Upon arrival in Dolphin and Union Strait, the surveyors will leave the mothership on smaller vessels in order to measure the depths of water in the Strait and determine the position of the shoreline and other geographical features. These measurements will be used to construct nautical charts or maps of the area. Similar activities will be conducted in the Coronation Gulf and Ice Breaker Channel ...
Principal Investigator:Staple, Tamara Licenced Year(s):
The research in Nahanni National Park includes the setting up of programs to monitor water depth and vegetational changes along the river. Changes in water depth influence the ability of navigating the river, especially in areas of rapids, and has implications on the level of expertise required by visitors travelling the river. Monitoring vegetation along the river will provide information about...

1993 activities represent the first phase of a four-year project to collect water depth and gravity measurements as well as to determine a safe shipping route through the Coronation Gulf and Victoria Strait. Two helicopters will land at predetermined locations on the sea ice to take measurements. Another helicopter will collect water depth information using airborne electromagnetic techniques. ...
