Diaries from the field

At the end of the 4th Takuvik expedition to the Mackenzie Delta, Bennet Juhls (AWI) and I were asked by the Peel River team to repeat water sampling from the creeks along the Dempster Highway between Inuvik and Dawson City. Without much hesitation we agreed to do the job – who would say no to the opportunity to drive this legendary route...

One of the fundamental goals of conducting science is to be able to communicate it to others. As scientists, we are not always effective communicators, especially when addressing non-peers. The challenge is sometimes even greater when it comes to capturing children’s attention with subject matters that, at first glance, seem very complex...

Everything is packed. The truck is fully loaded with our equipment meant for complete autonomy during several days. Bennet and I are gearing up as the temperatures are dropping close to 0oC in the Delta.

Welcome to Tuk, the “Land of the pingos”!

The team of the University of Lisbon (Gonçalo Vieira, Pedro Pina, Pedro Freitas and Daniel Pinheiro) and Natural Resources Canada (Dustin Whalen, Angus Robertson and Paul Fraser) has been in the field in June – August 2019 to conduct surveys of coastal...

The fieldwork of WP 1 at Komakuk Beach (Ivvavik National Park, Yukon Territory, CA) has been successful. We collected more than 400 soil samples, vegetation, root and water samples.

After our (myself Natalia Doloisio and Jean Paul Vanderlinden) scoping fieldwork to Yakutsk in June, Magali Vullierme, Mateo Cordier and I from the CEARC Laboratory (France), came back to the Sakha Republic (Russia) to continue our research. This time, we spent our first five days in the capital city, Yakutsk, working with...

On Highway 10 from Inuvik to Tuktoyaktuk, Guislain, Édouard and Joannie drive on the newly opened road built on the permafrost. The ride is beautiful, spanning a vegetation gradient from the boreal forest to the arctic tundra. Closer to Tuktoyaktuk, we enter the Pingo National Landmark area, where 8 mounds...
