A Summary of MethylMercury and Climate Change Research in Nunavut 06-27-2016

Mercury (Hg) is a toxic heavy metal that changes into various chemical forms through geochemical processes. It is an element that occurs naturally in the environment but with industrialization, humans have altered its cycle by adding more mercury in the water, air, and soil.

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.

Building Capacity to Monitor the Risk of Climate Change on Water Quality and Human Health: A Two Year Journey Expanding Community-Based Leadership in Pond Inlet 01-06-2016

A community project in Pond Inlet. We are a group of 3 young Mittimatalirmiut and we wish to research water quality and develop more skills in research! Access to healthy water is of paramount importance for Mittimatalirmiut. Water is important to keep us alive, sturdy and healthy; and bad water can be harmful for our people- our beloved elders, youth and infants. Water also an important cultural value to our people since many of us are going out on the land in order to provide our family with fresh water, just as our elders used to and they proudly taught us.

Cape Bounty Arctic Watershed Observatory (CBAWO), Melville Island 03-06-2012

To determine the impacts of climate change on terrestrial ecosystems and freshwater quality and availability in the High Arctic, we created a water-shed and landscape ecosystem observation network. 

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.

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

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.
