In the second year of a 4-5 year project, the researchers will continue to collect water depth and gravity measurements in the Dease Strait and Coronatio Gulf. Helicopters will land at pre-determined sites on the ice to collect the data. Another helicopter will collect similar data but using an airborne electromagnetic technique. The airborne technique involves towing a device (9 metres long) u...
Principal Investigator:Vosburgh, Jim A. Licenced Year(s):
A aerial survey of Icebreaker Channel and the surrounding waters will be conducted in order to collect measurements that will be useful in determining a safe shipping zone. A bathymetry will be used to take measurements of water depth. This device is mounted to an aircraft; this aircraft then flies over the areas of interest to collect water depth information. This type of data collection has b...

Upon arrival in Dolphin and Union Strait, the surveyors will leave the mothership on smaller vessels in order to measure the depths of water in the Strait and determine the position of the shoreline and other geographical features. These measurements will be used to construct nautical charts or maps of the area. Similar activities will be conducted in the Coronation Gulf and Ice Breaker Channel ...

In Sachs Harbour, the researchers will continue to study whether underwater shipping noise interferes with beluga communication. They will record whale calls and measure their source decibel levels in relation to normal background noise and underwater vessel noise. ship noise....

Principal Investigator:Stirling, Ian Licenced Year(s):
Use sub-ice recording to study distribution of overwintering populations of seals in relation to plynyas, sea ice conditions, patterns of freeze-up, distribution of ringed seal pupping areas, distribution of polar bears and proposed winter shipping lanes....
Principal Investigator:Ward, John Licenced Year(s):
Aboard the ice-breaker "Kigoriak" experiments will be conducted on the levels and types of noise produced by the ship as it participates in the normal operational program. Very small explosives charges will be used (detonator caps) as part of the work....
