Thermal State of Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Siegfried, Dian
Licensed Year(s): 2016 2013 2010
Summary: The objective of this project is to continue an ongoing long-term monitoring of permafrost temperatures on Banks Island and Mould Bay. At these sites the research team have lost remote (satellite) communication and need to make repairs to continue receiving data. The research team are currently monitoring active layer and permafrost temperatures, active layer soil moisture, air temperature, and...

Modelling the Evaporation and Heat Balance of Great Bear Lake
Principal Investigator: Rouse, Wayne R
Licensed Year(s): 2006 2005 2004
Summary: This is the second year of a study that measures the water balance and thermal regimes of Great Bear Lake so that the researchers can determine the linkages between the lake's behaviour and the atmosphere above. Lake temperatures will be measured with se...

Hydrologic Investigation of a Canadian Shield Basin
Principal Investigator: Spence, Chris
Licensed Year(s): 2001 1999 1998
Summary: A number of remote meteorological and hydrometric data collection sites will be constructed around Lower Carp Lake. An island on the lake will be used as a base camp. This island will be used to operate an automatic weather station and hydrometric stations and associated camp to support scientific studies of the Canadian GEWEX effort and to provide meteorological data for use in weather forecasts ...

Permafrost Investigations, western arctic Canada
Principal Investigator: Burn, C. R.
Licensed Year(s): 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 1999 1998
Summary: The researchers will be collecting samples of ground ice and permafrost soil, and measuring air, ground and lake water temperatures. This information will be used to provide an understanding of how permafrost conditions in the region have changed in the last few thousand years. Also measuring ground movement to determine how the ground deforms during the year, in particular, we will be measuring ...

Investigation of ground ice development in sediments of the Mackenzie delta area.
Principal Investigator: Burn, Chris R
Licensed Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991
Summary: The purpose is to collect samples of ground ice and to measure air, ground, and lake temperatures. We use the information to help understand how the permafrost in the area has changed in the last few thousands years, in order to determine what might happen in the future....

Permafrost Studies: Western Arctic Coast
Principal Investigator: Mackay, J. Ross
Licensed Year(s): 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992 1991 1989
Summary: The researcher will continue studies on the origin of permafrost, the ice found within permafrost and processes that help to create the present geocryologic environment. These studies will be conducted on Garry Island, Illisarvik, 20 km southwest of Tuktoyaktuk and at Paulatuk....

On-Shore/Off-Shore Beaufort Shelf Drilling Program
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, S.R.
Licensed Year(s): 1990 1989
Summary: The team will drill and sample five 100 meter boreholes along a transect from northern Richards Island to an anomalous permafrost site 25 Km off-shore. In site testing, geophysical and geothermal logging will accompany the drilling. Undisturbed core will be maintained and shipped to the SINT lab in Inuvik for detailed logging, testing and subsampling....
