Principal Investigator:Lantz, Trevor C. Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of this research project are:
1) To use remote sensing to document the rate and extent of landscape change on Banks Island;
2) To examine the effects of tundra disturbances using detailed field investigations; and
3) Use participatory mapping and interviews to document Inuvialuit Knowledge of Landscape Change on Banks Island.
In this project the research team are using remot...

The proposed European Space Agency Earth Explorer 7 CoReH20 satellite mission has the primary objective of retrieving snow water equivalent (SWE) over land at a high spatial resolution (200-500 metres) from X- and Ku-band Synthetic Aperture Radar measurements. This would make available high resolution, satellite derived SWE, for monitoring and modeling applications. To-date, airborne measurements ...

The aim of the study of mass movements in the Richardson Mountains is to understand the processes of erosion related to climate changes. The site to be studied is located south of Little Fish Creek. The landscape looks like bench forms which are named Cryoplanation terrasses. This site was visited last year for 2-3 hours. Their formation are not really understood but we suspect that the melting of...
Principal Investigator:Goth, David Licenced Year(s):
1) To collect data on seasonal snow depths, densities and temperatures, 2) To collect snow samples for pollen measurement, 3) To make observations on the presence of erratics and weathering on exposed rocks, 4) To compile a daily records of precipitation, temperature, cloud ...
