Inuvik SuperDARN Radar Facility
Principal Investigator: McWilliams, Kathryn
Licenced Year(s): 2019 2018 2017
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. The radar installation is rather simple, requiring transmitting and receiving electronics in a small bu...


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. ...


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....


Licence #2516
Principal Investigator: Oguti, Takasi
Licenced Year(s): 1979
Summary: To conduct a study of the aurora borealis (northern lights) and its effect on the earth's magnetic field in the atmosphere and ground. Studies of HF waves may also be conducted....
