Scientific News scientifique | A pool heated with a geothermal system in Kuujjuaq
There is something counter-intuitive about the idea of heating a pool with geothermal energy in a region as cold as Nunavik and lacking in hot springs. However, it is becoming a reality in Kuujjuaq.
In Nunavik, as elsewhere, there is no need for hot springs to exploit the geothermal potential of the ground to heat a building or a pool. It is a matter of sending a heat-transfer fluid into the ground at a lower temperature than that of the ground to extract heat. More precisely, the fluid circulates in a geothermal loop that captures the heat of the ground.
Call for proposals | Northern Collaborative Lexicon
Students are invited to submit a digital project to be included in the Northern Collaborative Lexicon.
This lexicon, dedicated to the North and the Arctic, will be composed of concise digital content defining in simple terms words or concepts generally known to the general public, but applied to northern regions.
MOOC | Northern Quebec: Issues, Spaces and Cultures
There is still time to register for this training, but do it quickly as the training started on October 4th. Free and 100% online.
This course offers an introduction to sociopolitical issues of Northern Quebec, the ancestral territory of many Indigenous peoples. This course focuses on the understanding of northern community cultures, the place of these lands in our collective psyche, and the different perspectives of territorial development and sociopolitical evolution.
This call aims to address the challenge of integrated marine incident management in the vast territory of Northern Quebec and Nunavik. It calls on researchers from complementary disciplinary fields to come together to reflect on an innovative project partnership that will enhance the value of the research already conducted - or in the process of being conducted - in this region of the province.
