ArcticNet Theme 1: Climate Change Impacts in the Canadian High Arctic: a Comparative Study along the East-West Gradient in Physical Conditions
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licenced Year(s): 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2007 2006 2005 2004
Summary: The objective of this research project is to start long-term marine observatories in order to study variability and change in the context of climate change in the Canadian Arctic. Six instrument moorings will be redeployed in the same locations as they w...


Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES)
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licenced Year(s): 2002
Summary: Given the possibility of a sustained reduction of the ice cover of Arctic shelves in response to climate warming, the Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES), a major international effort under Canadian leadership, aims at understanding the biogeoch...

From ice algae to sediments in the frozen arctic seas: the contribution of direct sedimentation and zooplankton grazing on the vertical flux of carbon
Principal Investigator: Fortier, Louis
Licenced Year(s): 1994
Summary: The researchers will be examining small marine organisms (algae, zooplankton and phytoplankton) to determine their influence on global warming. Carbon is necessary for the production of carbon dioxide (CO2), and increase levels of CO2 in the atmosphere can contribute to an increase in the earth's overall temperature. The study will examine how these small marine creatures can reduce carbon level...
