Investigation of Ground Ice Development in Sediments of the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licenced Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: 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...


Permafrost Studies: Western Arctic Coast
Principal Investigator: Mackay, J.R.
Licenced Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1989
Summary: 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....


Mesoscale Ice Deformation in the Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Topham, David
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: 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....


1. Permafrost and Ground Ice of the Expedition Fiord Area; 2. An investigation of the Origin and Nature of Massive Ground Ice on the Fosheim Peninsula
Principal Investigator: Pollard, W.H.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: 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...


Spring Field Camp: Geology, Climatology and Limnology
Principal Investigator: Maus, Lin
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: The project instructors will give students exposure to field methodologies involved in water, snow and ice environments....


Coastal Sedimentary Processes and Geotechnical Conditions, North Head Area, Richards Island, Canadian Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steven M
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: 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....


Late Quaternary Dynamics of the Labrador/Foxe Sectors of the Laurentide Ice Sheet and Ice Sheet/Ocean Interaction in the North Atlantic
Principal Investigator: Miller, Gifford H.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1991 1990 1989 1987
Summary: 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....


Ice Thickness Topography Study - Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licenced Year(s): 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: 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....

Summary: To conduct ice studies....


Licence #2544
Principal Investigator: Muller, Fritz
Licenced Year(s): 1980
Summary: To continue the long-term ice, glacial, hydrologic and climatic studies associated with the North Water Project....
