Principal Investigator:Goelman, Nadav Licenced Year(s):
The goal of this project is to develop a roadmap of policy and programming to encourage labour force adaptation, and healthy community development in Nunavut with research objectives being to: 1) pinpoint areas of potential risk to regional communities from economic development; 2) delineate between programs and policy options that advance adaptation and those that mitigate the adverse side effect...

The long-term objectives of this project are:
1) to establish the foundation for health programs that proactively address climate change and reflect the holism of Dene stories; 2) to establish the foundation for more comprehensive climate change adaptation planning by Tulít’a that will be incorporated into local policy and decision-making; 3) to build relationships of mutual support between elder...
Principal Investigator:Ballantyne, J.S. Licenced Year(s):
The research will determine the kinds of fats of Arctic fish and invertebrates found in various parts of the body (blood, liver, kidney, muscle, brain) and how they change when the fish move from freshwater into seawater or when the temperature changes. The studies will determine how Arctic animals are different from similar animals found in warmer climates and how Arctic animals are adapted to Ar...

The researcher and his team will collect and identify arctic insects. Such studies should lead to a better understanding of food webs in Arctic ecosystems which are often regarded as fragile but complex, and could prove useful in monitoring more subtle effects on food chains brought about by disruption of the habitat by physical or chemical forces....
Principal Investigator:Curtis, Mark A. Licenced Year(s):
The research scientists and graduate students involved are primarily interested in three topics in the aquatic ecosystems of the Igloolik region: (1) the species compostion of marine phytoplankton; (2) the cold adaptation physiology of polar cod; (3) the parasites of arctic char....
Principal Investigator:Fahselt, D. Licenced Year(s):
The Researcher will compare the levels of enzyme variation from populations of umbilicate species from the Arctic as well as from the southern limit of their ranges in southeastern USA. The objective will be to ascertain whether there is any correlation between the level of variability in enzyme patterns and latitude....
Principal Investigator:Svoboda, Josef Licenced Year(s):199419931992
The Researcher will continue an ongoing program in Sverdrup Pass: Ecology of polar oases. The study will assist in understanding the origin, development, maintenance and future of these isolated ecosystems in the midst of a polar desert....
Principal Investigator:Kukal, Olga Licenced Year(s):1992
Arctic arthropod communities are extremely sensitive to changes in their physical environment and their composition reflects trace elements in the atmosphere or minor fluctuations in termperature. This project is part of a larger, long-term project involving a survey of arctic arthropods which will ultimately provide a monitoring system for global climatic changes and indicate levels of pollutants...
Principal Investigator:Graham, Mark Licenced Year(s):
The study will involve capturing freshwater char to use in laboratory experiments. The body temperature of fish is the same as the water they live in. Therefore, arctic fishes live their lives at or near the freezing mark. This work will investigate the mechanical functions of Arctic Char hearts: how powerful, how much blood they can pump and what is a reasonable maximum work load....
