An Integrated Sea Ice Project for BREA: Detection, Motion, and RADARSAT Mapping of Extreme Ice Features in the Southern Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The objective of this study is to provide information on the thickness distribution, movement, and characteristics of different types of sea ice within the Beaufort Sea Region. The focus will be on hummocked multi-year sea ice referred to as Extreme Ice Features (EIFs). These EIFs are poorly understood, and would be the most hazardous to any engineered structure in the southern Beaufort Sea (such ...

Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) System Study - Part 1 (Ship-based research)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007
Summary: The Circumpolar Flaw Lead (CFL) system study is designed to examine the importance of climate processes in changing the nature of a flaw lead system and the Arctic marine environment in the Northern Hemisphere, and the effect these changes will have on the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, carbon fluxes, and greenhouse gases. Using the Canadian Research Icebreaker (CCGS Amundsen), the team ...

Twin Otter Aerial Surveys of Sea Ice During Fall Freeze-up
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licensed Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: Sea ice is decreasing at an alarming rate throughout the northern hemisphere. The leader of this project is a specialist in the processes which drive sea ice growth and decay. The project team will collect information which can be used to produce bette...

A Seasonal Sea Ice Monitoring Site (SIMS)
Principal Investigator: Barber, David G.
Licensed Year(s): 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The primary objective of the research is to characterize the physical processes of the ice/ocean/atmosphere interface and to develop the capability to measure the pertinent variables using remote sensing data. The operational monitoring, which can be provided by done using satellite remote sensing, is a necessary prerequisite to understanding the impacts of C02-induced warming of the ice-covered ...
