Principal Investigator:Barker, Anne Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this study are to:
1. Quantify formation, stability, timing and decay of rubble fields, effects of ice rubble on reducing ice loads and provide guidance on optimal rubble field extent;
2. Give guidance on safe access on rubble and/or the ability to clear rubble.
A variety of techniques will be used to profile the rubble. The non-intrusive methods include using an optical r...

The Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims to understand the biogeochemical and ecological consequences of sea ice variability on the Mackenzie Shelf (Beaufort Sea) and provide the infor...

The objectives of this research are to study the chemistry of the groundwaters that flow into the Little Fish River near the Cache Creek overwintering hole. The role of carbonate rocks is important as there is a lot of subsurface flow in this rock type. The presence of the aufeis (winter icing) on Cache Creek is a sign of groundwater flow, and is one of the reasons that this site was chosen. We...
Principal Investigator:Moorman, Brian J Licenced Year(s):
The researchers will conduct 2 types of surveys: (1) radar surveys will be conducted using a portable radar unit; and (2) small samples of ice from glaciers and moraines will be collected in order to conduct analysis which will determine the chemical make-up of the ice. This information will be used to determine characteristics about the glaciers as well as help in our understanding of the climat...

to determine the rate of ice growth and decay in major river channels; to obtain a long-term record of the speed at which ice grows, the maximum thickness of ice, and the date at which the ice is thickest; to investigate the rate at which ice thins before break-up...
