Terrestrial geoscience studies of earthquake (seismic) hazard in the Mackenzie-Beaufort area - 2016 Activities
Principal Investigator: MacLeod, Roger
Licensed Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this research project is to continue the examination of coastal sediment exposures and drained lake basins for evidence for paleo-tsunamis deposits and investigate coastal erosion rates. This year, the research team will be focusing on one task: A small, 2 kg (5 lb), electric powered Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) will be used to collect low-altitude (<90 m) aerial imagery at N...

Beaufort Sea Coastal Geoscience Research
Principal Investigator: Whalen, Dustin JR
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012
Summary: The primary objective of this research continues to be driven towards the safe and sustainable industrial and community development of the Beaufort Sea coastal nearshore region. The research provides the means to improve knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitigate and reduce the impacts of natural...

Tarsiut Caissons - Removal and Remediation Plan
Principal Investigator: Marshall, John J
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The objective of this project at Thetis Bay is to ensure there is no unforeseen debris in the water around the caissons prior to moving. The objective at Tuktoyaktuk is to see if the caissons could be moved close enough to shore to offer a benefit to mitigate shore erosion. One small bathymetry vessel would be used in the program and one large Northern Transportation Company (NTCL) mainline tu...

Geological conditions affecting industrial and community development in the coastal and nearshore regions of the western Canadian Arctic - year 3/3
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steven M
Licensed Year(s): 2010 2009 2008 2007
Summary: This licence is being issued for the scientific research application no. 970. The western Arctic coast is among the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and one of the most sensitive to climate change. This project’s objective is to improve the knowledge of physical conditions in the coastal zone in order to help government agencies, corporations, and local residents understand, mitiga...

Coastal Hazards, Relative Sea-level Change, and Climate Impacts on Northern Coasts and Seaways
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The western Canadian Arctic coast is one of the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and among the most vulnerable to climate change. The causes of this vulnerability have been studied over the past decade. This project involves monitoring coast...

Coastal Impacts of Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steve
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to map the coastline of the Canadian Beaufort Sea in terms of its sensitivity to coastal erosion and monitor changes in the coastline, and to collect information on the morphology of the coast and the sediments which compose it for use in developing and calibrating predictive models of coastal change. In order to achieve these objectives previously proven ...

Coastal retreat and shoreface dynamics on the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula
Principal Investigator: Hequette, Arnaud
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The research will involve the survey of cliffs and beaches located along the shoreline of the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula near Atkinson Point. This information will assist in determining if the shoreline has changed. Measurements will also be taken for water depth in the nearby lagoons and bays. Sediments will be collected from all sites visited for further laboratory analyses....

Coastal evolution in the Mackenzie Delta and Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula region
Principal Investigator: Hill, Philip R.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The field activities consist of three small projects: (1) the measurement of beaches and a survey of Tibjak Beach (located 15km north of Tuktoyaktuk); (2) a study of the sand bars located at the mouth of the East Channel in Kittigazuit Bay; and (3) a preliminary study of the lakes of the Mackenzie Delta in order to determine which lakes will be selected for future research. These activities will ...

Stratigraphy of coastal barriers and under-ice current measurements at Atkinson Point, Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Hequette, Arnaud
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The Canadian Beaufort Sea coast undergoes rapid changes in formation, including the formation and changes of spits and barrier islands. Climatic change, combined with a rise in sea levels, could result in longer ice-free periods, increased wave action and higher rates of coastal retreat and erosion. By measuring spits and barrier islands, analyzing the make-up of the coastal sediments, and measu...

Archeology of the Frobisher Voyages: Early Inuit-European Contact in southeast Baffin Island
Principal Investigator: Fitzhugh, William
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The 1992 season will continue excavations at historic period Inuit sites occupied at the time of the Frobisher voyages and later, to determine the amount and kinds of contacts made with the Frobisher group and its impact on Inuit culture change. Studies will also be made of prehistory Inuit sites of the Pre-Dorset and Dorset cultures. Studies will determine the impact of coastal subsidence that ...
