Field and modelling investigations of permafrost conditions in the Labrador region of northeastern Canada

Taking permafrost measurements in Labrador

This doctoral research project is focused on the distribution and characteristics of permafrost in Labrador. It’s important work because more data is sorely needed to understand how climate change is impacting permafrost in Northeastern Canada. This cutting-edge research project will produce maps of regional permafrost distribution for past, present and future climate scenarios by using a combination of field-based and modeling techniques applicable to northern Canada.
