Terrain Mapping and Surficial Material Sampling - East Credit Lake
Principal Investigator: DesRosiers, Patrick
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The objectives of this project are: 1. to create a map of the area that displays the different surficial materials, landforms, and processes that have shaped the earth’s surface; 2. to determine the glacial history of the area by making observations of ice flow indicators; 3. to collect samples from a variety of different surficial materials deposited by glaciers; 4. to analyze the samples in ...

Canatec Ice Drift Beacon Field Test
Principal Investigator: Tiffin, Scott
Licensed Year(s): 2010
Summary: The goal of this study is to carry out test trials on new Canatec beacons over several months in a real field environment. The researcher will charter a Twin Otter from Inuvik and fly out over the target area. Four beacons will be deployed by parachute from the plane at 500 feet. It is the researchers desire to develop research and professional links and relationships from the NWT on a longer ...

Devon Canada Corporation - Environmental Studies of the Ice Environment for the Proposed Beaufort Sea Offshore Drilling Program
Principal Investigator: Fabijan, Michael F
Licensed Year(s): 2003
Summary: A team consisting of two ice specialists, one locally hired wildlife monitor and one locally hired field technician will be flown by helicopter from Inuvik to perform on-ice field work at Devon's western and eastern offshore drilling locations. No low-l...

Ice Thickness Topography Study - Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Melling, Humfrey
Licensed Year(s): 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: As part of an on-going study, sonar instruments will be recovered through the ice at three locations on the continental shelf that is located north and east of Tuktoyaktuk. The sonars provide information about the motion, thickness and ridging of sea ice. A survey of seawater properties, including temperature and salinity, will also be conducted at selected sites....

Ice Flow and Microclimate Survey at Agassiz Ice Cap, Ellesmere Island
Principal Investigator: Waddington, Edwin D.
Licensed Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researcher will survey the positions of ice markers used to track the ice motion. A radio-echo sounder will be used to measure the thickness of the glacier ice over the area of interest. This project is in association with the Geological Survey of Canada and Dr. R.M. Koerner who is studying ice cores from the site for climate change indicators....

Late Quaternary Dynamics of the Labrador/Foxe Sectors of the Laurentide Ice Sheet and Ice Sheet/Ocean Interaction in the North Atlantic
Principal Investigator: Miller, Gifford H.
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1991 1990 1989 1987
Summary: The Researcher and his team will conduct a study which relates to past glacial activity and sea level change in the eastern Canadian Arctic. The studies will concentrate on evidence for the direction and timing of ice movement in Frobisher Bay and on the adjacent Baffin Shelf....

Hobson's Ice Island
Principal Investigator: Jeffries, Martin O.
Licensed Year(s): 1990 1987
Summary: To carry out ice core drilling in Hobson's Ice Island; ice core drilling in multiyear sea ice attached to Hobson's Ice Island; measure ice thickness of Hobson's Ice Island; deploy satellite positioning buoys on ice islands....

Licence #5034
Principal Investigator: Topham, David
Licensed Year(s): 1985
Summary: To install current meter arrays and acoustic equipment in the vicinity of an ice keel for a period of about three weeks to better understand the hydrodynamic drag of sea ice arising from ice keels....

Licence #5016
Principal Investigator: Frederking, R.
Licensed Year(s): 1985
Summary: Measure general environmental factors, obtain temperature and salinity profile of the ice cover; ice features will be described and documented; measure ice movements by using arrays of reflectors and an electronic distance measuring device; measure ice pressures....
