|Climate Communication and Adaptation: Engaging Maritime Publics||02-17-2017||
This research on climate change communication compares maritime communities in diverse climate zones to identify differences and similarities in local perceptions of climate change and global climate action, and associated effects on local participation in environmental management.
|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.
|Incorporating Climate Change into Land Development||08-31-2016||
The Nunavut Climate Change Centre is devoted to including Nunavut communities in their projects and outreach. Over the last few years, we have had
|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.
|Irregular flow of surge-type glaciers||11-16-2015||
Project title: Irregular flow of surge-type glaciers
|Assessing Berries to Monitor Ecological Change: a collaboration with Nunavut Arctic College's Environmental Technology Program||10-20-2015||
Students of ETP have been contributing to a multidisciplinary study looking at vegetation response in a warming Arctic context, with a focus on ber
|The response of White Glacier to Arctic Warming over the past 55 years||09-21-2015||
White Glacier is a 14 km long alpine glacier located on Axel Heiberg Island in the northwest part of Nunavut.
|Glacier Monitoring and Assessment, Penny Ice Cap, Nunavut||09-16-2015||
Higher than normal summer temperatures over the past few decades have resulted in increased melt of glaciers and ice caps in the Canadian Arctic, p
|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
|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.
