Using Remote Sensing to Support Cumulative Impact Monitoring of Water Resources in the Northwest Territories.
Principal Investigator: Tsui, Olivier
Licensed Year(s): 2014
Summary: The objective of the winter field survey is to determine and record lakes where ice has frozen to the bottom and areas where floating ice is present. Along with obtaining this information, snow depth, ice thickness, ice type, photos, and local weather conditions will be recorded. The objective of the summer field work is to observe broad wetland types and the extent and presence of submerged aquat...

PolarDARN - The northern hemisphere polar portion of the international SuperDARN (Super Dual Auroral Radar Network) program
Principal Investigator: Sofko, George J
Licensed Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2004
Summary: The objective of this research is to measure high and low voltage patterns hundreds of kilometers above the ground and out into space along the Earth's magnetic field lines. This information is critical to personnel in space and to maintenance of the satellite telecommunications. Radar transmitting and receiving electronics will be installed in a small building with an antenna array outside. A ...

Mackenzie Valley Landslide Geotechnical Investigations
Principal Investigator: Nichol, Susan L.
Licensed Year(s): 2005
Summary: The objective is to improve knowledge about landslides in the Mackenzie Valley. The results of this study will enable better environmental impact assessments and help to reduce environmental impacts related to the construction and operation of the proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline. As well, the results will have a broader application to a wide range of future development activities in the region....

Summary: Methods of data collection will include water quality and bottom sampling in Lac de Gras and Lac du Sauvage; automatic and manual water level recordings; bathometric work; automatic weather stations and the monitoring of air-borne particles and visibility; continuation of baseline studies of soils and terrain, and vegetation; fish population, habitat, health, and spawning habits studies; baseline ...

Studies on Water Vapor, Aerosol and Snow Crystals in Arctic
Principal Investigator: Kikuchi, Katsuhiro
Licensed Year(s): 1995
Summary: Main observation will be conducted from the middle of December to the end of January at the Inuvik Research Centre. Some instruments will be operated from the beginning of November. Vertical pointing Doppler radar, precipitation measuring instruments, microwave radiometer, pyranometers and automated weather station will be set up. These data will be stored by personal computer and digital data ...

BASE - Beaufort and Arctic Storms Experiment.
Principal Investigator: Hudak, Dave
Licensed Year(s): 1994
Summary: Researchers will collect data by installing portable doppler radar at Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk, using weather balloons at Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk, using the National Research Council Convair 580 aircraft to fly tracks through storms and to release dropsondes, using existing weather observing sites and satellite pictures. The objectives of this study is to better understand and predict weather and th...
