Project description

Changes in the seasonal sea-ice cycle and properties of the water masses have the potential to alter the services that sea-ice ecosystems maintain, notably as platform for seasonal travel and the procurement of harvestable food. The open position for a MSc (or PhD) project is embedded in the Nunatsiavut Coastal Interaction Project and aims at studying the Holocene response of the Nain coastal ecosystem (i.e., sea ice, storm frequency and intensity, primary production) to climate fluctuations. Data produced as part of this project will provide knowledge foundations to predict the impact of continued warming on sea-ice conditions and its effect on the provisioning and cultural services supported by the Nain coastal ecosystem.
