Objective(s): To understand coastal processes and predict the effects of changing climate on the Canadian Beaufort Sea Coast.

Project Description: The researchers will revisit sites which were investigated in the past several years to look for changes which can be related to changing environmental parameters like, storms, floods, etc. They will also be observing the recovery of eroded areas which were effected by the fall, 1993 storm. Erosion will be measured and bathymetric profiles completed. The depth of the active layer in the beach and nearshore zones will be probed using a jet drill.
