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 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.
