This scientific event will include a roundtable discussion on the sustainable health of Indigenous and northern populations, enlightening discussions on caribou management and conservation, and the grand return of our science popularization contest My Northern Project.
See you on May 10, 2022 at the Musée de la civilisation for a day and an evening dedicated to the North and the Arctic.
The Polar Code for navigating in ice
This month, science reporterValérie Levée looks at the work of INQ-affiliated researcher Kristin Bartenstein.
“Navigation in ice poses many risks not only for the safety of the crew and cargo, but also for polar ecosystems. However, before 2017, there were no international regulationsfor navigation in ice-covered waters. In 2017, the Polar Code partially filled this gap. States must therefore incorporate this Code into their own legislation. Kristin Bartenstein, a professor in the Faculty of Law at Université Laval, received a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) to study the impact of the Polar Code on Canadian law.”
Symposium - 203 | Production et utilisation durables de l’énergie dans le Nord : observations, solutions, enjeux et défis pour toutes les disciplines
On May 12, 2022, INQ invites you to attend this scientific symposium held in conjunction with the 89th edition of Acfas conference that highlights the work of several members of INQ's New and Renewable Energy Working Group.
Please note that this event is online and you must be registered for the Acfas conference to attend. The event is held in French.
The Arctic in the Anthropocene: emerging research questions
The Arctic in the Anthropocene: emerging research questions is a report written to elaborate on many of the emerging issues in response to the significant environmental changes taking place in the Arctic.
Oriented towards northern earth and environmental science research, this book addresses diverse issues such as the future influence of communities on their land, or primary production in the context of declining ocean ice covers.
Are you interested in the various issues related to primary production? LAB-O-NORD presents the Turner Designs 10-AU fluorimeter from the Quebec-Ocean’s marine optics laboratory.
The #1 instrument in oceanography for several years, it is specially designed for the quantification of chlorophyll extracted from samples. Portable and robust, it can be deployed for continuous analysis or for discrete sampling.
