Monthly means of temperature, salinity and sigma-t for the Gulf of St. Lawrence by B Petrie( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This atlas divides the continental shelf and slope area from the Cabot Strait at the entrance of the Gulf of St Lawrence to Cape Cod into 68 subareas based primarily on topography. For each area, it calculates the monthly means, standard deviations, and extremes of temperature and salinity, and presents the results as tables, time series plots at selected depths, and contoured plots with time (depth) as the horizontal (vertical) axis. Optimal estimation was used to calculate the temperature, salinity, and sigma-t distributions at 0, 30, 50, 100, and 150 metres depth, and at the bottom, for the 15th of February, May, August, and November (corresponding to the winter, spring, summer, and fall). In addition, the atlas combines these results to determine the volumetric temperature and salinity distributions for those four periods. The appendix tabulates the number of years in which the data were collected for each subarea by month and depth

Herring tagging in the vicinity of the Scotian Shelf and Gulf of St. Lawrence by the Maritimes Region, 1973-1982 by Wayne T Stobo( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1973 and 1982 over 341,000 herring were tagged throughout the Bay of Fundy, Scotian Shelf, and southern Gulf of St Lawrence to examine stock structure and movements. Every major herring fishery in these areas was a subject of this decade-long tagging program, which attempted to distinguish the various known and suspected spawning components perceived at the time. Much of the data has never been examined, and for some areas, previous examinations utilized only early tag recoveries. This examination suggests that current understandings of stock identities and migration patterns might warrant reconsideration or modification. This is especially true for juvenile herring stock components, but also for a number of adult components."--Document

Intercomparison of current measurements from the Georges Bank Frontal Study by John W Loder( Book )

5 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From June-October 1988 and July 1989, a field study was conducted of currents and mixing at a tidal front on Georges Bank. As part of this study, current measurements were obtained from moored instruments at 6 sites and from a ship-mounted (Ametek Straza) acoustic Doppler current profiler (ACDP) operated nearly continuously during two principal survey periods. The moored instruments were Aanderaa (paddle-wheel version) current meters deployed at 3-5 depths at each site, a bottom-mounted (RD instruments) ACDP deployed at one of the sites, and two InterOcean S4 electromagnetic current meters deployed on one of the RCM moorings. The Ametek measurements included current profiles in the vicinity of the mooring sites while the research vessel was at anchor obtaining repeated turbulence profiles. This report presents the results of an intercomparison of currents measured with the different types of instrumentation
Satellite-tracked surface drifter program : Scotian shelf 2007 and the Gulf of St. Lawrence 2008-2009 by Augustine Van der Baaren( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of a surface current study, satellite-tracked surface drifters were deployed in eastern Canadian waters to collect surface current data. The purpose of the study is to use drifter data to calibrate and validate surface trajectories calculated from an ocean forecast model, Canadian East Coast Ocean Model, CECOM. Two validation trials were conducted. Satellite-tracked surface drifters manufactured by MetOcean Data Systems Limited and Seimac Limited were deployed in the fall of 2007 and 2008 to collect the data. A total of 13 drifters were released from ships on the Scotian Shelf in 2007, and 23 in the Gulf of St. Lawrence in 2008. In this report, the methods of data processing, error editing and calculation of surface velocities are described, as well as multiple maps describing the deployment sites and series positions.--Document
Short-term physical, chemical and biological variability on the Scotian Shelf by Blair J. W Greenan( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daily to weekly timescale variability on the Scotian Shelf is studied using a combination of historical data sets and new field data collected in the Fall of 2000. The intent of this study is to improve the understanding of the relationship between the physical forcing mechanisms and the response of the chemical and biological fields on these short time scales. In section 2, data from 2 previous field experiments are analysed in the context of the current study. In Section 3, SeaWiFS satellite ocean colour for the period 1997-2000 are used to describe spatial correlation of chlorophyll biomass on the Scotian Shelf. The results of a deployment of 2 moorings at Station 2 on the Halifax Section are given in section 4. A summary of these various data sets is provided in Section 5
Moored current meter and CTD observations from Barrow Strait : 2003-2004 by James M Hamilton( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document reports on the measurements of ten instrumented moorings deployed in the eastern end of Barrow Strait from August 2003 to August 2004. The moorings provide yearlong records of current, temperature, salinity, and ice drift and thickness, extending a data time series started in August of 1998.--Includes text from document
Seabed shear stress estimates at the Cohasset and Hibernia oil production sites by Carl Anderson( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report assembles results of stress computations used to estimate seabed shear stress at two oil production sites on the eastern Canadian continental shelf: Cohasset on Sable Island Bank, and Hibernia on the Grand Banks. In both cases, computations were made using the one-dimensional sediment transport model SEDTRANS96 (Li and Amos, 1997). Inputs to the model were near-seabed current measurements and surface wave observations in 1993 and 1995-6 (Cohasset) and 1998-2000 (Hibernia). Surficial sediment grain size & density were assigned realistic site-specific values. Results are reported as time series of stress velocity and volumetric rate of sediment transport. Statistics & histograms of the input & output variables are also presented. A sensitivity analysis was also performed to examine the dependence of seabed shear stress on current, wave height, and surficial sediment grain size
Mapping the nearshore using a unique towfish by Herbert Vandermeulen( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The specifications and design of a towfish system are described for shallow water use. The towfish contains a color video camera, high frequency sidescan and positioning transponder. The towfish offers rapid 'transect' views of the bottom useful for describing habitat classes. The towfish is unique in that the video acts as a ground truth for the sidescan imagery in real time. The transponder on the towfish interacts with a transceiver mounted to the vessel hull to produce positional data to dGPS specifications (sub-meter precision). All video is georeferenced and stored as digital video clips in MapInfo GIS projects which also include towfish tracks and high frequency sidescan images (330 kHz, 30 m swath). The GIS projects can be used to generate habitat maps
An echosounder system ground-truthed by towfish data a method to map larger nearshore areas by Herbert Vandermeulen( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The specifications and design of an echosounder system are described for shallow water use. A BioSonics, Inc. DT-X digital echosounder with 210 and 430 kHz single beam transducers was custom fitted to a 22' research vessel with a unique transducer cage. The echosounder system can be run at 4 knots, offering rapid coverage of large areas of the bottom. Towfish transects (video and sidescan) are used to ground-truth the echosounder data, creating benthic habitat classes and maps. All positional data is collected at dGPS specifications (sub-meter precision)
Ground penetrating radar for helicopter snow and ice surveys by Louis A Lalumiere( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report reviews available Ground Penetrating Radars (GPRs) that could be incorporated into existing hard-mounted helicopter survey platforms to measure snow depths and freshwater ice thickness. Past GPR-based snow and ice-thickness sensors are compared with new single and multi-antenna GPRs and recommendations are made for GPR hardware procurement for both the BO-105 and Bell 206L helicopters
Satellite-derived daily sea surface temperature maps for areas "H" to "J" from 1984 to 1986 : H: Hudson Strait and Ungava Bay to J: Irminger Sea by Canada( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Satellite imagery from the NOAA series have been used to produce daily sea surface temperature maps for specific areas off the east coast of Canada. Each temperature map is accompanied by a visible wavelength map which can be used for basic cloud discrimination. Details of the processing steps for turning a satellite infrared image into a SST map are given together with scientific and applications limitations. Details on how to access and use the atlas are also given. Each regional atlas is intended to serve as both a quicklook of available data and as a prototype or pilot atlas to assess regional demands and specifications. Catalogues for the images are presented here which include the location of a specific map within the archiving system
