University of Washington Marginal Ice Zone
Principal Investigator: Lee, Craig
Licenced Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: continue observations of the Arctic Ocean environment; understand the physical environment and processes; and develop integrated air–ice–ocean–wave models for improved prediction. The University of Washington is conducting marine scientific research to study the Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) in the Beaufort Sea approximately 200 nautical miles west of S...


An Integrated Sea Ice Project for BREA: Detection, Motion, and RADARSAT Mapping of Extreme Ice Features in the Southern Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objective of this study is to provide information on the thickness distribution, movement, and characteristics of different types of sea ice within the Beaufort Sea Region. The focus will be on hummocked multi-year sea ice referred to as Extreme Ice Features (EIFs). These EIFs are poorly understood, and would be the most hazardous to any engineered structure in the southern Beaufort Sea (such ...


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...


1) Younger Dryas Climate Threshold Events; 2) Assessing Stability of Sea Ice Cover in the Northwest Passage
Principal Investigator: Hodgson, D.A.
Licenced Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Under instruction from Natural Resources Canada Climate change program, this project aims to: (1) examine Northwest Victoria Island for evidence of glacial and sea level changes associated with the Younger Dryas cooling period that affected the northern...
