Principal Investigator:Tsui, Olivier Licenced Year(s):
The objective of the winter field survey is to determine and record lakes where ice has frozen to the bottom and areas where floating ice is present. Along with obtaining this information, snow depth, ice thickness, ice type, photos, and local weather conditions will be recorded. The objective of the summer field work is to observe broad wetland types and the extent and presence of submerged aquat...
Principal Investigator:Sofko, George J Licenced Year(s):20132012201120102009
The objective of this research is to measure high and low voltage patterns hundreds of kilometers above the ground and out into space along the Earth's magnetic field lines. This information is critical to personnel in space and to maintenance of the satellite telecommunications.
Radar transmitting and receiving electronics will be installed in a small building with an antenna array outside. A ...
Principal Investigator:Nichol, Susan L. Licenced Year(s):
The objective is to improve knowledge about landslides in the Mackenzie Valley. The results of this study will enable better environmental impact assessments and help to reduce environmental impacts related to the construction and operation of the proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline. As well, the results will have a broader application to a wide range of future development activities in the region....

The purpose of this study is to examine carbon exchange between the arctic tundra and the atmosphere. Specifically, the researchers are interested in variation in carbon exchange in response to environmental factors such as soil moisture and weather (tem...
Principal Investigator:Digel, Mark Licenced Year(s):
Methods of data collection will include water quality and bottom sampling in Lac de Gras and Lac du Sauvage; automatic and manual water level recordings; bathometric work; automatic weather stations and the monitoring of air-borne particles and visibility; continuation of baseline studies of soils and terrain, and vegetation; fish population, habitat, health, and spawning habits studies; baseline ...
Principal Investigator:Kikuchi, Katsuhiro Licenced Year(s):
Main observation will be conducted from the middle of December to the end of January at the Inuvik Research Centre. Some instruments will be operated from the beginning of November. Vertical pointing Doppler radar, precipitation measuring instruments, microwave radiometer, pyranometers and automated weather station will be set up. These data will be stored by personal computer and digital data ...
Principal Investigator:Hudak, Dave Licenced Year(s):
Researchers will collect data by installing portable doppler radar at Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk, using weather balloons at Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk, using the National Research Council Convair 580 aircraft to fly tracks through storms and to release dropsondes, using existing weather observing sites and satellite pictures. The objectives of this study is to better understand and predict weather and th...
Principal Investigator:Norment, Christopher Licenced Year(s):1991
Mr. Norment is studying the breeding biology of the Harris' Sparrow and White-crowned Sparrow. He will be collecting data on any physical (such as weather, food supply, nest-site, predators) or genetic (such as number of eggs, breeding cycle, condition of females) factors....
Principal Investigator:Hankinson, Flt. LT. K.W. Licenced Year(s):1991
to classify breeding and feeding habitats of snow buntings, wading birds and Arctic hares; use pitfall traps to collect insects; study growth, reproduction and diet of Arctic char; collect bryophytes; map igneous rocks of Esayoo formation; record and map any archaeological sites; record weather observations; collect animal and plant material for carbon isotope ratio analysis and assessment of food...
