ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...

Environmental Change in the western Canadian Arctic Islands
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: Geological mapping and sampling, radiocarbon dating, and cosmogenic dating techniques will be used to reconstruct sea level change and glacier dynamics for Prince Patrick, Eglinton, and Melville islands since the last glaciation. In order to better understand possible future climatic conditions, it is important to obtain palaeoenvironmental data from these regions. The broad objective is to ob...

Hazards, Sea-level Rise, and Climate Change Impacts on Arctic Coasts
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to; 1) monitor coastal stability and the processes which affect it (winds, waves, sea ice, etc); 2) map coastal features, sediment properties, and ice conditions in the nearshore regions of the Mackenzie Delta an...

A seasonal sea ice monitoring and modelling site
Principal Investigator: Ledrew, Ellsworth
Licenced Year(s): 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The primary objective of the research is to characterize the physical processes of the interaction between sea ice, the ocean and the atmosphere. Monitoring of this interaction is necessary to understanding the impacts of a carbon dioxide (CO2) warming of arctic regions. The researchers will continue to collect data for this long-term study....

Coastal Geology of Northern Richards Island, Canadian Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Forbes, D.L.
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: Geophysical surveys will be carried out from a 40-foot vessel and from 16-foot rubber boats to deploy current meters at two sites in water depths approximately 2 meters, to collect beach, cliff and seabed sediment samples and to survey beach and cliff morphology using theodolites and surveyors instruments....
