Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Merzouk, Anissa
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The 2017 field program constitutes a subset of activities of the ArcticNet’s marine-based research program that has been conducted in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (IRS) within the framework of Scientific Research Licenses awarded for 2009-2013, for 2014-2015 and for 2016-2017. Planned activities will focus on the recovery and deployment of oceanographic moorings as part of ArcticNet’s Long...

2017 Baseline monitoring of marine productivity and oceanography spanning the Northwest Passage using ships of opportunity
Principal Investigator: Fisher, Jonathan AD
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The first objective is to collect, analyze and report the findings from station-based and continuous plankton sampling and data on depth, temperature and salinity in the upper water column throughout Canada’s Northwest Passage. As a contribution to marine climate change research, this program will provide northern communities with the first regional-scale view of marine productivity—thereby provid...

Canada-Korea-USA Beaufort Sea Geoscience Research Program: 2017 Activities
Principal Investigator: Jin, Young K
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2014 2013
Summary: The agencies involved are undertaking this research to acquire geoscience knowledge about the outer shelf of the Beaufort Sea with intent to address knowledge gaps related to thawing of subsea permafrost and gas hydrates. The research will be made publicly available to northern communities, regulators, the scientific community and industry through the release of scientific papers, maps and reports...

Under The Pole - Innovative Underwater Exploration
Principal Investigator: Bihan-Poudec, Anne-Claire
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: This survey aims at discovering bioluminescent and biofluorescent species in Polar Regions (namely the Arctic), assessing and understanding the potential functions of the phenomena. Marcel Koken and his team hope to discover bioluminescent or biofluorescent species in the Arctic mesophotic zone. As the mission consists of an exploration of an under-studied part of the ocean, the scientific team...

Beaufort Sea Coastal and Nearshore Geoscience Research 2017
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The objective of this project is to provide the means to improve the knowledge of physical conditions in the Arctic coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations and local residents understand mitigate and reduce the impacts of climate driven changes. Field surveys will be undertaken in consultation with Hunters and Trappers Committees (HTCs) in order to ensure the timing of ...

Beaufort Marine Hazards / Integrated Beaufort Observatory
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The strategic objective of this expedition is continued long-term monitoring of Canadian Beaufort Sea. The specific objectives are: 1) to recover, service and re-deploy oceanographic moorings carrying instruments that measure ice thickness and ridging, storm waves, sea level, ocean current, temperature and salinity, mammal vocalization, underwater sound and plankton; and, 2)to complete oceanogr...

Marine Arctic Ecosystem Study (MARES)
Principal Investigator: Wiese, Francis
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management issued a request that Stantec Inc. plan and execute a program during the 2016 field season to accomplish t the following objectives: •Collect physical, biological and chemical observations in the Eastern Beaufort Sea from moored and moving platforms; •Describe and analyze physical, biological and chemical observations acquired from the moving platforms; and...

Beaufort Sea Coastal Geoscience Research
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The primary objective of this research continues to be driven towards the safe and sustainable industrial and community development of the Beaufort Sea coastal nearshore region. The research provides the means to improve knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and reduce the impacts of natural...

Assessing the impact of small, Canadian Arctic river flows to the freshwater budget of the Canadian Archipelago
Principal Investigator: Alkire, Matthew B
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014
Summary: There are two primary goals of this project: 1) to determine whether relatively small Canadian Arctic rivers significantly contribute to the total volume of freshwater that drains through Davis Strait; and, 2) to determine if they are chemically distinct from larger North American rivers such as the Mackenzie and Yukon Rivers. To achieve these goals the research team propose to collect water sampl...

Addendum to ArcticNet licence # 15213
Principal Investigator: Levesque, Keith R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The ArcticNet marine-based research program is carried out from the Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen. The multi-year sampling program is developed around 3 main research components: 1) a meteorology, ocean & sea ice component; 2) a marine resources and environment component; and 3) a geology/bathymetry component. 1) Meteorology, ocean & sea ice component The general objective of thi...
