The ArcticNet marine-based research program is carried out from the Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen. The multi-year sampling program is developed around 3 main research components: 1) a meteorology, ocean & sea ice component; 2) a marine resources and environment component; and 3) a geology/bathymetry component.
1) Meteorology, ocean & sea ice component
The general objective of thi...

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...

The objective of the seabed mapping program is to conduct a regional survey of the Beaufort shelf over the next two years. Ice scouring processes, benthic habitats, abandoned artificial islands, pingo-like features, gas seeps, seafloor foundation conditions, subsea permafrost and coastal stability will be investigated.
The Coast Guard vessel CCGS Nahidik will be used as the research platform...

Shell Exploration and Production Company (Shell) is proposing to mobilize the Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU), Kulluk, from McKinley Bay, Northwest Territories to offshore Alaska, to initiate preparations for an offshore exploration drilling program to be carried out over the next several years. The Kulluk has been inactive and moored in McKinley Bay since 1993. Prior to that, the Kulluk had ...

Baseline studies in the Gahcho Kue (Kennady Lake) area, in conjunction with the DeBeers Gahcho Kue Diamond Mine Project, have been ongoing since 1998. AMEC Earth and Environmental has been contracted by DeBeers to conduct these studies. This year, independent of the Mackenzie Valley Environmental Impact Review Board's regulatory requirements*, two studies are planned to be conducted in the project...

Shell Canada Limited will be surveying the river bottom to see if it is practical to use a barge-mounted gas conditioning facility at the Niglintgak Gas Field in the Mackenzie Delta. The researchers will do a bathymetric survey to identify locations that are not wide enough and/or deep enough for barge passage. Bathymetry is the science of measuring water depths and showing the variations in dep...

The base for operations is the PCSP Base at Tuktoyaktuk. The ice measurements are made by untended instruments operating beneath the sea throughout the year. The instruments to be retrieved in March 1996 were positioned in April 1995. They will be recovered through the ice using aircraft-based logistics. The survey of water properties will be conducted at about 15 selected sites in the offshore...

This study will be conducted from Canadian Coat Guard's icebreaker the Perrie Radisson. This study will consist of: a preliminary sidescan sonar survey to determine the distribution of material on the bottom; identification of objects using either a remote operating vehicle or divers in shallow water; and sampling of water, sediment and biota in the vicinity of selected objects. Some objects ide...
