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...

FIRE III: An Arctic Cloud Study
Principal Investigator: Isaac, George
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: Arctic clouds are dominant on average covering 40 to 60% of the skies over the Arctic ocean. They exert a large influence on the radiation balance in the Arctic, where climate change effects are predicted and observed to be largest in the northern hemisphere. The FIRE III field project will use in-situ measurements obtained using instrumental aircraft, in combination with concurrent satellite dta,...

An algorithm for estimating aerial snow water equivalent in the Northwest Territories using passive microwave data
Principal Investigator: Gan, Thian Yew
Licenced Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: Given the vast size of the N.W.T., it is very difficult to accurately measure the amount of water that is made available from snow (called snow water equivalents or SWE). A variety of agencies have collected data from climate stations and satellites and this data can be used to estimate SWE. This study will involve taking measurements of snow on the ground and comparing these measurements to th...

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...

An Evaluation of Satellite Data to Detect and Monitor Vegetation Responses to Climate Warming at Treeline
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Cheryl M.
Licenced Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher will continue to determine what density of trees is necessary for detection by the satellite sensors. To determine what are the densities of shrubs and herbs or dwarf shrubs and lichens that change the reflectance patterns from the understory. To determine if the thresholds in density will be sensitive enough to monitor vegetation responses to climate change in the forest to tundra ...

Principal Investigator: Hankinson, Flt. LT. K.W.
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1988
Summary: Multi-disciplinary research will be undertaken in botany, geology, micro meteorology, soil science, remote sensing, breeding biology of Arctic char and archaeological survey. These studies are a continuation of those begun in 1988....

Modelling Flooding Hydrology on the Mackenzie Delta with Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems
Principal Investigator: Boyes, Donald M.
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994 1990
Summary: The Researcher and team propose to provide a better understanding of the present fluvial regime in the area and a method of assessing the effects of uncontrollable influences such as global warming and controllable factores such as hydro-electric and pipeline development....

Studies of Arctic Shorebirds and their Habitats in the Foxe Basin, NWT
Principal Investigator: Morrison, R.I.G.
Licenced Year(s): 1990
Summary: This is a continuation of a project begun in 1986 to study year to year variation in breeding densities of shorebirds. The Researcher and team will determine which species of birds breed on the islands of the Foxe Basin, which habitats they use and how their numbers change from year to year. They are also interested in producing a map of the main wildlife habitats on the islands using satellite im...

Studies of Arctic Shorebirds and their Habitats in the Foxe Basin, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Morrison, R.I.G.
Licenced Year(s): 1990 1989
Summary: Dr. Morrison and his research team will gather information on the species of birds breeding on the islands of the Foxe Basin, which habitats they use and how their numbers vary from year to year. A map of the main wildlife habitats on the islands will also be made using satellite images....

A study of the tectonic history of the Arctic
Principal Investigator: Phillips, Stephen M.
Licenced Year(s): 1987
Summary: To continue the study of the detailed geological history of Caledonian Bay and the region near Schei Summit of central Ellesmere Island. Geological mapping will be carried out on an approx. scale of 1:50,000, using aereal photographs as a base. More detailed studies (on a meter scale) will be undertaken where structures and outcrop permit. Some rock samples will be collected for laboratory anal...
