Queen’s Arctic Researchers ADAPT
Queen’s and ADAPT, (Arctic Development and Adaptation to Permafrost in Transition), the first of NSERC’s Discovery Frontiers Grants.
QIEEP Fellow, Scott Lamoureux (Geography) and fellow Queen’s researchers Paul Grogan (Biology) and Melissa LaFreniere (Geography) are part of a $4 million multi-institutional, cross-disciplinary ADAPT research team that will study the implications for Canada and the North of rapid environmental change, including thawing permafrost and changing snowfall. The ADAPT Project will use research sites spread out over a vast area of northern Canada, including sites in the Yukon, Labrador, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, both shores of Hudson’s Bay, Nunavik, and Nunatsiavut.
