Polar research in far north

Members of Japan’s National Institute of Polar Research (NIPR) held meetings at the Canadian High Arctic Research Station in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, to build relations with Canadian researchers and the Inuit community and explore the impact of global warming. According to an article published by the CBC on July 7, the NIPR’s goal was to share information about its current and future projects and find out from the local community what they think should be studied. Alain Leclair, director of science and technology at Polar Knowledge Canada, said he hopes the local community can share knowledge and help develop a general understanding of the changes that are occurring in the Arctic environment.
