Application of passive seismic methodologies to the determination of overburden thickness in a permafrost-rich environment
Principal Investigator: McPeak, Sara E
Licensed Year(s): 2018
Summary: The objectives of this project are to test if passive seismics can be used to map the thickness of overburden in a permafrost-rich environment; and, to compare overburden thickness derived from passive seismic data and known overburden thickness from drilling. This project will test to see if the earth’s natural vibration can be used to determine how much sand, gravel, soil and permafrost are a...

Canada-Korea-USA Beaufort Sea Geoscience Research Program: 2017 Activities
Principal Investigator: Jin, Young K
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2014 2013
Summary: The agencies involved are undertaking this research to acquire geoscience knowledge about the outer shelf of the Beaufort Sea with intent to address knowledge gaps related to thawing of subsea permafrost and gas hydrates. The research will be made publicly available to northern communities, regulators, the scientific community and industry through the release of scientific papers, maps and reports...

GXT 2008 Marine Vibroseis Research Project (Flex Wave Test)
Principal Investigator: Rice, Shawn L
Licensed Year(s): 2008
Summary: This licence was issued for the scientific research licence application number 782. The objective of GXT’s research is to gather data to identify, model and remove Flex Waves (acoustic waves that becomes trapped in the ice) from the records. Data will be gathered using geophones developed by GXT and new methods of recording and interpreting the data. The project will involve setting out line...

Devon Canada Sahtu Gravity Survey 2007
Principal Investigator: Millman, Peter M
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The objective of this project is to identify geophysical anomolies that will warrant additions to exploration activity (seismic surveys). Three helicopters will be required for this project. Two Hughes 500’s will be used as longline helicopters to collect gravity data. The Hughes 500 is ideal for this longline operation as the helicopter is small and maneuverable. The third support helicopte...

Teleseismic studies in the Lac de Gras area
Principal Investigator: Snyder, David B
Licensed Year(s): 2007 2003 2000 1999
Summary: The objective of this ongoing study is to investigate the structure and composition of the Earth's crust and mantle to depths of 0-300 km from sites in the Lac de Gras region. The researchers seek methods to characterize diamond reservoirs in order to make diamond exploration more efficient and low impact. This research will lead to improved mineral exploration strategies, improved estimates of d...

Evaluation of the potential impacts of seismic surveys on the behaviour and auditory physiology of fish in the Mackenzie River
Principal Investigator: Gyselman, Eric
Licensed Year(s): 2004
Summary: The development of oil and gas in the Mackenzie Delta and Mackenzie Valley will require additional seismic surveying to refine the location and extent of reserves. One method that has been proposed is the use of airgun arrays towed behind survey ships in...

Acoustic and Biological Test Study for the WesternGeco 2D Mackenzie River and Delta Seismic Programs
Principal Investigator: Rosindell, Keith
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: A test program has been designed in response to National Energy Board, Department of Fisheries and Oceans, and Resources, Wildlife and Economic Development requests to collect information on seismic airgun acoustics within the Mackenzie River and on asso...

Environmental survey of a proposed winter 2D seismic program in EL 415, including winter access
Principal Investigator: Newyar, Chuck
Licensed Year(s): 2002
Summary: The study is to obtain specific environmental information to be used in the preparation of an environmental impact assessment for a land use permit application for a winter 2D seismic program spanning the Gwich'in and Sahtu Settlement Areas. Researchers...

Applied Geophysical Research in Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licensed Year(s): 1994 1993 1993 1992 1992 1991
Summary: The researcher and team will conduct several drilling, electrical, radar and seismic surveys to gain a better understanding of the geology and technical properties of ice bearing permafrost....

Ice Island Seismic Refraction
Principal Investigator: Forsyth, D.A.
Licensed Year(s): 1990
Summary: The Researcher will study rocks making up the top 40 km of the earth on the polar margin northeast of Ellef Ringnes Island. The seismic refraction survey will measure the speed of sound waves through the rocks....
