|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.

|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.

|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.
|Climate Change Adaptation Project - Permafrost Thaw and River Erosion in Kugluk Territorial Park||05-10-2018||
The Kugluk Territorial Parks Project is a Climate Change Adaptation project by the Climate Change Secretariat in partnership with Nunavut Parks and Special Places. This project addresses the impacts of climate change being experienced in the Kugluk Territorial Park with an end goal of adapting to those environmental changes.
