Principal Investigator: Levesque, Keith R
Licenced Year(s): 2015 2014 2013
Summary: 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...


GXT 2008 Marine Vibroseis Research Project (Flex Wave Test)
Principal Investigator: Rice, Shawn L
Licenced Year(s): 2008
Summary: 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...


Beaufort Shelf Seabed Mapping Project
Principal Investigator: Blasco, Steve M
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: 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...


Bathymetric and Shallow Sediment Core Sampling in McKinley Bay, NWT
Principal Investigator: Hammer, Lorne
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: 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 ...


Gahcho Kue Project Studies
Principal Investigator: Bekhuys, Tim
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: 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...


Niglintgak Field Development 2005 Bathymetry Research Study
Principal Investigator: Seligman, Ben
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: 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...

Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: Imperial Oil Resources Ltd., Aboriginal Pipeline Group, ConocoPhillips Canada (North) Ltd., Shell Canada Limited, and ExxonMobil Canada Properties are continuing baseline studies begun in 2001 as part of the Mackenzie Gas Project. An option of the field...


Acoustic and Biological Test Study for the WesternGeco 2D Mackenzie River and Delta Seismic Programs
Principal Investigator: Rosindell, Keith
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: A test program has been designed in response to National Energy Board, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, and Resources, Wildlife and Economic Development requests to collect information on seismic airgun acoustics within the Mackenzie River and on asso...


Ice Thickness Topography Study - Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licenced Year(s): 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: 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...
