White Glacier is a 14 km long alpine glacier located on Axel Heiberg Island in the northwest part of Nunavut.

Search and Rescue in Nunavut 08-09-2016

This research looks at the causes of search and rescue (SAR) and more broadly unintentional injuries on the land in Nunavut.

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.

Irregular flow of surge-type glaciers 11-16-2015

Project title: Irregular flow of surge-type glaciers

Incorporating Climate Change into Land Development 08-31-2016

Permafrost vulnerability maps were developed for seven communities. These maps are useful for people who are making decisions about where and how to put infrastructure in Nunavut communities, and gives us more information around current conditions.

How to evaluate climate change adaptation in a permafrost environment: A pilot study in Arviat, Nunavut 10-04-2016

This research created a community-based evaluation framework to monitor and evaluate adaptation projects. Evaluating these projects can help us to learn from and improve projects. The framework was tested in Arviat on the ‘Terrain Analysis in Nunavut’ project, a Government of Nunavut project using satellite radar images to see if the ground is moving to detect permafrost degradation.

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.

Glacier Monitoring and Assessment, Penny Ice Cap, Nunavut 09-16-2015

In order to better understand past and future changes of glaciers in the southern Canadian Arctic, the Geological Survey of Canada, Parks Canada and University of Ottawa have been studying Penny Ice Cap on southern Baffin Island since 2007

Evaluation Adaptation to Climate Change in Nunavut, Canada 04-28-2015

This three part project started in fall 2014 assesses the current state of government-driven adaptation in Nunavut, including linkages, barriers, a

Community adaptation in a changing Arctic 04-09-2013
