Airborne Observations in Support of NETCARE
Principal Investigator: Abbatt, Jon
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: The NETCARE observations will be covered the range from Longyearbyen, Svalbard (European Arctic) until Inuvik (NWT – Polar 6 aircraft only) and Barrow (Alaska – Polar 5 aircraft only). The observational platforms will be two aircraft: 1) the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) POLAR 5, a modified DC-3 aircraft; and 2) the AWI POLAR 6, also a modified DC-3 aircraft. The two platforms will be coordin...

Radar Observations in Support of the Mackenzie GEWEX Study (MAGS)
Principal Investigator: Haykin, Simon
Licenced Year(s): 1999 1998
Summary: A transportable radar system, called the IPIX radar, will be located on the Fort Simpson airport property and operated for 4 or 5 three week periods between August 1998 and August 1999. The system will be left on site but not operated outside these specific periods. This will be used to measure the precipitation and cloud properties within 150 km of the airport. These measurements will be used to...

Atmospheric transport of organic contaminants
Principal Investigator: Waite, Don
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: In this study, we will collect air, dust and rain samples on a weekly basis at five Canadian locations during the months of June and July, 1993. Three locations are in the NWT while two locations are in Saskatchewan. The samples will be analyzed in Regina and Edmonton for the presence of certain insecticides, herbicides and PCB's that are known to be transported in the atmosphere....

Current contaminant deposition measurements in precipitation throughout the NWT
Principal Investigator: Gregor, Dennis J.
Licenced Year(s): 1993
Summary: Contaminants are carried in the air to the arctic during the winter when large-scale wind movements bring these contaminants from industrialized locations in North America, Europe and Asia to the north. Snow can collect these compounds from the air and bring them to the ground where they can accumulate. Thus, it is important to study the amount of contaminants in snow to determine the types and ...

Licence #2509
Principal Investigator: Pratt, Robert
Licenced Year(s): 1979
Summary: To measure the quantity and type of submicroscopic particles in the air and to determine the acidity of rainwater. The study will also help to determine possible human influences on the climate....
