Ice Thickness Topography Study -Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licensed Year(s): 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researchers will retrieve untended sonar instruments operating beneath the sea that were positioned in April 1994. After servicing, these instruments will be re-deployed at the same locations to continue the observations for another year. A survey of water water properties will be collected at about 20 sites in the offshore and observations made using a lowered probe to 1500 m depth or to t...

Beaufort Sea Ice Motion Programme - Mesoscale Flow Features Study
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licensed Year(s): 1988 1987
Summary: To deploy 11 drifting buoys to improve description of oceanic flow variations on scales of 5-50 km over the Mackenzie shelf of the southern Beaufort Sea; to investigate the relationship between such variations, seafloor topography and shelf water baroclinicity; to estimate the uncertainty which such fluctuations introduce into deterministic models of pack-ice drift...
