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 regio...


Response of coastal sea ice properties of the Mackenzie Delta to climate change
Principal Investigator: Prinsenberg, Simon J.
Licenced Year(s): 2012
Summary: Under this project, plans are to collect ice and snow thickness and video data with helicopter-borne sensors during winter ice surveys conducted over the pack ice off the Mackenzie Delta. The new data sets and data from two previous smaller surveys will contribute to the project’s objectives to determine the winter variability of the ice and snow properties of the land-fast and mobile ice cover of...


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...


Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) System Study - Part 1 (Ship-based research)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: 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 Northern Hemisphere, and the effect these changes will have on the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, carbon fluxes, and greenhouse gases. Using the Canadian Research Icebreaker (CCGS Amundsen), the team ...


Hazards, Sea-level Rise, and Climate Change Impacts on Arctic Coasts
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to; 1) monitor coastal stability and the processes which affect it (winds, waves, sea ice, etc); 2) map coastal features, sediment properties, and ice conditions in the nearshore regions of the Mackenzie Delta an...


Environmental and Sea Level Change in the Northwestern Arctic Archipelago
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This research is concerned with the nature and style of past glaciations as well as the history of sea level and climatic changes in the western Arctic. The broad objective is to obtain a long term paleoclimatic record (before the arrival of the Pre-Dors...


Twin Otter Aerial Surveys of Sea Ice During Spring Melt
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of the research is to produce estimations of the reduction in sea ice in the ISR. Eight aerial surveys are planned for approximately May 1, 14, 31, June 14, 28, July 5 and 15 (weather and aircraft availability dependent). Each survey will b...


Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES)
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims to understand the biogeochemical and ecological consequences of sea ice variability on the Mackenzie Shelf (Beaufort Sea) and provide the infor...


Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES)
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: Given the possibility of a sustained reduction of the ice cover of Arctic shelves in response to climate warming, the Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims at understanding the biogeoch...


Younger Dryas and Postglacial Threshold Events in the Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Hodgson, D.A.
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: The objectives are to establish: 1) the end of the last glaciation flows on northwest Victoria Island (roughly 12,000 to 10,000 years ago), by examining the landforms left by the moving ice; 2) the changes with time in the nature of the postglacial raise...
