Arctic Search and Rescue Strengths and Opportunities

I am working with Nunavut communities and the Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre to assess search and rescue gaps and opportunities for communities across Nunavut. We are exploring potential uses for UAVs in hazard identification and SAR, as well as other community-centered avenues to prevent incidents and improve response.

To better understand how changing climatic conditions may impact Inuit harvesters and travelers, we are assessing what ice and weather trends have been over the past 40 years in numerous communities across the Canadian Arctic. Using historical daily observations of conditions, we use hypothetical scenarios to understand potential impacts to travel on the land, water, and ice.
