Howards Pass Access Road (HPAR) Proposed 2019 Baseline Programs
Principal Investigator: Morison, Stephen R
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Proposed surface water and sediment quality and quantity programs involves two rounds of field sampling proposed in mid-July to early August and in late September 2019, to capture typical summer stream flows and low stream flow conditions. Each field program may take between eight to ten days. The objectives of the programs are to confirm and update the fluvial geomorphic classification of each st...


Investigating the relationship between snow microstructure and airborne synthetic aperature radar measurements of tundra snow to improve environmental prediction capabilities in polar regions
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: High resolution Ku-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) has been proposed to measure Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) from space as part of the proposed Canadian Space Agency Terrestrial Snow Mass Mission (TSMM). An opportunity exists to advance the understanding of the Ku-band radar response to snow properties and develop improved retrieval algorithms using airborne sensors that replicate elements of t...


Wind Monitoring in Norman Wells, NT
Principal Investigator: Dares, Matthew J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to develop further insight into the wind energy potential for the economic feasibility of building a wind farm in Norman Wells, a remote community that is dependent on gas-electric generation. A 60 m meteorological tower will be installed in September 2018. This tower is equipped with both heated and unheated anemometers and wind vanes at 40 m, ...


Creating heat from waste: Biomass pellets from landfill destined cardboard
Principal Investigator: Dares, Matthew J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: Aurora Research Institute (ARI) will determine the economic, social, and environmental value from local production of pellets for biomass boilers. During this study ARI work with an industry partner to evaluate and improve the quality of the product, and measure the efficiency and maintenance costs imposed by the cardboard pellet fuel source. Collection of waste cardboard will take place in pa...


Wind Energy Monitoring at Snare Hill
Principal Investigator: Dares, Matthew J
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to continue to measure the wind energy potential at CN Hill (approximately 130 km from Yellowknife) until the site is next serviced and the equipment removed. This is part of an alternative energy study for the Yellowknife area. Wind data will be collected using instruments that measure wind speed, direction, and temperature. Sensors are already in...


Wind Energy Monitoring at High Point
Principal Investigator: Dares, Matthew J
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to continue to measure the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point (approximately 6 km northeast of the Inuvik airport). This is part of an alternative energy study for the Inuvik area. Two full years of wind measurements and an economic analysis will be necessary to confirm the wind energy potential at the Inuvik High Point site. The study ...


GNWT High Point Wind Project - geotechnical investigations
Principal Investigator: Sullivan, Grant
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: Geotechnical investigations are proposed to identify the depth of bedrock and other materials underlying the permafrost onsite. The results of the geotechnical investigations will be used to determine the access route, the project location, and the turbine installation technique. This activity will include drilling of boreholes and collection of samples for testing. Thirteen boreholes are plann...


Predicting the Future(s) of Renewable Energy in Canada's Arctic: MEOPAR Year of Polar Prediction Project
Principal Investigator: Monahan, Adam
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objectives of this project are to: 1. Study how wind power and solar irradiance in the north will change in the future; 2. Working with GNWT and Power Corp, use an instrumented tower to understand the relationship between wind and solar power with larger-scale weather variations and to analyze problems such as mechanical stresses and ice loading; 3. Provide input to refine near-surface proc...


Comparing the snow depths and densities of different habitats in the Beaufort Delta region
Principal Investigator: Kasook, Davonna C
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017
Summary: The objective is to compare differences in snow depth, density and morphology of a heavily forested site and a tundra site. The Principal Investigator (PI) will study the effect landscape (forest vs. tundra) has on seasonal snow pack evolution and physical properties (density, temperature, snow grain morphology, and stratigraphy) of the snowpack. These results will be compared to historical data (...


Wind Energy Monitoring at Yellowknife (2015-2017)
Principal Investigator: Trimble, Annika EV
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015
Summary: The objective of this wind monitoring proposal is to measure the wind energy potential at CN Hill (approximately 130 km from Yellowknife) for two years. This is part of an alternative energy study for the Yellowknife area. Wind data will be collected using instruments that measure wind speed, direction, and temperature. At CN Hill, the sensors will be installed on an existing Northwestel Tower. Tw...
