Airborne SAR and passive microwave measurements over snow covered tundra for CoReH20 retrieval validation and land surface model testing
Principal Investigator: Derksen, Chris
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012
Summary: The proposed European Space Agency Earth Explorer 7 CoReH20 satellite mission has the primary objective of retrieving snow water equivalent (SWE) over land at a high spatial resolution (200-500 metres). This would make available high resolution, satellite derived SWE, for monitoring and modeling applications. To-date, airborne measurements to test the CoReH20 satellite mission concept have been ac...

Beaufort Sea beluga satellite tagging program
Principal Investigator: Richard, Pierre
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: Beluga whales will be herded into shallow waters with boats and kept there for a short period of time. Whale size and sex will be determined and a small sample of skin will be taken for DNA analysis. Satellite tags will be attached to the dorsal ridge area of ten whales. These tags will allow the researchers to locate the whales' movements and diving patterns over the next several months....

Radio tagging of broad whitefish (Coregonus nasus) on the Arctic Red River
Principal Investigator: Chang-Kue, Ken T.J.
Licensed Year(s): 1993
Summary: The field work of this project will involve attaching radio tags or transmitters on 20 broad whitefish at a location approximately 40 km from the mouth of the Arctic Red River. The movements of these whitefish from September to the following June can then be monitored to determine their migration routes, spawning areas and overwintering areas. Data from the radio transmitters is collected by a s...

An algorithm for estimating aerial snow water equivalent in the Northwest Territories using passive microwave data
Principal Investigator: Gan, Thian Yew
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993
Summary: Given the vast size of the N.W.T., it is very difficult to accurately measure the amount of water that is made available from snow (called snow water equivalents or SWE). A variety of agencies have collected data from climate stations and satellites and this data can be used to estimate SWE. This study will involve taking measurements of snow on the ground and comparing these measurements to th...

An Evaluation of SPOT Data to Map Ground Cover in the Canadian High Arctic
Principal Investigator: Jetty, Tammy
Licensed Year(s): 1991
Summary: The Researcher will carry out fieldwork in association with Dr. Cheryl M. Pearce. The study will investigate if the the response of arctic surfaces to climate changes can be detected, monitored and mapped using space imagery....

An Evaluation of Data Collected by Orgiting Satellites to Detect and Monitor Arctic Surfaces
Principal Investigator: Pearce, Cheryl M.
Licensed Year(s): 1993 1992 1991 1990
Summary: The Researcher will examine what distinguishes arctic surfaces spatially and spectrally and which surfaces can be detected and identified by sensors on orbiting satellites, and will test the hypothesis that orbiting satellites can be used to detect and monitor thaw slumps, coastal erosion and other physical and biological manifestations of environmental change in the arctic....
