The objective of this research is to identify current state of housing in Yellowknife. This field research should give insights on window-wall ratio, window type, typical R-values, typical construction assemblies, mechanical systems used and delivery process for housing. This will help benchmark the current energy and future performance of housing in the region. As well, the objective of this fiel...
Principal Investigator:Trimble, Annika EV Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this research project is to measure solar irradiance levels in Jean Marie River and Ft. Providence, in order to support pre-feasibility studies on the use of solar energy in those communities.
During the summer the project engineer will travel to Jean Marie River and Fort Providence to start monitoring solar irradiance in the two communities. The monitoring units will likely be...
Principal Investigator:O'Neill, Norm T Licenced Year(s):
The objective of this research project is to measure the aerosol optical depth and sky radiance at Yellowknife using an automated, sun-tracking, CIMEL sunphotometer.
In this project, measurements of instruments in the network (called AEROCAN which is the Canadian sub-network of the world-wide NASA-led network called AERONET) are performed using a CIMEL sunphotometer / sky radiometer. This instr...

We plan to install magnetometers, instruments that passively measure the earth's magnetic field, at 4 sites during the summer of 1993. We will spend approx. 1 week at each site installing and testing equipment, and will then leave it in place for several years. We also plan to revisit the 4 communities of Pangnirtung, Cape Dorset, Coral Harbour and Repulse Bay to meet with established contacts an...

(1) Birds: in particular to study the migratory habits of Light-bellied Brent Geese from Ireland to the high Arctic. (2) Solar Radiation: to determine the efficiency of several solar energy collecting devices (a solar cooker, piece of polar bear pelt, and photo voltaic solar cells)....
Principal Investigator:Schaap, Don Licenced Year(s):
To conduct a multi year survey of present building techniques, building problems with recommendations for possible future building techniques. The study will include: 1) Feasibility of solar and wind power. 2) Community layouts 3) Building material inventory 4) Building maintenance...
