PolarDARN (The northern hemisphere polar portion of the international SuperDARN (Super Dual Auroral Radar
Principal Investigator: Sofko, George J
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2004
Summary: Just as high and low pressure systems drive normal weather, high and low voltages drive space weather. The radar network is designed to measure these voltage patterns several hundred kilometers above the ground and these patterns project out into space along the Earth's magnetic field lines. This information is critical to personnel in space and to maintenance of the satellite telecommunications. ...

Deep Electromagnetic Studies of the Oldest Archean Craton: A Contribution to the Lithoprobe SNORCLE Transect
Principal Investigator: Jones, Alan
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: Using passive, electromagnetic instrumentation designed and developed for use on the ocean bottom, we will make measurements of the time-varying electromagnet fields caused by the northern lights at 10 lakes, 3 in Nunavut, in the Slave craton. At each lake an instrument will be deployed from a Turbo Beaver float plane and the instrument will drop to the bottom of the lake and start to make recordi...

Ground-based auroral observations in conjunction with the FAST satellite
Principal Investigator: Hallinan, Thomas J.
Licenced Year(s): 1996
Summary: The observations will be made by an all-sky TV camera. The camera is computer controlled and should only require minimal attendance. The camera will record the auroras over Fort Smith with 1 minute resolution, storing the images on coputer disk and transferring them to the Internet. Hoping to use the Upper Air Station as this facility would be ideal for optical observations....

Shaped charge injection of field-aligned barium and calcium plasma to investigate the physics of mass-dependent ion acceleration.
Principal Investigator: Wescott, E.M.
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994
Summary: Beams of barium and calcium ions, from a rocket launched from Poker Flats, Alaska, will be released into the aurora. These beams will be observed using two low-light-level TV systems set up outside the Upper Air Station in Fort Smith. Each system will be filtered for barium ion light and calcium ion light respectively. The data will be recorded on video tape. The experiment will take place nea...

Magnetometer array for cusp and cleft studies (MACCS)
Principal Investigator: Engebretson, Mark
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: In previous years, instruments were installed in Clyde River, Igloolik, Pelly Bay, Gjoa Haven, Pangnirtung, Coral Harbour, Repulse Bay, Cape Dorset and Iqaluit in order to measure the earth's magnetic field. Data will be collected continuously by these instruments, called magnetometers, for a period of several years. This information will help us to understand the nature of the aurora borealis....

Analysis of GPS Satellite Signals in the Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Krakiwsky, E.J.
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: Two GPS satellite receivers will be stationed at the Yellowknife Airport in a roving land vehicle. Solutions will be made to the vehicle's position to determine whether the signals have been adversely affected....

Norman Wells Auroral Observatory for SPIRIT II
Principal Investigator: Olson, John V.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1991
Summary: The Norman Wells Observatory has demonstrated to be a very good site to place a remote aurora monitoring observatory to support a scientific experiment called SPIRIT II. For this project, the researchers will continue to investigate the aurora's strength and position, magnetic disturbances etc. The observatory at Norman Wells fills a gap in the internationally collected and shared auroral data se...

The effects of the ionospheric auroral zone on the propagation of very low frequency VLF/LF and HF radio waves
Principal Investigator: Bickel, John
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1990 1989
Summary: The Researchers will continue to collect data using an antenna and a computer operated VLF (very low frequency) signal receiving and recording equipment....

Northern Ellesmere Wintering Over Project 1990/91
Principal Investigator: Bird, D. le R.
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The researcher will carry out monthly collections of snow for analysis; ice algae from ice cores; ice crystals for analysis; snow samples during snow storms and a three-hourly traditional meteorology program....

Licence #5143
Principal Investigator: Oguti, Takasi
Licenced Year(s): 1985
Summary: Record and photograph aurora (northern lights), related natural electromagnetic waves and geomagnetic pulsations. Another research on Doppler shift of HF waves (receiving only) may be added....
