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...


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...


A Seasonal Sea Ice Monitoring Site (SIMS)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The primary objective of the research is to characterize the physical processes of the ice/ocean/atmosphere interface and to develop the capability to measure the pertinent variables using remote sensing data. The operational monitoring which can be provided by satellite remote sensing, is a necessary prerequisite to understanding the impacts of CO2 induced warming of the ice covered regi...
