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...


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...


1) Younger Dryas Climate Threshold Events; 2) Assessing Stability of Sea Ice Cover in the Northwest Passage
Principal Investigator: Hodgson, D.A.
Licensed Year(s): 2003 2002 2001 2000
Summary: Under instruction from Natural Resources Canada Climate change program, this project aims to: (1) examine Northwest Victoria Island for evidence of glacial and sea level changes associated with the Younger Dryas cooling period that affected the northern...


Canadian Arctic Archipelago Paleoenvironments: Beaufort Sea Bowhead Whale History Component
Principal Investigator: Dyke, Arthur S.
Licensed Year(s): 1998
Summary: The objective of the work in western Victoria Island is to start establishing a postglacial history for the Beaufort Sea bowhead whale. We have done this very successfully for the Baffin Bay bowhead whale. This is a study of geological fossils, not of living whales, nor of bones at archaeological sites. This information will be used to find out how much sea ice cover has changed through time. A 2 ...


Biogeochemistry of Lakes in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Lesack, Lance
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016 2015 2014 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993
Summary: Work based at the Inuvik Research Centre & will consist of field and lab work focused on 6 to 9 small lakes in the Delta near Inuvik. Field work will involve day trips by boat or helicopter to delta lakes. Two specific studies to be done include: 1) Evaluation of the rates of growth among groups of microscopic aquatic plants among a set of lakes that range from non-transparent to relatively transp...


Climate studies at remote sites in Baffin Island
Principal Investigator: Jacobs, John D.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: Automatic climate stations have been operating at sites on Baffin Island since 1985. Data are collected from these instruments during annual visits to the NWT. At the same time, standard observations are made of other environmental conditions in the vicinity of these stations. During 1994, visits to Amadjuak Lake, the northwest part of the Barnes Ice Cap and the top of the Penny Ice Cap will be...


From ice algae to sediments in the frozen arctic seas: the contribution of direct sedimentation and zooplankton grazing on the vertical flux of carbon
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: The researchers will be examining small marine organisms (algae, zooplankton and phytoplankton) to determine their influence on global warming. Carbon is necessary for the production of carbon dioxide (CO2), and increase levels of CO2 in the atmosphere can contribute to an increase in the earth's overall temperature. The study will examine how these small marine creatures can reduce carbon level...


Late Quaternary history and paleoenvironmental change in the Lake Hazen Basin on Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Smith, Rod
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992
Summary: It is believed that during the last ice-age on northern Ellesmere Island, Lake Hazen was `pushed' further south as a result of the presence of glaciers. The researchers are investigating the Lake Hazen Basin area to determine the nature of this ancient lake. Sediment samples will be taken from both Lake Hazen as well as the surrounding area to study the past environment and organisms (now fossils...


Licence #2532
Principal Investigator: Woo, Ming-ko
Licensed Year(s): 1980
Summary: To study the melt processes of an Arctic snowpack and an Arctic lake ice cover and to compare the stream flow of a glacerized and adjacent non-glacerized basin....


Licence #2276
Principal Investigator: Anderson, John C.
Licensed Year(s): 1978
Summary: 1. To conduct hydrologic studies with regard to highway construction. Measurements of pre-melt snow, ice covers, snow melt, rainfall, stream discharge, suspended sediment concentrations and water temperature in rivers will be taken. 2. Some aerial and road based reconnaissance will also be undertaken....
