Principal Investigator:Jin, Young Keun Licenced Year(s):
The agencies involved are undertaking this research to acquire geoscience knowledge about the outer shelf of the Beaufort Sea with intent to address knowledge gaps related to thawing of subsea permafrost and gas hydrates.
The Program activities include:
-Vessel mobilization and demobilization Multi-channel 2D seismic data acquisition Oceanographic and bathymetric data collection Sub-bottom prof...
Principal Investigator:Rice, Shawn L Licenced Year(s):
This licence was issued for the scientific research licence application number 782.
The objective of GXT’s research is to gather data to identify, model and remove Flex Waves (acoustic waves that becomes trapped in the ice) from the records. Data will be gathered using geophones developed by GXT and new methods of recording and interpreting the data.
The project will involve setting out line...
Principal Investigator:Millman, Peter M Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this project is to identify geophysical anomolies that will warrant additions to exploration activity (seismic surveys).
Three helicopters will be required for this project. Two Hughes 500’s will be used as longline helicopters to collect gravity data. The Hughes 500 is ideal for this longline operation as the helicopter is small and maneuverable. The third support helicopte...
Principal Investigator:Snyder, David B Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this ongoing study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0-300 km from sites in the Lac de Gras region. The researchers seek methods to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make diamond exploration more efficient and low impact. This research will lead to improved mineral exploration strategies, improved estimates of d...
Principal Investigator:Gyselman, Eric Licenced Year(s):
The development of oil and gas in the Mackenzie Delta and Mackenzie Valley will require additional seismic surveying to refine the location and extent of reserves. One method that has been proposed is the use of airgun arrays towed behind survey ships in...
Principal Investigator:Rosindell, Keith Licenced Year(s):
A test program has been designed in response to National Energy Board, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, and Resources, Wildlife and Economic Development requests to collect information on seismic airgun acoustics within the Mackenzie River and on asso...
Principal Investigator:Newyar, Chuck Licenced Year(s):
The study is to obtain specific environmental information to be used in the preparation of an environmental impact assessment for a land use permit application for a winter 2D seismic program spanning the Gwich'in and Sahtu Settlement Areas. Researchers...
Principal Investigator:Dallimore, Scott R Licenced Year(s):19941993199319921992
The researcher and team will conduct several drilling, electrical, radar and seismic surveys to gain a better understanding of the geology and technical properties of ice bearing permafrost....
Principal Investigator:Forsyth, D.A. Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will study rocks making up the top 40 km of the earth on the polar margin northeast of Ellef Ringnes Island. The seismic refraction survey will measure the speed of sound waves through the rocks....
