Principal Investigator:Melling, Humfrey Licenced Year(s):1996
The researchers will retrieve untended sonar instruments operating beneath the sea that were positioned in April 1994. After servicing, these instruments will be re-deployed at the same locations to continue the observations for another year. A survey of water water properties will be collected at about 20 sites in the offshore and observations made using a lowered probe to 1500 m depth or to t...
Principal Investigator:Melling, Humfrey Licenced Year(s):
To deploy 11 drifting buoys to improve description of oceanic flow variations on scales of 5-50 km over the Mackenzie shelf of the southern Beaufort Sea; to investigate the relationship between such variations, seafloor topography and shelf water baroclinicity; to estimate the uncertainty which such fluctuations introduce into deterministic models of pack-ice drift...
Principal Investigator:Keliher, t.E. Licenced Year(s):
(a) Radio echo sounding of the glaciers and larger icebergs (Smith Bay to Cape Herschel); (b) Survey of present iceberg production rates; (c) Drift studies on icebergs using satellite locator buoys....
