Influence of changing active-layer thickness on permafrost peatland trace gas exchanges and carbon balance
Principal Investigator: Sonnentag, Oliver
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The project of the present application is the continuation of year-round eddy covariance measurements of carbon, water and energy fluxes at Scotty Creek, established in 2013 as part of licence #15816. The key methodology is tower-mounted micrometeorological measurements around the eddy covariance technique using an open-path infra-red gas analyzer and a sonic anemometer. These measurements are ...


Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Levesque, Keith R
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. The knowledge generated from this multi- year program is integrated into regional impact studie...


O-buoy measurements of ozone, carbon dioxide and bromine oxide over frozen surface of Hudson Bay and Arctic Ocean
Principal Investigator: Bottenheim, Jan W
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The goal of this project is to take part in establishment of a long-term observation network to measure concentrations of two important greenhouse gases (ozone and carbon dioxide) as well as bromine oxide. Bromine oxide is a key chemical reagent determining the presence of ozone accompanied with full set of meteorological data and detailed geographic information across the Arctic Ocean and Hudson ...


ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...


Study on the Vertical Distribution of Ice in Arctic Clouds (VERDI)
Principal Investigator: Bierwirth, Eike A
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: Climate change and sea ice change affects all who live in the north. The aim of this project is to improve understanding of the physical processes in Arctic clouds and their contribution to the current changes in the polar environment, and thereby reducing uncertainties in regional and global model simulations important for future weather and climate prediction. These research activities combin...


Exchange of carbon gas fluxes over low arctic tundra
Principal Investigator: Lafleur, Peter M
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2007 2005 2004
Summary: The research team intends to study how important greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide and methane, are exchanged between tundra surfaces and the atmosphere. They will measure these exchanges over various tundra types and relate them to environmental variables such as soil properties and weather, in hopes of understanding more about how future climate change will impact the land surface and how these ...


Polar Airborne Measurements and Arctic Regional Climate Model Simulation Project
Principal Investigator: Herber, Andreas
Licenced Year(s): 2011 2009
Summary: The main aim of these weather and air quality studies is to improve the understanding of the processes in the Arctic atmosphere and to use these measurements to improve the performance of regional and global climate models of the Arctic. The aim of the sea ice studies is to obtain a snapshot of ice thickness in a vast region of the Arctic, and to create an inventory of Arctic sea ice volume. Th...


Modelling Temperature and Heat Fluxes of Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Schertzer, William M.
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application No.1100. The four main objectives of this research are: 1) to conduct observations on Great Bear Lake to measure meteorology, heat fluxes, and physical limnological components; 2) to model the thermal structure of Great Bear Lake under current climate and climate changed conditions; 3) to quantify the variability in the meteor...


Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) System Study - Part 1 (Ship-based research)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.

Summary: CONDITION: This licence has been issued subject to the environmental terms and conditions recommended by the Environmental Impact Screening Committee. For copies of these recommendations please contact the EISC.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...


Modelling the Evaporation and Heat Balance of Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Rouse, Wayne R
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This is the second year of a study that measures the water balance and thermal regimes of Great Bear Lake so that the researchers can determine the linkages between the lake's behaviour and the atmosphere above. Lake temperatures will be measured with se...
