Water Ecosystem Monitoring using Earth Observations
Principal Investigator: Chamberland, Joseph
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The research project Water Ecosystems Monitoring using Earth Observation aims to define an Earth Observation (EO) driven monitoring program to provide information towards monitoring environmental indicators of northern ecosystem health. Once the project is done information on water indicators including water temperature, suspended sediment concentrations, water levels, and ice quality and will be ...


Satellite Monitoring for Assessing Resource Developmentā€™s Impact on Bathurst Caribou (SMART)
Principal Investigator: Chen, Wenjun
Licenced Year(s): 2015
Summary: We have two specific objectives over the next three years: 1) to improve the understanding of the mechanisms responsible for the zone of influence (ZOI) from resource development disturbed areas in the Bathurst caribou habitat, and their relationships with caribou habitat use and productivity, by integrating traditional knowledge, field surveys, and remote sensing technology; and, 2) to investig...


UpTempO: Measuring the Upper Ocean Temperature of the Arctic Ocean
Principal Investigator: Steele, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2011 2010
Summary: The goal for this research project is to measure the upper ocean warming (0 - 60 m layer) that occurs as sea ice retreats in the Arctic Ocean during summer, and also the fall cooling. The surface layer (0-50 m) of the Arctic Ocean has in recent years experienced unprecedented summertime warming. The causes are still under investigation, but are undoubtedly related to extreme summer sea ice retreat...


Northern Phase 1 Environmental Assessment Program - Remote Sensing Pilot Project
Principal Investigator: Neufeld, Lori
Licenced Year(s): 2009
Summary: WorleyParsons, on behalf of Imperial Oil, is planning to conduct a remote sensing pilot project through use of a fixed-wing aircraft to capture environmental information on approximately 100 former drilling sites, as well as some former staging areas, campsites, artificial islands in the Beaufort Sea and other facilities located in the Northwest Territories. The purpose of the project is to determ...


Assessing snowpack water equivalent distribution in the Exeter-Yamba-Daring Lake catchment, Coppermine River Basin, NWT for passive microwave algorithm development and stable isotope analysis
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The primary objectives of this research are: to improve our national snow water equivalent (SWE) monitoring capabilities by acquiring the necessary data to develop accurate satellite remotely sensed, passive microwave, estimates in the spatially expansive and persistently snow covered arctic tundra environment, and to understand and quantify the spatial and temporal contribution of snowmelt water...
