The primary objective of this research continues to be driven towards the safe and sustainable industrial and community development of the Beaufort Sea coastal nearshore region. The research provides the means to improve knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and reduce the impacts of natural...

The strategic objective of this expedition is continued long-term monitoring of Canadian Beaufort Sea. The specific objectives are:
1) to recover, service and re-deploy oceanographic moorings carrying instruments that measure ice thickness and ridging, storm waves, sea level, ocean current, temperature and salinity, mammal vocalization, underwater sound and plankton; and,
2) to visit oceanogra...
Principal Investigator:Dallimore, Scott R Licenced Year(s):
Industry and regulators require information on seismicity and its effect on engineering structures both at a regional and local scale. The primary source of this information is the National Building Code of Canada’s Seismic Hazard Value map. Ongoing work undertaken as part of the 2015 revision of this map suggests that an increased seismic (earthquake) hazard exists in the Mackenzie-Beaufort area....

In 2012, ConocoPhillips Canada, as operator of the Amauligak lease, initiated the three-year Amauligak Study Program. The Study Program will identify and determine the feasibility of the most appropriate development concept for potential production from the Amauligak lease located in the Canadian Beaufort Sea. Should ConocoPhillips proceed to the development phase with Amauligak, it is anticipated...

The agencies involved are undertaking this research to acquire geoscience knowledge about the outer shelf of the Beaufort Sea with intent to address knowledge gaps related to thawing of subsea permafrost and gas hydrates.
The Program activities include:
-Vessel mobilization and demobilization Multi-channel 2D seismic data acquisition Oceanographic and bathymetric data collection Sub-bottom prof...
Principal Investigator:Fabijan, Michael F Licenced Year(s):
This study will focus on collecting information from Inuvialuit elders and harvesters, both male and female. 20-25 members from each community will be interviewed. The area of concern will be the lease area (EL 420) and adjacent lands, including Pelly Is...
Principal Investigator:Solomon, Steve Licenced Year(s):
The primary objectives of the project are to map the coastline of the Canadian Beaufort Sea in terms of its sensitivity to coastal erosion and monitor changes in the coastline, and to collect information on the morphology of the coast and the sediments which compose it for use in developing and calibrating predictive models of coastal change. In order to achieve these objectives previously proven ...
