Toward Predicting Future Tundra Carbon Balance
Principal Investigator: Lafleur, Peter M
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The broad goal of this research is to increase the 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 ...


Development and Testing of Climate Change Monitoring Equipment in the Arctic
Principal Investigator: Layden, Ronald E
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: 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 ...


Measuring Carbon Fluxes at Illisarvik with Eddy Covariance
Principal Investigator: Skeeter, Wesley R
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: 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...

Baseline Data Collection, Yellowknife Gold Project, Tyhee Development Corp.
Principal Investigator: Weagle, Ken V
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The purpose of this fieldwork is for the collection of baseline data to support an anticipated application to the Mackenzie Valley Land and Water Board. There are 5 main components of the program. 1) Air quality and climate; General air quality will be m...


Modelling the Evaporation and Heat Balance of Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Rouse, Wayne R
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The objectives of this study are to measure the water balance and thermal regimes of Great Bear Lake and determine the linkages between the lake and the atmosphere above. Lake temperatures will be measured with self-recording thermistors on a rope with a...


Understanding Coastal Change along the Beaufort Sea Coast.
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steve
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: 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...
