Project Titlesort descending Post Date Summary
Pan-Territorial Adaptation Initiatives 02-17-2012

Addressing climate change and identifying approaches for supporting current and future climate change adaptation projects across the Canadian Arctic.

Past and present changes to the ocean and sea-ice in the Arctic Archipelago 03-06-2012

The goal of this project is to provide the modelling framework for future impact studies on the Canadian Arctic Archipelago’s pack ice, oceanography and marine food web.

Research on Arctic marine mammals 03-06-2012

Research on Arctic marine mammals via the collection of detailed empirical information throughout Canadian Arctic marine ecosystems, using a variety of methods including both scientific and local knowledge.

Sea Ice of the Arctic 03-06-2012

This project brings together key sea ice researchers to examine the processes that cause the observed changes in sea ice dynamic and thermodynamic processes, snow cover, and physical coupling across the ocean-sea ice-atmosphere (OSA) interface.

Snowmelt project 05-22-2015

Metal loading and retention in Arctic tundra lakes during spring runoff

The People, Animals, Water and Sustenance Program 07-28-2016

The People, Animals, Water, and Sustenance (PAWS) Project is interested in gaining a better understanding of the relationships Iqaluit Inuit have with dogs, water, and food. Currently there are gaps in our understanding of the interactions between dogs, water, and food in a Northern context. In-depth interviews on these topics coupled with sampling of dog feces, water, and clams will help us understand how these relationships interact together and how these relationships may be changing.

Water, mud, and bubbles: Impacts of permafrost degradation on greenhouse gas emissions from Arctic ponds and lakes 12-14-2015

Carbon cycle dynamics in response to permafrost degradation is a ‘hot topic’ in northern research.
