Arctic Environmental Monitoring Program
The Arctic is experiencing accelerating environmental change (ACIA 2005, Post et al. 2009, Wassman et al. 2011, Ford et al. 2012) due to global warming and increasing human activity.
Environmental monitoring programs are key to understanding interactions and feedback among the different components of the Arctic ecosystem (physical, biological, and human). These must be understood to inform programs and policy development (SEARCH 2005, Murray et al 2010, Perovich et al. 2012), as well as inform disaster management, resource exploration, and community development.
Natural Resources Canada’s mandate includes monitoring the Arctic through a network of weather stations. Counterpart organizations in other Arctic nations do the same. The result is a huge international network of disparate sensors, and a wealth of diverse sensor data.
