Wind Energy Monitoring at High Point
Principal Investigator: Dares, Matthew J
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to continue to measure the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point (approximately 6 km northeast of the Inuvik airport). This is part of an alternative energy study for the Inuvik area. Two full years of wind measurements and an economic analysis will be necessary to confirm the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point site. The study ...


Wind Energy Monitoring at Snare Hill
Principal Investigator: Dares, Matthew J
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to continue to measure the wind energy potential at CN Hill (approximately 130 km from Yellowknife) until the site is next serviced and the equipment removed. This is part of an alternative energy study for the Yellowknife area. Wind data will be collected using instruments that measure wind speed, direction, and temperature. Sensors are already in...


GNWT High Point Wind Project - geotechnical investigations
Principal Investigator: Sullivan, Grant
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: Geotechnical investigations are proposed to identify the depth of bedrock and other materials underlying the permafrost onsite. The results of the geotechnical investigations will be used to determine the access route, the project location, and the turbine installation technique. This activity will include drilling of boreholes and collection of samples for testing. Thirteen boreholes are plann...


Investigating the relationship between snow microstructure and airborne synthetic aperature radar measurements of tundra snow to improve environmental prediction capabilities in polar regions
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: New high resolution Ku- and Ka-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) measurements are being proposed to measure tundra snow water equivalent (SWE) from future space-borne sensors, however further work is necessary to test the mission concept using airborne instruments that replicate the proposed satellite sensors. During the winter of 2012-2013 a research campaign at the Trail Valley Creek study sit...


Predicting the Future(s) of Renewable Energy in Canada's Arctic: MEOPAR Year of Polar Prediction Project
Principal Investigator: Monahan, Adam
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1. Study how wind power and solar irradiance in the north will change in the future; 2. Working with GNWT and Power Corp, use an instrumented tower to understand the relationship between wind and solar power with larger-scale weather variations and to analyze problems such as mechanical stresses and ice loading; 3. Provide input to refine near-surface proc...


Comparing the snow depths and densities of different habitats in the Beaufort Delta region
Principal Investigator: Kasook, Davonna C
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objective is to compare differences in snow depth, density and morphology of a heavily forested site and a tundra site. The Principal Investigator (PI) will study the effect landscape (forest vs. tundra) has on seasonal snow pack evolution and physical properties (density, temperature, snow grain morphology, and stratigraphy) of the snowpack. These results will be compared to historical data (...


Wind Energy Monitoring at Yellowknife (2015-2017)
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to measure the wind energy potential at CN Hill (approximately 130 km from Yellowknife) for two years. This is part of an alternative energy study for the Yellowknife area. Wind data will be collected using instruments that measure wind speed, direction, and temperature. At CN Hill, the sensors will be installed on an existing Northwestel Tower. Tw...


Delivery System For Pre-Engineered Manufactured Self-Sustaining (PEMaSS) Housing To Remote Regions
Principal Investigator: Thirunavukarasu, Asok
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The objective of this research is to identify current state of housing in Yellowknife. This field research should give insights on window-wall ratio, window type, typical R-values, typical construction assemblies, mechanical systems used and delivery process for housing. This will help benchmark the current energy and future performance of housing in the region. As well, the objective of this fiel...


Tarsiut Caissons - Removal and Remediation Plan
Principal Investigator: Marshall, John J
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this project at Thetis Bay is to ensure there is no unforeseen debris in the water around the caissons prior to moving. The objective at Tuktoyaktuk is to see if the caissons could be moved close enough to shore to offer a benefit to mitigate shore erosion. One small bathymetry vessel would be used in the program and one large Northern Transportation Company (NTCL) mainline tu...


Whati Transmission Line Engineering and Environmental Study
Principal Investigator: Lennie-Misgeld, Janpeter
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objectives of the study are as follows: - Perform limited geotechnical analysis to confirm assumptions on foundation type and location and routing; - Identify any archeological or cultural resources that may be impacted by the transmission line; - Conduct environmental field work e.g. wildlife sightings and documentation, plant samples, caribou migration trails; and - Use the information...
