The researchers involved in the NSERC CREATE Training Program in Arctic Atmospheric Science have unique, interesting, fun, and adventurous stories to tell. This blog provides a place to share those stories. Not only will it provide a good way for us to share with each other, but with anyone interested in what we are doing up in the Arctic!
To give you an idea of where we travel for science, check out this photo I took last winter (03 March 2012) while taking atmospheric measurements near Eureka, Nunavut at the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Lab (PEARL):
My camera doesn’t quite do the scenery justice! Ellesmere Island is an incredible place, filled with fiords, ridges, and abundant wildlife in the summer. We will share more photos and stories in future posts.
Working up North is amazing. It is a huge part of Canada, and few people have the opportunity to spend time there. We look forward to sharing our experiences in the Arctic with you.
