Lake and River Ice Fieldwork in support of PermASAR data analysis
Principal Investigator: van der Sanden, Josephus J
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: This project aims to undertake fieldwork in the context of the PermASAR winter campaign. The data collected will support the evaluation and development of radar satellite Earth observation (EO) technology for application to the mapping of river and lake ice processes and properties. The research team expect the fieldwork to take place over a period of two to three weeks in the months of Februar...

PermASAR - Airborne SAR campaign on permafrost soils and boreal forests in the Canadian North-West
Principal Investigator: Hajnsek, Irena
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: For this project the research team will conduct the collection of microwave radar backscatter data of permafrost and boreal forest at wavelengths of 3cm (X-band), 6cm (C-band), 10cm (S-band) and 23cm (L-band). This process will capture two stable permafrost active layer states: thawed and frozen. The research team will derive information about permafrost (e.g. soil status, soil moisture) and about...

Remote Sensing and Geophysics of Tundra Landscapes
Principal Investigator: Ullmann, Tobias
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018
Summary: The proposed project will investigate the possibility of linking field-measured characteristics of tundra landscapes (e.g., active layer thickness, soil moisture, plant distribution and ecosystem composition, etc.) with remotely-sensed data. The overall objective of the project is to identify the connections that exist between observable surface properties and their associated subsurface/permafros...

Variability in peat plateau energy balance and water chemistry along a warming gradient
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: This research is physically based on a peat plateau and a peat bog, both close to Yellowknife. There are two primary objectives to this research. The first involves quantifying surface energy balances in areas where degradation of peat is pronounced and where it is not. Suprapermafrost water from the degraded and non-degraded sites will be analyzed for nutrients and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) ...

Massive Ice Study in Granular Deposits
Principal Investigator: Pollard, Wayne H
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: Sand, gravel and crushed stone are valuable geological resources, collectively known as aggregates. They are essential bed, foundation and building materials. The presence of massive ice in aggregate deposits results in a series of resource management problems, particularly for the oil industry and its contractors who rely on local granular deposits as building material. From an environmental pers...

Long-term ecological and geomorphological investigations in the alpine tundra of the Mackenzie Mountains, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kershaw, G. Peter
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: This study is to monitor the environmental impacts of disturbances caused by the Canol Project and to measure the effects on permafrost of climate change. The Canol disturbance studies have been underway since the late 1970's and the permafrost studies since 1990. This is year 15 of a 20-year study. Access during the summer is via the Yukon along the Canol Road through Macmillan Pass. Beyond...

Use of Ground Penetrating Radar to Assess Subsurface Sediments in the Fort Smith, Slave, Hay River and Liard Deltas
Principal Investigator: Jol, Harry M.
Licensed Year(s): 1992 1991 1990
Summary: Surveys will be conducted on the surface of the delta plains. A Pulse Ekko IV ground penetrating radar system will be used to take measurements every 1 to 2 metres using this portable system. These waves due to their frequency (50 to 200 MHz) have no affect on the environment (they are similar to FM radio waves)....

Geotechnical Investigation Using Ground Probing Radar Surveys
Principal Investigator: Kasper, Jennifer
Licensed Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researcher and team will continue to conduct ground penetrating radar (GPR) surveys to provide two dimensional stratigraphic and structural geotechnical information. *** Research Project undertaken in Salluit, northern Quebec. Scientific Research Licence issued to enable researcher to obtain support at the Iqaluit Research Centre....
