Principal Investigator:Forbes, Donald L Licenced Year(s):2006
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...

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...
Principal Investigator:Forbes, Donald L Licenced Year(s):
Safe and sustainable hydrocarbon development and potential impacts of climate change on coastal infrastructure and subsistence activities require improved knowledge and understanding of coastal and nearshore seabed properties, and coastal hazards such as...
Principal Investigator:Fortier, Louis Licenced Year(s):2004
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...
Principal Investigator:Evans, Kevin Licenced Year(s):
The physical oceanography of the Beaufort Sea work will involve the identification and review of existing physical oceanographic data, a summary of this information and the application of this information within the context of the assessment and protecti...

The Coastal Impacts project on the Beaufort Sea coast has two complementary objectives:
1. To improve our understanding of coastal processes;
2. To develop methods for prediction of coastal impacts of changing climate.
Field work will be performed in the modern Mackenzie Delta, along the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula coast, and at North Head if time permits. Collaborative field work in Ivva...
Principal Investigator:Hill, Philip R. Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will examine the rate of coastal change in the outer Mackenzie Delta region in order to understand the factors contributing to present delta formation and coastal erosion, and to understand how global climate warming may affect coastal change. Surveys on beaches, sand bars and delta lakes will be conducted....
Principal Investigator:Hequette, Arnaud Licenced Year(s):19931992
The Researcher and team will conduct cliff and beach surveys to measure change in the shoreline position. They will also survey shallow lagoon and nearshore zones in the area of Drift Point and Atkinson Point. Seafloor sediment samples will be collected using a grap sampler and a portable piston corer....
Principal Investigator:Dallimore, S.R. Licenced Year(s):1990
Mr. Dallimore and his team intend to re-visit instrumented test-sites, complete mapping of surficial materials and to collect limited soil samples for analyses....
