PHASE 4 (2015-2019)

PHASE 4 (2015-2019)

During Phase 4 of ArcticNet, the Network’s 41 research projects focused on five main themes: marine systems; terrestrial systems; Inuit health, education and adaptation; northern policy and development and knowledge transfer. These projects contributed to four Integrated Regional Impact Studies (IRISes), each corresponding to one of the main political-physiographic-oceanographic regions of the coastal Canadian Arctic.
