Principal Investigator:Olson, John V. Licenced Year(s):
The Norman Wells Observatory has demonstrated to be a very good site to place a remote aurora monitoring observatory to support a scientific experiment called SPIRIT II. For this project, the researchers will continue to investigate the aurora's strength and position, magnetic disturbances etc. The observatory at Norman Wells fills a gap in the internationally collected and shared auroral data se...
Principal Investigator:Burden, Elliott Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher and associate will collect samples of shale and sandstone from cliffs. They will be taken to Memorial University to be analysed for their remnant magnetization. This research applies in regional correlation studies of marine and terrestrial strata and in site specific studies of the geologic development of this part of the Arctic....
Principal Investigator:Fyles, John G. Licenced Year(s):19921991
The Researcher and his team will investigate the Beaufort Formation. They will measure the sequence of layers of sand and clay visible on hillsides and cut-banks, and collect samples from selected layers for laboratory study of (1) the paleomagnetic character of the formation, (2) plants and insects in the sand, and (3) marine organisms in the clays....
Principal Investigator:Vincent, Jean-Serge Licenced Year(s):19921991
A camp will be set up on morthwestern Bands Island (Ballast Brook). Sections along rivers and the coast will be examined by the various researchers to determine the nature of the various sediments and their fossil content....
Principal Investigator:Rode, Andris Licenced Year(s):
to study human adaptation to prolonged hard work under extreme environmental conditions; to stimulate public interest in fitness and sport; to study geomagnetic and other physical phenomena; to develop closer scientific and cultural cooperation between Canada and the USSR...
Principal Investigator:Weber, Richard Licenced Year(s):1988
To complete a training session in order to test the operation of the equipment for magnetic operations under cold-weather conditions. During March-June 1988 the expedition will investigate the magnetic field across the Arctic Ocean where presently there is little data....
Principal Investigator:Wolfe, Allan Licenced Year(s):
To install a fluxgate magnetometer and 30MHz riometer to provide new information on hydromagnetic wave and particle precipitation phenomena occurring under varying interplanetary and geomagnetic conditions. This location is slected because it is in the "conjugate" area to the United States station at South Pole, Antarctica....
Principal Investigator:Oguti, Takasi Licenced Year(s):
Record and photograph aurora (northern lights), related natural electromagnetic waves and geomagnetic pulsations. Another research on Doppler shift of HF waves (receiving only) may be added....
Principal Investigator:Jackson, Charlotte Licenced Year(s):
To sample igneous rocks for a paleomagnetic investigation, and to study geological field-relations of the same rocks in order to determine their age and relation tO the development and deformation of the surrounding geological provinces....
