Marine Arctic Ecosystem Study (MARES)
Principal Investigator: Wiese, Francis
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017 2016
Summary: BOEM issued a request that Stantec Inc. plan and execute a program during the 2016 field season to accomplish t the following objectives: 1) to collect physical, biological and chemical observations in the Eastern Beaufort Sea from moored and moving platforms; 2) to describe and analyze physical, biological and chemical observations acquired from the moving platforms; and, 3) to simultaneousl...


Assessment of the Western Arctic Boundary Current
Principal Investigator: Pickart, Robert S.
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2013 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The main objective is to characterize the western Arctic Boundary current (which flows at the edge of the shelf), in order to understand its role in dictating shelf-basin exchange of water and materials and how it impacts the ecosystem of the region, including the occurrence of marine mammals. This project is a collaboration between US and Canadian scientists. The research team are using a comb...


Identification of hybrid copepods between C. finmarchicus and C. glacialis
Principal Investigator: Maps, Frederic FM
Licenced Year(s): 2018
Summary: Project aims to identify hybrid between C. finmarchicus and C. glacialis and to estimate the geographical distribution of the hybrids. Sample will be collected from a ring net, mesh size 200 micrometer (µm). The net will be deployed from the back of the boat. It will be towed vertically at a speed of 30 m/min. The samples collected will be sieve through 200 µm stainless steel mesh to separate w...


Beaufort Sea Coastal and Nearshore Geoscience Research 2018
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licenced Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: Similar to 2017, the primary objective 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. This research has 3 targeted objectives: 1) to gain a better understanding of coastal permafrost; 2) to provide an update...


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 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...


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...
