The “Permafrost Days 2023” gathered together scientists with local stakeholders in NWT, Canada to discuss the relevance and applicability of scientific results in communities.
Field work in Ilulissat, Greenland continues in close collaboration with the community.
The second leg of the expedition starts with the island flooded and wind gusts up to 65km/h. However, Grizzly and seal sightings make up for it!
At the end of the 2nd week of the Yukon22 expedition, the team woke up to a new sound: waves rolling onto the shore!
Recap of a surprising week of the Yukon22 expedition on Herschel Island (Qikiqtaruk) still locked in an icy embrace while the sun never sets.
Multidisciplinary group of Nunataryuk researchers headed to Ilulissat Greenland in September to conduct the long waited field work.
Sixteen hours of daylight. This was the beginning of our trip. We have now arrived at about nine hours.
It took us seven days to reach our first station. We are interested in carbon, sediment and nutrient dynamics on the Beaufort Shelf. That’s why we needed to wait a bit until we finally went to where the Northwest Passage ends.
Since 09 September we are at sea. A charter flight with about 35 crew members and the same number of scientists brought us from Québec City to Resolute Bay on Cornwallis Island in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.
It is not easy to tell you how many we are - I have not even tried to count. Since more than three years we work on this project and it will take even longer to work on all the data and samples we will bring back to our labs and offices and to our partners all over the world.
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.
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.
