The Research will continue to examine the hydrology of frost heave in the ideal environment of a lake-bottom. In addition some experimental trials of frost heave in equipment of various sizes will be conducted in winter time. Summer activities are planned in the outer Delta to examine the distribution of ice in the upper layers of permafrost and to investigate permafrost conditions beneath shallow...
Principal Investigator:Mackay, J.R. Licenced Year(s):19971996199519941993
Since 1951 the researcher has conducted field studies on permafrost along the Western Arctic Coast. The basic purpose is to better understand the origin of permafrost, the ice within the permafrost and the processes that help create it. Specific studies include pingos and ice wedges....
Principal Investigator:Topham, David Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and team will deploy an array to nine ARGOS drift buoys over the period of March to May. A small remote submersible equipped with upward looking sonar will be used in the operation....
Principal Investigator:Pollard, W.H. Licenced Year(s):19941992
This research involves the field investigation of natural exposures of massive ground ice and bodies of surface ice. Sites identified in previous field seasons will be visited and samples of ice, water and sediment will be taken for further analyses. The results of this research will help in the interpretation of climate change and the assessment of both natural and human induced terrain disturban...
Principal Investigator:Solomon, Steven M Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and his team will use a hand-operated auger to take sediment cores and temperature measurements. Cores will penetrate the seabed beneath the ice to a depth of 2-3 metres. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) will be used to investigate ground ice distribution and a current meter will be used to measure sub-ice currents along the edge of the bottom-fast ice....
Principal Investigator:Miller, Gifford H. Licenced Year(s):19941993
The Research teams will continue to gather information to understand past glacial activity and sea level change in the eastern Canadian Arctic. They will take core samples from selected lakes and will record environmental change preserved in the lake sediments....
Principal Investigator:Melling, Humfrey Licenced Year(s):19961995199419931992
Dr. Melling and his research team will continue to study ice in the Beaufort Sea. Sonar instruments will be deployed at two locations, will operate at 50-80m depth and be recovered in April, 1991. They will also survey seawater properties at selected sites offshore. This is the eighth year the seawater survey has been conducted in the Beaufort Sea in late winter....
