Ice Profiling Sonar

Animation of Sea Ice as measured from above and below

This animation describes how the Ice Profiling Sonar (IPS) measures ice draft. The IPS is an upward-looking sonar that is moored to the seafloor and is deployed for periods of up to one year.  Also shown here is a Radarsat image depicting ice movement over the IPS mooring. See animation here.

Victoria Harbour flood modeling

Victoria Inner Harbour Flood Inundation Modeling

Worked with ASL Environmental Sciences' numerical modeler and remote sensing staff to simulate flood inundation due to sea level rise coupled with storm surges and tidal oscillations. Used their data to create a time step animation to show potential flooding of the inner harbour of Victoria, BC.   See animation here.

Pacific Ocean Mesoscale Eddy Study

Created TOPEX/Poseidon Sea Surface Height Anomaly animations for the North Pacific.  Mesoscale eddies of the North Pacific Ocean impact marine life wherever they are present. These eddies form along the coast of British Columbia and Alaska and generally move westward. They contain volumes of coastal water that match the volume of water in Lake Michigan. This water is rich in nutrients and supports marine plant growth. These eddies are one of the main sources for the delivery of nutrients out into the open ocean.

Trail Camera exhibit showing wildlife video collected in the southern Vancouver Island area

Vancouver Island has a rich collection of wildlife. Trail cameras can be used to get a view of this wildlife and to observe, safely,animal behaviour both in daylight and night conditions. The cameras have motion sensors to detect movement and can automatically record photos or videos of animals that pass by. They are battery operated and can be left out for days, weeks or even months in remote locations. They are typically designed for all weather conditions and can be strapped and locked to trees on animal trails or forest margins. As some animals are particularly curious (black bears), options are available to place trail cameras in metal security boxes for protection.

In this display, you will see a 15 minute video loop of animals from southern Vancouver Island including bear, elk, cougar, pine marten, beaver etc. Videos were collected by Rob Bowen of Diversified Scientific Solutions.
