Melville Island South Ice Cap Mass Balance & Snow Pollution
Principal Investigator: Burgess, David O
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: By measuring the changing volume of the ice cap and maintaining an Automatic weather station the research team is able to tell how much the climate is changing. The snow sampling tells how clean the snow and air above it is and whether or not it is changing. While at the Melville ice cap, the team lives in a small hut by the side of the ice cap constructed last year. There is an automatic weath...


Mass Balance of Arctic Glaciers and Arctic Pollution
Principal Investigator: Koerner, Roy M
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: The objectives of this ongoing research project are: (a) to monitor climate change by measuring the changing volume of the ice cap and maintaining an automatic weather station, and (b) to monitor air and snow pollution by sampling snow and sending it to be analyzed. Based out of the Polar Continental Shelf Project in Resolute Bay, NU, two personnel will fly by Twin Otter to the ice cap, and liv...


Ice Core Analysis and Glacier Mass Balance
Principal Investigator: Koerner, Roy M
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1992 1991
Summary: The researchers will measure the snow mass at fixed locations on each of four ice caps. This will be compared to similar measures taken last year. Ice and snow samples will also be collected for later analysis for pollutants. Ice cores will be drilled from the Penny Penny Ice Cap at several locations....


Contaminant deposition measurements in precipitation in the NWT
Principal Investigator: Gregor, Dennis J.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: There is only limited information on contaminant trends in arctic ecosystems. This long-term study is examining the amounts of contaminants present in arctic ice caps. By taking core samples from ice caps, the researchers are able to measure the levels of contaminants that have been deposited by precipitation over many years. This study will also improve our understanding of the levels of conta...


Monitoring of the Penny Ice Cap, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Weber, J.R.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: Changes in the size of ice caps are excellent indicators of changes in climate. Changes in ice cap size are related to changes in sea level. In this final year of study, we will complete our measurements of the Penny Ice Cap. These measurements, collected in 1962, 1965 and 1992, are taken at the same location each time in order that comparisons can be made over the years. Differences in these ...


Mesoscale Climates and Paleoclimates of the Baffin Island Region
Principal Investigator: Jacobs, John D.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The Researchers will set up an automatic climate station on Penny Ice Cap. They will service the climate station erected on Barnes Ice Cap in 1990. Amadjuak Lake and the NW margin of the Barnes ice cap will also be visited to service automatic stations installed there in previous years....


Ice-rock-water interactions on southwestern Bylot Island
Principal Investigator: Hicock, Stephen R.
Licenced Year(s): 1992
Summary: The research will involve the study of the interplay (past and present) between glaciers, permafrost, meltwater and seawater on the southwestern side of the Bylot Island ice cap....

Summary: A geodetic survey of ice movements on the Barnes Ice Cap and an experiment to measure strain rates over very short time periods....


Licence #1826
Principal Investigator: Hooke, R. Leb.
Licenced Year(s): 1975
Summary: Glaciological Studies of the Barnes Ice Cap....
