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...

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...

Noell Lake Ice Study - Hydro-ecological Responses of Arctic Tundra Lakes to Climate Change and Landscape Perturbation
Principal Investigator: Wrona, Frederick J
Licensed Year(s): 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The overall objective of this research component is to improve knowledge on lake ice and its effect on food webs/productivity in small Arctic lake systems in order to better predict changes that could occur under changing climate. The methodology described here pertains to research activities involving the automated ice buoy and instrumented subsurface mooring system for continuous monitoring o...

Hydro-ecological Responses of Arctic Tundra Lakes to Climate Change and Landscape Perturbation
Principal Investigator: Wrona, Frederick J
Licensed Year(s): 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The overall objective of this study is to develop a model that can be used to look at the vulnerability of small arctic lakes and ponds to changing climate. Lake Ice Study: Lakes 5A, 5B and Noell Lake (MAP-2 of the original licence application) will be visited in mid-April to measure lake ice. Holes will be made in the ice using an ice corer. Ice thickness and composition will be determined by...

Assessing snowpack water equivalent distribution in the Exeter-Yamba-Daring Lake catchment, Coppermine River Basin, NWT using in-situ snow surveys and various scales of passive microwave remote sensing data
Principal Investigator: English, Michael C
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This project would improve the national snow water equivalent (SWE) monitoring capabilities by acquiring the necessary data to estimate SWE in the snow covered tundra environment. Transportation for local surveys will be by snowmobiles. Regional surveys...

Quaternary Geology of the Winter Lake Map Area
Principal Investigator: Kerr, Daniel E.
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The researcher will be conducting geological field work in the region defined by the NTS Winter Lake Map (No. 86A). The work will involve surveying the land features and collecting samples of the rock and sediments in order that this information can be summarized on a geological map....

Mass Balance Measurements of White and Baby Glaciers, Axel Heiberg Island. Limnology of Colour Lake and Impact of Human Activity on Colour Lake Wetland
Principal Investigator: Adams, Peter
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1991 1990 1988 1987
Summary: The project will continue to take measurements of the accumulation of snow on the glaciers and try to ascertain how much snow and ice has been lost or gained since it was measured in 1990. Limnology experiments will be conducted on Colour Lake. Ice regimes will be monitored....

Investigation of Frost Heave in Lake Bottom Sediments
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licensed Year(s): 1990 1987
Summary: The research team will monitor the amount of heave that occurs in lake-bottom sediments during winter, after water freezes to the bottom of lakes, because these environments are the best for examining the hydrology of frost heaving....

Licence #2059
Principal Investigator: McGregor, C.A.
Licensed Year(s): 1976
Summary: Parsons Lake - a quantitive description of vegetation with organic content, ice content and moisture content. Sabine Peninsula - preliminary terrain sensitivity classification for use in planning transporation facilities....
