ArcticNet Integrated Regional Impact Studies (IRIS) 03-16-2012

ArcticNet brings together scientists and managers with their partners from Inuit organizations, northern communities, federal and provincial agencies and the private sector to study the impacts of climate change in the coastal Canadian Arctic.

Climate Change Adaptation for Nunavut Decision Makers Course 03-27-2015

This course informs government staff of climate change impacts and how to incorporate climate change into deision-making across all government sectors.

Climate Communication and Adaptation: Engaging Maritime Publics 02-17-2017

This research on climate change communication compares maritime communities in diverse climate zones to identify differences and similarities in local perceptions of climate change and global climate action, and associated effects on local participation in environmental management.

Effects of climate change on the Arctic wildlife 04-09-2013

Many northern ecosystems are undergoing major shifts related to climate change.

Frobisher Bay Long-term Ecology and Habitat Mapping Study 11-14-2016

Frobisher Bay is undergoing rapid anthropogenic and climatic change. 

Frobisher Bay Long-term Ecology and Habitat Mapping Study 11-14-2016

Frobisher Bay is undergoing rapid anthropogenic and climatic change. 

How does climate change and vegetation growth affect snow properties and permafrost temperature? 04-07-2015

The properties of snow on the ground change over time and these changes are affected by temperature and wind, i.e. climate. Lemmings live under the snow and need to travel under the snow in search of food in winter. They are therefore sensitive to snow properties and climate change may strongly affect their populations, and of course also the populations of their predators.

Impact of climate change on the life of the Arctic Ocean floor 03-06-2012

Climate warming is driving a rapid transformation of polar ecosystems, and we urgently need to study the vulnerability of seafloor biodiversity to changes that are already underway.

Impacts of climate change for the marine Arctic 03-06-2012

Some implications of climate change for the marine Arctic ecosystem are fairly intuitive. For instance, polar bears and ringed seals are bound to be negatively impacted by the loss of ice that provides the physical platform for their hunting and reproduction. Other consequences are less obvious.

Linking changes in the Arctic marine ecosystem to the provisioning of ecosystem services and Inuit wellbeing 02-16-2015

Climate change pressures, such as warmer temperatures and sea ice decline, transform the Arctic marine ecosystem and could lead to major shifts in its functioning. This study will combine diverse but complementary methods to study the Arctic marine ecosystem and itsinterconnectedness with Inuit communities in the context of a changing Arctic.
