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...


Atmospheric Refraction Phenomena
Principal Investigator: Lehn, W.H.
Licenced Year(s): 1987
Summary: To study the optical refraction and image transmission in the lower layer of the atmosphere, in particular under conditions of temperature inversion. To improve the understanding of these processes, and to continue to search for remote sensing techniques that provide temperature profiles through optical measurements....


Licence #5020
Principal Investigator: Lehn, W.H.
Licenced Year(s): 1985
Summary: To further study meteorological optics by photographic recording of land forms and their refracted images over horizontal lines of sight; measurement of refraction and horizon shift by theodolite; local surveys of the photographed land forms and observation sites....


Licence #4081
Principal Investigator: Timoney, Kevin, P.
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: Field sampling coupled with air photo interpretation are used to describe vegetation zonation. Objectives include: a) a delimitation of the subarctic forest-tundra ecotone; b) geographic variation in the vegetation, sorts, species ranges, and width and position of the forest-tundra....


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....


Effects of fire on plants, animals and human land use
Principal Investigator: Wein, Ross
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To gather information on fire behaviour, the effects of fire on plants and animals, and the social implications of fire management. Satellite imagery processing, aerial photography and ground censusing will be used....


Licence #4015
Principal Investigator: Lehn, W.H.
Licenced Year(s): 1984
Summary: To investigate optical refraction in the lower layers of the atmosphere (anomalous refraction, such as the superior mirage and optical ducting). Photographic recording of land forms and their refracted images: measurement of refraction and horizon shift; some measurement of atmospheric temperatures in the lowest layers (10-15 meters); local surveys of the photographed land forms....
