In the Pinetree Radar Line construction commenced as a joint Canada - USA project consisting of a series of more than 30 radars located roughly along the U.S.-Canadian border. Entering service in , the radar stations were fully manual air defence systems with both aircraft control and early warning functions. The construction of air bases and the Distant Early Warning Line in the s and s brought more intensive contacts with European society, particularly in the form of public education for children. The traditionalists complained that Canadian education promoted foreign values that were disdainful of the traditional structure and culture of.

The resultant Distant Early Warning Line (DEW Line) was to monitor the Arctic airspace and deter and provide advance notice of potential attacks. Despite similar Cold War outlooks, negotiations between Washington and Ottawa over the construction and the operation of the DEW Line increasingly produced resentments and concerns on the part of. When the Canadian and U.S. governments set up the Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line in late s to detect incoming Soviet bombers and missiles, the .

The group came to the conclusion that the construction of an improved air defense system was urgent and feasable. Overturning Project Charles' assessment, the Lincoln Summer Study Group recommended the construction of distant early warning lines in the Canadian Arctic and affirmed the feasability thereof.

The Distant Early Warning Line, also known as the DEW Line or Early Warning Line, was a system of radar stations in the far northern Arctic region of Canada, with additional stations along the North Coast and Aleutian Islands of Alaska, in addition to the Faroe Islands, Greenland. Of the numerous Cold War Arctic initiatives, none was more significant than the Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line.

A triumph of scientific design and logistical planning completed in the late s, the DEW Line was a string of continental defence radars, ultimately stretching from Alaska to Size: 1MB.

The DEW Line was coordinated with several similar radar detection networks, such as the Pinetree Early Warning Line (which spanned the width of southern Canada near the 49th parallel), the Mid-Canada Line (which spanned the width of Canada at the 55th parallel), and the U.S.

Navy ’s Atlantic and Pacific Barrier, as well as air and sea patrols and radar stations in Iceland. The Distant Early Warning Line, or DEW Line, was a series of radar stations across the arctic, from Alaska through Canada over Greenland to Iceland.

The Americans conceived that the DEW line could detect enemy bombers coming over the North Pole. In Decemberconstruction began on the Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line, an integrated chain of 63 radar and communication centres stretching miles from Western Alaska across the Canadian Arctic to Greenland.

1 This predominantly-American defence project, designed to detect Russian bomber incursions into North American airspace, was the largest technological undertaking the Canadian Arctic. Abstract: The Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) is cleaning up and remediating environmental hazards at former Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line sites located across the Canadian Arctic.

The DEW Line Clean-Up proof of concept project is underway, to determine if space-based Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data can be used for landfill monitoring at these DEW Line sites. The DEWLine | The Distant Early Warning Radar Line DEWLine Sites in Canada, Alaska & Greenland A tribute site to those who served on the coldest part of the Cold War, the Distant Early Warning Radar Line.

“Sed evanescent voces scripta manent”. The 47 North Warning System sites were constructed between andreplacing another set of radars, the Distant Early Warning Line, that had been built in the s.

At the time, the radars. On uninhabited islands and in settled communities are the remains of abandoned Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line radar stations, created during the Cold War to detect a Soviet nuclear strike. After the end of the Cold War, the sites, full of lead, PCBs and other contaminants, ultimately left more than a hundred landfills across the Arctic.

DYE-2 is one of nearly 60 radar sites set up during the Cold War as part of an early-warning detection system that stretched across the far north of. The most northerly of the networks, the Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line of radar sites, was established in the late s and extended along the Arctic coastline (roughly along the 69th parallel) from northwestern Alaska to Iceland.

The DEW Line was planned, built and largely funded by the United States according to an international agreement. The Northern Review 42 (): 23–45During the Cold War, the United States and Canada embarked on an ambitious military construction project in the Arctic to protect North America from a northern Soviet attack.

Comprised of sixty-three stations stretching across Alaska, Canada’s Arctic, Greenland, and Iceland, the Distant Early Warning (DEW) Line constitutes both the. The DEWLine was a chain of 57 manned, early warning radar stations that stretched across the northern part of the North American continent from Alaska to Greenland, roughly along the 69 th parallel, about to kilometers north of the Arctic Circle.

There were six Main stations, 23 Auxiliary stations, and 28 Intermediate stations. Patrol leader Master Corporal Tommy Aiyout surveys a deactivated Distant Early Warning Line site—one of several radar stations established along the Arctic coastline during the Cold War.

In the summer ofI returned to the Arctic, this time as a photo­grapher, and spent two weeks with the Rangers. The North Warning System sites were constructed between andreplacing the Distant Early Warning Line that had been built in the s. The North Warning System radar chain spans Canada’s northern coastline, across the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and.

The North Warning System is made up of 47 unmanned long and short-range radar stations running from Labrador to Alaska.

Init replaced the DEW Line, or Distant Early Warning line. Cape Mercy was named by British explorer John Davis, who sailed through this part of the Arctic in Fast-forward several centuries to the s when Cape Mercy was chosen as the site of a Distant Early Warning Line installation, which was part of a system of radar stations set up during the Cold War to detect incoming Soviet bombers.

Arctic architectures - Volume 52 Issue 4 - Peter Hemmersam. Inthe British/Swedish architect Ralph Erskine published an article ‘Architecture and town planning in the north’ in this journal, in which he called for a particular Arctic approach to the design of buildings and cities that is distinct from mainstream architecture due to conditions such as harsh.

Right now, air surveillance for potential threats is limited by the capability of the distant early warning (DEW) line, put in place during the Cold War and decommissioned in the late s. The subject of their study was the vulnerability of the US and Canada to air attack, and their recommendation was that a Distant Early Warning line be built across our Arctic border as rapidly as possible, The Secretary of Defense asked the President of AT&T if the Bell System would undertake the job of building the line.

Climate Change In The Canadian Arctic - Mosquitoes are finding their way to the Arctic Circle. And robins are being sighted in Canada's Northwest Territories. Scientists believe the presence of.Hall Beach is the oldest known inhabited community north of the Arctic Circle, it was established in as a Distant Early Warning site line station site to help monitor Canadian air space in the Far North.

Although the original system is no longer operational, there is now a more technologically advanced warning system site in the community.

The Distant Early Warning of DEW line sites of the s are now being cleaned up in northern Canada. The site at Cape Dyer on the east coast of Baffin Island is one of the two remaining sites.
