Hazards, Sea-level Rise, and Climate Change Impacts on Arctic Coasts
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to; 1) monitor coastal stability and the processes which affect it (winds, waves, sea ice, etc); 2) map coastal features, sediment properties, and ice conditions in the nearshore regions of the Mackenzie Delta an...

Environmental and Sea Level Change in the Northwestern Arctic Archipelago
Principal Investigator: England, John H
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: This research is concerned with the nature and style of past glaciations as well as the history of sea level and climatic changes in the western Arctic. The broad objective is to obtain a long term paleoclimatic record (before the arrival of the Pre-Dors...

Spring Season Coastal Reseach in the Beaufort Region
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: Safe and sustainable hydrocarbon development and potential impacts of climate change on coastal infrastructure and subsistence activities require improved knowledge and understanding of coastal and nearshore seabed properties, and coastal hazards such as...

Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES)
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licensed Year(s): 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims to understand the biogeochemical and ecological consequences of sea ice variability on the Mackenzie Shelf (Beaufort Sea) and provide the infor...

Devon Canada Corporation - Physical Oceanography, Geotechnical Parameters, Ice Environment, Coastal Process and Marine Water Quality for the Proposed Beaufort Sea Offshore Drilling Program.
Principal Investigator: Evans, Kevin
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: The physical oceanography of the Beaufort Sea work will involve the identification and review of existing physical oceanographic data, a summary of this information and the application of this information within the context of the assessment and protecti...

Coastal Impacts of Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licensed Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The Coastal Impacts project on the Beaufort Sea coast has two complementary objectives: 1. To improve our understanding of coastal processes; 2. To develop methods for prediction of coastal impacts of changing climate. Field work will be performed in the modern Mackenzie Delta, along the Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula coast, and at North Head if time permits. Collaborative field work in Ivva...

Coastal evolution and sedimentary processes in the Mackenzie Delta and Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula region
Principal Investigator: Hill, Philip R.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The researchers will examine the rate of coastal change in the outer Mackenzie Delta region in order to understand the factors contributing to present delta formation and coastal erosion, and to understand how global climate warming may affect coastal change. Surveys on beaches, sand bars and delta lakes will be conducted....

Coastal Retreat and Shoreface Dynamics, Tuktoyaktuk Peninsula, Canadian Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Hequette, Arnaud
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The Researcher and team will conduct cliff and beach surveys to measure change in the shoreline position. They will also survey shallow lagoon and nearshore zones in the area of Drift Point and Atkinson Point. Seafloor sediment samples will be collected using a grap sampler and a portable piston corer....

Geotechnical and Geological Conditions of the Beaufort Sea Coastal Zone
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, S.R.
Licensed Year(s): 1990 1989
Summary: Mr. Dallimore and his team intend to re-visit instrumented test-sites, complete mapping of surficial materials and to collect limited soil samples for analyses....
