Principal Investigator:English, Mike Licenced Year(s):2003
The objectives of the research are to examine how increasing active layer depth, surficial geology, vegetation, slope and aspect impact changes in shallow groundwater and surface stream chemistry in two subbasins of the Daring Lake basin in the headwater...
Principal Investigator:Strong, G.S. Licenced Year(s):
The purpose of this study is to obtain quantitative information on atmospheric temperatures, moisture, and winds from ground level to 15,000 km (or higher) above sea level (ASL), using instrumented weather balloons (radiosondes). It is proposed to transport the instrumentation and other items by truck to Fort Simpson airport. The system is self contained and can be installed in hours upon arrival....
Principal Investigator:Gulley, Angela L. Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will continue a project begun in 1991 which included mapping the local geology adjacent to the hotsprings, conducting a geochemical analysis of the springwaters, monitoring the physical properties, calculating natural discharge rates and conducting a pumping test and monitoring of depositional rates of tufa accumulations....
Principal Investigator:Dean, Ken Licenced Year(s):1991
Satellite imagery, hydrologic data and field measurements will be used to develop a computer model of the thawing of sea ice and freezing of water in this area. The investigators will drill a hole through the ice and measure water temperature, salinity and turbidity....
Principal Investigator:Miller, Raoul Licenced Year(s):
Mr. Miller and Mark Abbott will take water samples and cores from the sediment at the bottom of several lakes on Laird and Becher Peninsulas, Baffin Island. The purpose of the sample collection is to find out about past climate of the area and also to see what impacts human activity in the Arctic might have on these lakes....
Principal Investigator:Bohn, Arne Licenced Year(s):
To conduct an assessment of the impacts of new mining and water discharge. The studies will include: - updating information on soil types and vegetation. - updating information on wildlife habitat. - updating information on water quality and fish habitat. - examining background levels of trace metals associated with Pine Point Mining activity....
Principal Investigator:Nason, Jeremy Licenced Year(s):
1) Conventional survey of glacier, 2) To take ablation measurements, 3) To take water discharge measurements, 4) To measure suspended materials and bed load movements 5) To make meteorological observations....
