AirMeth 2018
Principal Investigator: Hartmann, Jörg
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this survey are to measure patterns of methane (CH4) concentrations over the Mackenzie Delta and to quantify the emissions of CH4 from this area. Together with the data of our previous campaigns we will be able to analyse the interannual variability of methane fluxes. Furthermore, the research team will investigate the possibility of linking in-situ data of tundra landscape ch...


Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic
Principal Investigator: Merzouk, Anissa
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The 2017 field program constitutes a subset of activities of the ArcticNet’s marine-based research program that has been conducted in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (IRS) within the framework of Scientific Research Licenses awarded for 2009-2013, for 2014-2015 and for 2016-2017. Planned activities will focus on the recovery and deployment of oceanographic moorings as part of ArcticNet’s Long...


Influence of changing active-layer thickness on permafrost peatland trace gas exchanges and carbon balance
Principal Investigator: Sonnentag, Oliver
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013
Summary: The project of the present application is the continuation of year-round eddy covariance measurements of carbon, water and energy fluxes at Scotty Creek, established in 2013 as part of licence #15816. The key methodology is tower-mounted micrometeorological measurements around the eddy covariance technique using an open-path infra-red gas analyzer and a sonic anemometer. These measurements are ...


AirMeth
Principal Investigator: Hartmann, Jörg
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2013 2012
Summary: The objectives of this survey are to establish patterns of methane (CH4) concentration in the atmosphere over the Mackenzie delta region and to quantify the emission of CH4 from these areas. Together with the data from previous data the research team should be able to estimate the annual contribution of the Mackenzie delta region to the atmospheric methane budget. Furthermore the research team wil...


Airborne Observations in Support of NETCARE
Principal Investigator: Abbatt, Jon
Licensed Year(s): 2015
Summary: The NETCARE observations will be covered the range from Longyearbyen, Svalbard (European Arctic) until Inuvik (NWT – Polar 6 aircraft only) and Barrow (Alaska – Polar 5 aircraft only). The observational platforms will be two aircraft: 1) the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) POLAR 5, a modified DC-3 aircraft; and 2) the AWI POLAR 6, also a modified DC-3 aircraft. The two platforms will be coordin...


Radiation – Aerosol – Cloud Experiment in the Arctic Circle (RACEPAC)
Principal Investigator: Ehrlich, André
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: These research activities combine investigations of clouds and atmospheric aerosol in the Beaufort Sea. The main aim of the cloud studies is to improve the understanding of the cloud-related processes in the Arctic atmosphere and to use these measurements to improve the performance of regional and global climate models of the Arctic. To understand cloud processes knowledge on aerosol properties wh...


O-buoy measurements of ozone, carbon dioxide and bromine oxide over frozen surface of Hudson Bay and Arctic Ocean
Principal Investigator: Bottenheim, Jan W
Licensed Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The goal of this project is to take part in establishment of a long-term observation network to measure concentrations of two important greenhouse gases (ozone and carbon dioxide) as well as bromine oxide. Bromine oxide is a key chemical reagent determining the presence of ozone accompanied with full set of meteorological data and detailed geographic information across the Arctic Ocean and Hudson ...


ArcticNet: an Integrated Regional Impact Study of the Coastal Western Canadian Arctic.
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Martin
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The central aim of the ArcticNet marine-based research program is to study on a long-term basis how climate induced changes are impacting the marine ecosystem, contaminant transport, biogeochemical fluxes, and exchange processes across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere interface in the Canadian Arctic Ocean. Ultimately, the knowledge generated from this multi-year program will be integrated into region...


Study on the Vertical Distribution of Ice in Arctic Clouds (VERDI)
Principal Investigator: Bierwirth, Eike A
Licensed Year(s): 2012
Summary: Climate change and sea ice change affects all who live in the north. The aim of this project is to improve understanding of the physical processes in Arctic clouds and their contribution to the current changes in the polar environment, and thereby reducing uncertainties in regional and global model simulations important for future weather and climate prediction. These research activities combin...


Exchange of carbon gas fluxes over low arctic tundra
Principal Investigator: Lafleur, Peter M
Licensed Year(s): 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2007 2005 2004
Summary: The research team intends to study how important greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide and methane, are exchanged between tundra surfaces and the atmosphere. They will measure these exchanges over various tundra types and relate them to environmental variables such as soil properties and weather, in hopes of understanding more about how future climate change will impact the land surface and how these ...
