Polar Airborne Measurements and Arctic Regional Climate Model Simulation Project (PAMARCMIP)
Principal Investigator: Herber, Andreas
Licenced Year(s): 2017
Summary: The observational platform will be a single aircraft, the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) POLAR 5, a modified DC-3 aircraft. Objectives of this project are to: 1. determine the actual state of the sea ice thickness distribution in the western Arctic and what are trends of the Sea Ice thinning; 2. characterize the actual sea ice thickness distribution and identify trends in the sea ice thickne...

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...

Ice Island Drift Tracking
Principal Investigator: Mueller, Derek
Licenced Year(s): 2010
Summary: The Canadian Ice Service is currently exploring the use of satellite imagery to identify and track ice islands. To fully evaluate these techniques, it is important to have independent confirmation of where the ice islands are drifting. By deploying several tracking beacons on the surface of ice islands we can monitor where some of the dozens of ice islands are in real time. Our results will als...

Twin Otter Aerial Surveys of Sea Ice During Spring Melt
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: The objective of the research is to produce estimations of the reduction in sea ice in the ISR. Eight aerial surveys are planned for approximately May 1, 14, 31, June 14, 28, July 5 and 15 (weather and aircraft availability dependent). Each survey will b...

Coastal Hazards, Relative Sea-level Change, and Climate Impacts on Northern Coasts and Seaways
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The western Canadian Arctic coast is one of the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and among the most vulnerable to climate change. The causes of this vulnerability have been studied over the past decade. This project involves monitoring coast...

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...

Licence #4028
Principal Investigator: Jeffries, Martin O.
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To carry out a study of the structure, behaviour and origin of the Ward Hunt Ice Shelf. To carry out a snowmobile ground truth survey of the landfast sea ice between the mouth of Nansen Sound and Clements Markham Inlet. Ice cores will be taken, aerial photography and radar flights will be used....
