Many northern ecosystems are undergoing major shifts related to climate change.
|Community adaptation in a changing Arctic||IQ, Landscape, Permafrost, Sea Ice & Ice||04-09-2013||
Communities across the Canadian Arctic are exposed and sensitive to changes in social, political, cultural environmental and economic
|ArcticNet Integrated Regional Impact Studies (IRIS)||Animals, Aquatic Environment, Energy, Food Security, Health & Disease, Heritage, IQ, Landscape, Permafrost, Plants, Resource Development, Sea Ice & Ice, Sea Level, Security & Safety, Temperature, Terrestrial Environment, Tourism, Traditional Activities, Transportation, Watershed, Weather & Precipitation||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.
|Cape Bounty Arctic Watershed Observatory (CBAWO), Melville Island||Aquatic Environment, Watershed||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.
|Sea Ice of the Arctic||Aquatic Environment, Sea Ice & Ice||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.
|Past and present changes to the ocean and sea-ice in the Arctic Archipelago||Aquatic Environment, Sea Ice & Ice, Sea Level||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.
|Climate change and commercial shipping development in the Arctic||Resource Development, Transportation||03-06-2012||
To what extent will shipping develop in the Northwest and Northeast Passages, and with what kind of shipping: will it be transit shipping, fishing, tourism, transportation induced by natural resources mining?
