Preparing for Arctic Marine Challenges

Dr. Brent Else
University of Calgary

How can we prepare for changes in Arctic waters? How can we prepare for a northern oil spill?

Canada’s Arctic presents a formidable challenge to marine environmental observation, predication, and response. Dr. Else and his team will work with community members from Cambridge Bay, Nunavut to study the vulnerability of marine ecosystems to external pressures from industry, oil spills, ocean acidification and other impacts. This data will be used to develop response plans to prepare at risk areas to react to threats as they occur including a plan to mitigate oil spill events, and identifying locations vulnerable to ocean acidification.
