Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: The goals of this research are to examine: 1) measurements of water depths and lake depths for selected area of the Mackenzie Delta; 2) changes in lake flooding and historical lake boundaries in the Mackenzie Delta. Specific activities for this field season include the following: (1) Improved information on the detailed topography of the Mackenzie Delta floodplain and how delta water levels a...


Particle Dynamics on the Mackenzie shelf (CASES sub-project)
Principal Investigator: Walker, Tony R
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: The Beaufort Sea shelf is very shallow and the Mackenzie River, which sends freshwater, nutrients, and particles onto the shelf, may have a large influence on its productivity. The researchers would like to study the effects of the river in transporting particles to the shelf by measuring the types of particles, how fast they sink, and how easily they are stirred from the bottom. They would also ...


Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES)
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: Given the possibility of a sustained reduction of the ice cover of Arctic shelves in response to climate warming, the Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims at understanding the biogeoch...


Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES)
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002
Summary: Given the possibility of a sustained reduction of the ice cover of Arctic shelves in response to climate warming, the Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims at understanding the biogeoch...


PITSA (Pack Ice Thickness - Station A)
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: This project will establish a baseline climate-monitoring site in the perennial ice zone of the Canada Basin. Mooring carrying instruments to measure thickness of drifting perennial pack ice will be kept at Station A on the 3000-m isobath in the Canada B...


Late Quaternary History of the Richardson Mountains and the Melville Hills
Principal Investigator: Lamoureux, Scott F
Licenced Year(s): 2001
Summary: The research will require fieldwork in the Richardson Mountains between 27 April and 8 May, 2001. Research will involve the development of a high-resolution paleoenvironmental record based on lake sediments from up to six lakes in the Richardson Mountains and the Melville Hills in the NWT. Transportation in the field for the Dempster Highway study will be by snowmobile and snowshoes. If snow cov...


Understanding Coastal Change along the Beaufort Sea Coast.
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steve
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to map the coastline of the Canadian Beaufort Sea in terms of its sensitivity to coastal erosion and monitor changes in the coastline, and to collect information on the morphology of the coast and the sediments which compose it for use in developing and calibrating predictive models of coastal change. A helicopter video survey of the coastline will be con...


Ice Thickness Topography Study - Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licenced Year(s): 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The base for operations is the PCSP Base at Tuktoyaktuk. The ice measurements are made by untended instruments operating beneath the sea throughout the year. The instruments to be retrieved in March 1996 were positioned in April 1995. They will be recovered through the ice using aircraft-based logistics. The survey of water properties will be conducted at about 15 selected sites in the offshore...


Licence #2735
Principal Investigator: McCAnn, S.B.
Licenced Year(s): 1982
Summary: To continue a study of the interactions of tidal and sea ice processes and rates of transport of farge boulders on tidal flats....
