Earth to Sky - Canada, Climate Change Science and Communication Course in Yellowknife, NWT recently completed
April 19-21, 2017
This course focused on climate science and communication as it applies to NW Canada. The heart of the course consisted of three days of face-to-face sessions held at the Explorer Hotel in Yellowknife.
Scientists from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, several Universities, and the Gov't of the Northwest Territories presented sessions on topics ranging from carbon fluxes in permafrost, and hydrologic changes to NWT rivers, to the effects of climate change on migratory birds. The course included a field trip and tour of the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Center, where participants experienced a wide range of habitats representing the Arctic, and learned about how the changing climate is contributing to the loss of heritage resources. Representatives from local utilities and planning organizations provided information on climate mitigation efforts.
The course preparatory assignments, video-taped presentations and all course materials are now available on the course home page. Additional regional courses are being planned for a variety of locations in coming months and years.
