The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to measure the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point (approximately 6 km northeast of the Inuvik airport) for two years. This is part of an alternative energy study for the Inuvik area. Wind data will be collected using instruments on a wind tower that will be installed at the site. Two full years of wind measurements and an economic analy...

The objective of this research project is to measure solar irradiance levels in Jean Marie River and Ft. Providence, in order to support pre-feasibility studies on the use of solar energy in those communities.
During the summer the project engineer will travel to Jean Marie River and Fort Providence to start monitoring solar irradiance in the two communities. The monitoring units will likely be...

The proposed field research programs will allow the proponent to determine the technical and environmental feasibility and economic viability of a subsea natural gas pipeline from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to the Mackenzie Delta area of Canada. Five field research projects are proposed to provide information needed to make the necessary evaluations. The research is designed to: (1) Assess the feasibil...

The objective of this project is to conduct a feasibility study on the use of geographic inforamtion systems (GIS) as tools for long-term monitoring of the Reindeer herd in the Beaufort-delta region. This project will focus on research based in Inuvik using GIS equipment and library resources. Logistical requirements may potentially require travel to Richards Island, Atkinson Point and Husky La...

We plan to speak with hamlet leaders and others about the possibility of working together to organize a university-level course for about 20 students on Inuit culture and art which might be held in Igloolik at a mutually-agreeable time in the next year or two. The course would be jointly sponsored by Carleton University and DePaul University....

Three crews of two people each will be stationed at the commercial fishing camps to obtain biological and catch effort data from the fisherman. A supervisor will oversee the project in the field and set some experimental nets in the vicinity of the commercial nets at one of the camps. A minimum of 200 whitefish samples will be obtained from the fishermen's catch....
Principal Investigator:Chiperzak, Doug Licenced Year(s):
The potential of marine fisheries stocks in the Beaufort Sea to support commercial fisheries is unknown at present. I propose to develop the local expertise to conduct offshore winter fisheries for greenland halibut (turbot) using long-line techniques, and to assess the potential of any stocks present to support a commercial fishery. Data will be collected to assess stock characteristics pertine...

The Researchers will use ground penetrating radar to conduct surveys on the surface of the delta plains. The radar waves are similar to FM radio waves in their frequency. Measurements wll be taken every 1 - 2 meters in the sample area by placing fiberglass boards on the surface....
Principal Investigator:Cosens, Susan Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and team will apply new tag technology and DNA analysis to a study of site tenacity and industrial disturbance of bowhead whales. They will test the feasibility of using sonic tags to track bowheads underwater and will be testing sampling methods for collecting skin from live whales for DNA analysis....
