Remote Sensing of Arctic Vegetation Biochemistry
Principal Investigator: Kennedy, Blair E
Licenced Year(s): 2014 2013
Summary: The objectives of the research are: (1) measure the spectral properties (i.e. how light is absorbed and reflected) and biochemical constituents (e.g. chlorophyll, water, nitrogen, carbon) of arctic vegetation at the ground-level in various vegetation communities across the Western Arctic (e.g. low-arctic to high-arctic); (2) investigate the potential of using satellite based multi-angular imaging ...

O-buoy measurements of ozone, carbon dioxide and bromine oxide over frozen surface of Hudson Bay and Arctic Ocean
Principal Investigator: Bottenheim, Jan W
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The goal of this project is to take part in establishment of a long-term observation network to measure concentrations of two important greenhouse gases (ozone and carbon dioxide) as well as bromine oxide. Bromine oxide is a key chemical reagent determining the presence of ozone accompanied with full set of meteorological data and detailed geographic information across the Arctic Ocean and Hudson ...

Remote Sensing of Ocean Color in the High Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Cota, Glenn
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: Light leaving the ocean's surface can be detected remotely by satellite. With the proper conversion factors satellites can tell us the amount & growth of plant material in the oceans. Microscopic plants comprise the base of the marine food chain, serving as food for all animals. Because of their dark coloration plants absorb light & produce heat. We are studying what colors & how much light is abs...
