This work is part of a larger national activity that provides the framework for an updated Canadian Gravity Standardization Network (CGSN) and will ensure that the NWT maintains a consistent gravity reference datum common with Canada. The 2009 AG field campaign will focus primarily on Northern Canada and includes measurements at 4 gravity sites within municipalities of the NWT. In terms of possibl...

In the second year of a 4-5 year project, the researchers will continue to collect water depth and gravity measurements in the Dease Strait and Coronatio Gulf. Helicopters will land at pre-determined sites on the ice to collect the data. Another helicopter will collect similar data but using an airborne electromagnetic technique. The airborne technique involves towing a device (9 metres long) u...

This survey will take place from a ship travelling through the Hudson Strait and Ungava Bay region. The researchers will collect information on the history and characteristics of the seabed. Some samples of sediments on the seafloor will be taken for further analyses. Transfer of a few of the ship's crew may take place at Cape Dorset but all other activities will take place in locations remote ...

In 1962 a long-term project to monitor the elevation change of the Penny Ice Cap, Baffin Island was initiated. The growth or shrinkage of an ice cap is an indicator of climate change. Change in elevation is measured by the change of the force of gravity at a particular point on the top of the ice cap. As the ice cap grows the force of gravity decreases because gravity decreases with altitude. Grav...

Massive ice is found in exposure in some sections of the Fosheim Peninsula. The exact origin, distribution and characteristics of these ice bodies are largely unknown. Geophysical surveys will be conducted and ice and sediment samples will be taken and analyzed....

The Researcher and his team will carry out a survey which involves landing on the ice at 2 kilometre intervals for water depth measurement and every 6 kilometres for a gravity reading. The depth measurements will be used to show more data on navigation charts and the gravity readings will be added to the gravity data base....
