Landscape Change on Banks Island.
Principal Investigator: Lantz, Trevor C.
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: 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...


Airborne SAR and passive microwave measurements over snow covered tundra for CoReH20 retrieval validation and land surface model testing
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: 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 ...


Mass movements in the Aklavik Mountains and Water Quality in the Richardson Mountain Catchments
Principal Investigator: LAURIOL, Bernard
Licenced Year(s): 1998
Summary: 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...
