Baffin Bowhead Monitoring Station, Igalirtuuq.
Principal Investigator: Finley, K.J.
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The study will be conducted from the permanent station on Nipple Hill at Nuvuktiapik. Surveyor instruments will be used to document whale numbers and their feeding behavior in Aqvik and Kater Valleys. The research team will attach as many as four radio tags in order to learn more about the feeding behavior and depth that the whales are feeding at. The team will also photograph the whales and us...


Behavioural and Physiological Studies of Belgua Whales and Narwhal in the High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Smith, Thomas
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: This is an ongoing study since 1973 and has described the population size and behaviour of belugas. UHF tagged animals have outlined the migratory routes and seasonal movements of the whales. The researcher is now using newly designed tags which are linked by satellite to relay position, dive duration and depth and heart rate of the whales....


Abundance and Distribution of Bowhead Whales in Foxe Basin
Principal Investigator: Cosens, Sue
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: The researcher will make daily flights from Igloolik to look for bowheads. The researcher will estimate the relative abundance, assess stock status and describe the spring distribution and movements of the bowheads in Foxe Basin. The researcher will also locate a study site where a hydrophone array could be set up to count migrating bowheads in future years....


Fall Field Camp
Principal Investigator: Maus, Lin
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1991
Summary: First and Third Year Students enrolled in the Environmental Technology Program will participate in introductory field research training. This will include scientific collection techniques, and the development of collections available for public use and use in school....


Organic Contaminants in the Arctic Ecosystem: Utilizing the Ringed Seal (Phoca hispida) as a Biomonitor
Principal Investigator: Metcalfe, C.D.
Licenced Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Research will examine the variation of organochlorine contaminants (O.C.'s) in the arctic ringed seal species. Major trends in concentrations will be outlined on 4 distinct levels: 1) variation within individual seals 2) seasonal variation in one seal popultion 3) variation between seal popultaions from two distinct sites 4) long-term temporal variations at these two locations....


The Creation and Utilization of an Artifical Reef in the Churchill Region
Principal Investigator: Thornton, Sheila
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher will create an artifical reef in the Churchill region and develop an arctic ecosystem study site. She will create a species inventory which will involve benthic sampling using SCUBA gear. Species include benthic marine invertebrates, fish and pelagic invertebrates found in 0-20 metres of water....


Polar Ecology Field Research Course
Principal Investigator: Curtis, Mark A.
Licenced Year(s): 1992 1989
Summary: Dr. Mark Curtis and his team of 10 students from the University of Copenhagen will study molluscs, marine worms, and crustaceans living on the sea bottom and the parasites that live in arctic char and lake trout. The research is organized as part of a Cop...


Vocal Behavior and Sound Production in Bearded Seals
Principal Investigator: Smith, Thomas
Licenced Year(s): 1989
Summary: Dr. Thomas Smith and his will take underwater recordings of bearded seal sounds. He will collect data to describe and measure the vocal behavior of the seals underwater. He will also collect bearded seals for dissection and analysis of the seal larynx. Roger Memorana will be hired from Holman to work with Dr. Smith. Dr Smith has received a small grant from the Science Institute of the NWT to cover...


Trophic relationships and energetics of Arctic Cod ("Boreagadus saida") in high-arctic marine food chains
Principal Investigator: Hop, Haaken
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990 1988
Summary: To investigate feeding ecology of Arctic cod and the energy flow through Arctic cod from zooplankton to marine mammals and sea birds; to collect 100 live Arctic cod to transport to the Marine Sciences Research Laboratory at Memorial University, St. John's, Nfld., to conduct energetics experiments...
