High Impact Publications Program
With one ocean, a 35000-island archipelago, Baffin Bay, and Hudson Bay, the sea plays a pivotal role in the subsistence economy and culture of the Canadian Arctic. Projects corresponding to this aim to better understand the reponse of marine systems and ecosystems to the pressures of climate change and modernization.
