Principal Investigator:Rouse, Wayne R Licenced Year(s):
The objectives of the research are to: pursue temperature and energy balance studies on Great Bear Lake; determine if Great Bear Lake’s climate behaves like that of Great Slave Lake, or if its unique geographical position and physical attributes make it distinctive; and to explore the temperature structure of the atmosphere above Great Bear Lake and link this with heat and moisture exchanges betwe...

The research team will operate from two fly camps beside the northern coast of Liverpool Bay, and two camps in the Mason Bay area in the northest portion of Richards Island. Transportation to the camps will be by float plane and boat. All human waste will be buried, and all non-burnable waste will be packed out. Equipment used will consist of shovels and trowels to clear slumped sediment from co...

The purpose of this research is to place automated instruments to measure the wind, temperature, water levels and wave height and frequency at or near a planned drill site for Shell Canada. These instruments will be installed and monitored during our visit to the site and then the instruments will be left to collect data until they are picked up on September 15, 1993. Bird movements and their ha...
