Ice Studies

ASL Environmental Sciences has developed a full complement of skills and specially designed instruments to study complex ice environments. Significant interest in Polar environments and the role of ice as a climate change indicator has positioned ASL Environmental Sciences as a world leader in this field. (more ...)

Flow Measurement

Flow Measurement

ASL has been measuring flow in oceans and rivers since its inception in 1978. Early projects used rotor & vane type instruments but these have largely given way to acoustic instruments such as TRDI Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCP). (more ...)

Numerical Modeling

Numerical Modeling

ASL has developed super computing capabilities using MPICH (Message Passing Interface). This is a leading edge parallel processing system. The system has multiple nodes, each with multiple CPUs. It is being used to improve ASL's existing current, sediment transport, ice tracking, and plume models to work faster and in more detail. (more ...)

Wave Measurement

Wave Measurement

ASL uses various technologies for wave measurement including: surface buoy-mounted accelerometers, platform mounted sensors or surface piercing wire gauges, subsurface pressure gauges, and orbital-velocity / surface-track measuring devices such as the ADCP. (more ...)

Sediment Transport

Sediment Transport

ASL has been involved in sediment transport studies since the early 1980s in the Beaufort Sea. These projects were related to offshore oil and gas exploration and government studies. More recent projects have included offshore Nova Scoria, the Fraser River delta and the Columbia River. (more ...)

Remote Sensing

Remote Sensing

ASL helps you implement science-based solutions tailored to your mapping and monitoring requirements. With over 35 years of global experience across a wide array of projects, our Remote Sensing scientists are able to build the knowledge base needed to make informed decisions. (more ...)

Data Management

Data Management

A web-based marine geoportal from which your ice, meteorological, oceanographic, and seabed data can be integrated and accessed. The geoportal is a collaborative tool that allows multiple users to interact with the system. (more ...)
