The Arctic Snow School offers a high-level transdisciplinary training to better understand the dynamic processes of Arctic snow, its relationship with climate and wildlife, and its importance to northern communities in a changing North.
Hosted at the Canadian High Arctic Research Station in Iqaluktuuttiaq (Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, Canada), this field school aims to provide an advanced hands-on training to improve each participant's knowledge of dynamic and thermodynamic processes controlling snow cover and their relation to climate using state-of-the-art instruments and models. Exchange and roundtable discussions with Inuit community members will allow students to acknowledge the richness of traditional knowledge while acquiring a better understanding of the Inuit perspective on snow and how northern communities are confronted to issues arising from climate variability and change.
This school is a joint initiative of the Sentinel North program at Université Laval and the GRIMP laboratory at Université de Sherbrooke.
This school will be offered in English.
Graduate students and post-doctoral fellows from all disciplines with a strong interest in snow are invited to apply before January 15, 2023.
