Mass Balance of Arctic Glaciers
Principal Investigator: Koerner, Roy M
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003
Summary: This study monitors glacier health and climatic change in the high Arctic and is part of an ongoing program that began in the early 1960s. It is also part of a larger program studying climate change. The base camp is located at the Polar Continental Sh...

The Seasonal Sea Ice Monitoring & Modelling Site Project (SIMMS)
Principal Investigator: Ledrew, Ellsworth
Licensed Year(s): 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The researcher will measure the meterorological parameters at two primary sites; first year sea ice and multiyear sea ice. Each site consists of tower based sensors to measure various types of radiation, wind speed, wind direction and air temperatures. In addition, snow and ice temperatures are used. The physical properties of snow (depth, wetness, density, and grain microphotography) will be c...

Processes and Fluxes of Contaminants in Aquatic Systems
Principal Investigator: Gregor, Dennis J.
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: Atmospheric contaminants that accumulate in the snow are released during a very short time in the spring when the snow melts and washes out through rivers and lakes into the Arctic Ocean. Contaminants can be bound to substrates, consumed by organisms or transformed so that not all contaminants deposited in the snow reach the Arctic Ocean. In this on-going study, contaminant levels and distributi...

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....

Glacier Mapping, Axel Heiberg Island
Principal Investigator: Young, G.J.
Licensed Year(s): 1991
Summary: Dr. Young and his research team will remap the White Glacier, calculate volumetric change since 1960 and calibrate the annual mass balance record....
