CEN researcher Isabelle Laurion’s work is featured on NSERC’s dashboard. Dr. Laurion, professor at the Centre Eau Terre Environnement at INRS, and her team study lakes created by permafrost thawing in the Canadian Arctic. Her research allows her to evaluate the relative importance of the combined effects of the geomorphological, limnological and hydrological properties of aquatic ecosystems on greenhouse gas emissions originating from permafrost thaw. The results emanating from her research will allow a better understanding of these emissions which represent a mechanism for enhancing the positive feedback loop contributing to the acceleration of climate change.
