Expedition supports science and health


The Science Team of the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen continues its mission through October as it completes its final year of the ArcticNet study.

In addition to supporting ArcticNet’s annual marine-based research program, the expedition also hosts:

  • the second edition of the Nunavik Inuit Health Survey;
  • the Sentinel North’s BriGHT project (Bridging Global change, Inuit Health and the Transforming Arctic Ocean);
  • the Kitikmeot Marine Region project; and
  • the Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Marine Protected Areas Program, with operations  conducted in the Labrador Sea to acquire baseline data on the biodiversity and  productivity of this ecosystem.

The results of these research projects and many others will be presented this year at the International Arctic Change Conference hosted by ArcticNet in Quebec City December 11 to 15.
