Baseline monitoring of marine productivity and oceanography spanning the Northwest Passage using ships of opportunity
Principal Investigator: Fisher, Jonathan AD
Licenced Year(s): 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 contributor to marine climate change research, this program will provide northern communities with the first regional-scale view of marine productivity—thereby providi...


Marine Arctic Ecosystem Study (MARES)
Principal Investigator: Wiese, Francis
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management issued a request for a program during the 2016 field season to accomplish 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 • Gather water and sediment s...


Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Levesque, Keith R
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. The knowledge generated from this multi- year program is integrated into regional impact studie...


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...


Beaufort Marine Hazards / Integrated Beaufort Observatory
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licenced Year(s): 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 visit oceanogra...


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...


Canada-Korea-USA Beaufort Sea Geoscience Research Program: 2014 Activities
Principal Investigator: Jin, Young Keun
Licenced Year(s): 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 Program activities include: -Vessel mobilization and demobilization Multi-channel 2D seismic data acquisition Oceanographic and bathymetric data collection Sub-bottom prof...


Canadian Ranger Ocean Watch
Principal Investigator: Williams, Bill
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The projects main objectives are twofold; first, to work with community members (initially the rangers, but not limited to this group) to train them in the gathering of oceanographic data, to learn with them what is of interest in their use of the ocean environment, and to work with them in collecting it as well as sending the instruments out with Ranger Patrols for independent data collection. Se...


University of Washington Marginal Ice Zone
Principal Investigator: Lee, Craig
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: continue observations of the Arctic Ocean environment; understand the physical environment and processes; and develop integrated air–ice–ocean–wave models for improved prediction. The University of Washington is conducting marine scientific research to study the Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) in the Beaufort Sea approximately 200 nautical miles west of S...
