Lake and sea ice and their snow covers are major components of Earthâs cryosphere and act to strongly modify climatic and biological systems. Both ice types serve as an important habitat for micro-fauna and support macro-fauna and strongly modify the exchange of energy, gases, and momentum...
Abstract: An improved corer and associated equipment for obtaining continuous samples of frozen peat are described. We developed the system through laboratory and field trials-on Bathurst Island, Nunavut, Canada in 2000 and Nordvesto, Carey Islands, Greenland, in 2001-as part of efforts to...
As resource exploitation and development expands in northern Canada, threats to the ecological integrity of freshwater systems increase. In Canada, developments that could negatively affect aquatic ecosystems require offsetting or compensation measures. As a result of diamond mine development, a...
The Arctic Ocean sea ice is shifting from a system dominated by thick perennial ice (multiyear ice –MYI) to one dominated by thinner, seasonal ice (first year ice – FYI). The effects of this shift on the bacterial constituents of the Arctic sea ice have been grossly under studied, although it is...
Biogeochemical impacts of glacial meltwaters across a High Arctic watershed (Lake Hazen, Nunavut, Canada)Download
Climate change across northern latitudes is fundamentally altering the hydrological cycle there, resulting in increased glacial melt, permafrost thaw and precipitation. Whereas enhanced glacial melt has potentially important implications for water quality and productivity in downstream freshwater...
This qualitative single exploratory case study design, informed by Critical Social Theory (CST) (Habermas, 1982) and a participatory approach (Freire, 2000), explored how to build knowledge and capacity to support policy interventions that create conditions for healthy eating and active living in...
SSHRC IDG, awarded in 2018 jointly with Genomics Canada. The team has also included the SSHRC Notice of Decision, including ranking and evaluation information. The project seeks to address ethical and cultural challenges related to potential use of genomic data by generating information...
Dissolved Organic Carbon Mobilization and Degradation Patterns in Retrogressive Thaw Slumps of the Peel Plateau, Northwest Territories, CanadaDownload
Anthropogenic climate change has affected the Canadian Arctic cryosphere, accelerating the development of retrogressive thaw slumps (RTS) across the Peel Plateau, NWT, Canada. RTS result from the thawing of ice-rich permafrost and develop due to ablation of ground ice exposed in the slump...
Automatic weather monitoring stations deployed in arctic regions are usually installed in hard to reach locations. Most of the time they run unsupervised and they face severe environmental conditions: very low temperatures, ice riming, etc. It is usual practice to use a local energy source to...
