|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.

|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
|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.
|Instability of coastal landscapes in Arctic communities and regions||03-06-2012||
Seasonal changes in the northern landscape, together with extreme weather events, can create instability and hazards, including flooding, landslides, thaw failure and subsidence, coastal ice push, storm surges, and coastal erosion. Our project team is measuring both the drivers of change and the effects of instability in community landscapes at selected sites across the Arctic.
