UpTempO: Measuring the Upper Ocean Temperature of the Arctic Ocean
Principal Investigator: Steele, Michael
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2011 2010
Summary: The central logistics hypothesis is that a crucial component of an Arctic Observing Network is ocean thermistor string buoys that are capable of measuring the local, atmospherically warmed upper 60 m of the Arctic Ocean. The focus is on the increasingly open seas of the Canadian and eastern Eurasian Basins. The central scientific hypothesis that provides motivation for this proposal is that the...

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...

Ice Thickness Topography Study - Beaufort Sea.
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licenced Year(s): 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The ice measurements are made by untended instruments operating beneath the sea throughout the year. The instruments to be retrieved in March 1994 were positioned in April 1993 and will be recovered by aircraft. The sonars will be re-deployed at the same locations to continue observations for another year. The survey of water properties by a lowered probe to 1500 m depth of the seafloor will be c...

Influence of Stream Discharge on the Distribution of Sea Ice with Climatic Implications
Principal Investigator: Dean, Ken
Licenced Year(s): 1991 1990
Summary: Satellite imagery, hydrologic data and field measurements will be used to develop a computer model of the thawing of sea ice and freezing of water in this area. The investigators will drill a hole through the ice and measure water temperature, salinity and turbidity....

Beaufort Sea Ice Motion Programme - Wintertime Hydrography
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licenced Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: To obtain better understanding of the role which wintertime freezing over the Mackenzie shelf of the Beaufort Sea plays in maintaining the peculiar cold haocline of the Arctic Ocean. Measurements will also show light on the regional ice budget, and on the recycling of nutrients to the surface layer by the wintertime haline circulation. Field study involves the measurement of the temperature, sal...

Licence #2078
Principal Investigator: T.W. Fiennes, Sir Ranulph
Licenced Year(s): 1977
Summary: Studies on radio propogation, specifically on the skipping of radio beams: measurement of ice thickness, water salinity and water temperature at intervals of about 50 miles. Measurement of the concentration of ice nuclei in the atmosphere and ornithological studies....
