Data analysis will help the company to optimize the firmware, battery requirements and testing regimes needed and finalize products that can then be used in any type of remote and cold locations for extended periods with little or no equipment monitoring.
Several eosFD devices (carbon dioxide monitoring equipment) will be tested to determine usability requirements and to select a winter test ...

The study will measure carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) fluxes at Illisarvik during the peak of the growing season using a combination of eddy covariance and gas chamber methods. The primary objective will be to determine the magnitude of CO2 and CH4 fluxes and determine whether sequestration offsets emission. Secondary objectives will be to observe the temporal and spatial variability of th...

The broad goal of this research is to increase understanding of tundra carbon balance of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and predict into the future the impacts of climate warming on these systems.
Since the research team are interested in all aspects of the tundra carbon balance a variety of methods are employed. These can be broken down into 4 basic categories:
1. Tundra-atmosphere flux...

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. A helicopter video survey of the coastline will be con...
