RADARSAT Observations of River Ice and Flood Patterns in the Mackenzie River Delta
Principal Investigator: van der Sanden, Josephus J
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009
Summary: The project investigates and develops the potential of Canada’s RADARSAT satellites as a tool for the collection of information on (change in) river ice conditions and, during spring breakup, flood conditions in the Mackenzie Delta. During the upcoming year (2012), the research will focus on the application of RADARSAT images in support of the mapping of winter ice cover characteristics, e.g. ice ...

Evolution of the snowpack and snowmelt chemistry in the boreal forest and tundra ecosystem
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This research project has two primary scientific goals which include: 1) Relating ground truthed snowpack data to passive microwave data obtained from satellites through the winter months. This will assist in formulating a empirical relationship between the two datasets which is necessary to improve satellite monitoring of snow water equivalent. 2) Determining the relative importance of snowmel...

Understanding and prediction of permafrost thaw impacts on northern water resources
Principal Investigator: Quinton, William L.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2001
Summary: The long-term goal of this research project is to develop a suite of models for predicting the response of discontinuous permafrost in the Hay River Lowland to climate warming and human disturbance from oil and gas exploration, and the consequent change in landcover and river flow regime. This will be achieved by meeting the following short-term objectives: 1) map the spatial distribution of perma...
