Community workshop on permafrost and landscape change, Rankin Inlet, Nunavut: M183-2/8057E-PDF

"A community workshop on permafrost and landscape change was held in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut from February 1-3, 2016. The workshop consisted of an open house on permafrost research at Natural Resources Canada, educational outreach activities on climate change and permafrost, and a participatory mapping exercise for gathering local and traditional knowledge on permafrost and landscape change in the Rankin Inlet region. The mapping exercise documented observations of landscape features and landscape change that may be related to permafrost and permafrost processes. Observations shared during the participatory mapping exercise are presented as a series of maps keyed to a table of descriptions. Information gathered from the participatory mapping exercise will be interpreted in terms of permafrost conditions in the Rankin Inlet region and workshop results will be used to design and develop research activities and field operations within Natural Resources Canada"--Summary provided by publisher.
