Radar Satellite Observations of Lake Ice Breakup and Freeze-up
Principal Investigator: van der Sanden, Joost J.
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2012 2010 2009
Summary: This project aims to evaluate and develop the utility of Canada’s future RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM) (launch 2018) for the monitoring of lake ice breakup and freeze-up. RCM-type radar images will be simulated using data from Canada’s current radar satellite – that is - RADARSAT-2. Validation data in the form of oblique aerial photographs are required to assess the accuracy of the image pr...

Northern Hydrology and Climatology Studies
Principal Investigator: Prowse, T.D.
Licensed Year(s): 1990
Summary: Spring breakup in Northern Rivers are often associated with record water levels and often lead to flooding. Present methods of forecasting the severity of these events are hampered by lack of understanding. The acquired knowledge and understanding obtained from these studies will be applied to the enhancement of suitable models for predicting the time and magnitude of these events....

Sounds generated by ice cracking
Principal Investigator: Farmer, David
Licensed Year(s): 1988
Summary: To measure sounds generated by ice cracks using seven hydrophones and an ice surface instrument package; to relate these sounds to the source mechanism; to model the ice cracking so as to recover bulk ice parameters from the observed signal...

Winter Ice Thickness in Mackenzie River Delta and Hay River, NWT
Principal Investigator: Sherstone, David A.
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988
Summary: to determine the rate of ice growth and decay in major river channels; to obtain a long-term record of the speed at which ice grows, the maximum thickness of ice, and the date at which the ice is thickest; to investigate the rate at which ice thins before break-up...

Hydrologic studies in the NWT in 1987.
Principal Investigator: Prowse, Terry D
Licensed Year(s): 1987
Summary: To study river ice jams and break up in the Fort Simpson region, to study Mackenzie River and Delta ice break up as well as the water balance in Mackenzie Delta Lakes. To study snow-soil interactions near Resolute Bay....

Ambient Noise Under Ice
Principal Investigator: Farmer, D.
Licensed Year(s): 1987
Summary: To study the generation of noise due to ice, the propagation of sound under ice, the character of noice prior to summer ice break-up and the seasonal variation of ice noise....

Licence #5084
Principal Investigator: Williams, Kerstin
Licensed Year(s): 1985
Summary: Comparative studies of living diatom flora during and after ice break-up with diatom thanatocoenoces (death assemblages) preserved in the sediments....

Licence #2675
Principal Investigator: McCAnn, S.B.
Licensed Year(s): 1981
Summary: To document shoreline and tidal flat conditions including an assessment of ice conditions at break-up. An examination and collection of sediments and small organisms (fauna) for future analysis and cataloguing....

Ice action on intertidal flats.
Principal Investigator: Gilbert, Robert
Licensed Year(s): 1981
Summary: To observe ice action on intertidal flats at break-up and small samples of bottom sediments and organisms (10 kg. in total) for future lab analyses....
