A party of 18 people of all ages spent five days together on the land to share their mutual knowledge and to come together around the themes of northern plants, climate change and environmental sciences. The group included four Elders, four Youth, and seven field assistants from Whapmagoostui, two researchers from the Centre d'études nordiques and a filmmaker from Wapikoni mobile.

« Live science from the North » by Alexandre Truchon-Savard, 2013 (12 min)

Watch this beautiful video of summer research life on Bylot Island, Nunavut by Andréanne Beardsell, M.Sc. student member at CEN under the co-supervision of Daniel Fortier.

Bylot Island is an ecological hotspot in the Canadian arctic due to its rich pergiglacial landscape which support a myriad of wetlands used as nesting ground by migratory birds. Andréanne studies the impact of permafrost degradation and climate change-related geomorphological hazards on the nesting habitat of the rough-legged hawk predator.

« Joël Bêty, passionate researcher  » by Brite Pauchetand Guy Lavigeur, 2012 (6 min 34)

Among their studies, arctic ecosystems biologist Joël Bêty and his team are curious about the migration of snow geese, the predatory behavior and movement of arctic fox, and the impact of climate change on Arctic birds. Their "laboratory" stretches from Bylot Island to Rimouski, where journalists found them busy preparing for their new mission.

« The North at heart » produced by Serge Giguère, 2012 (1 h 48)


In this movie, Serge Giguère presents Louis-Edmond Hamelin, founder and honorary member of CEN as a unique and lovable character, who invented the concept of nordicity and became a great defender of autochthony.


« Paleoceanographic reconstructions in Nunatsiavut fjords by Thomas Richerol, 2012 (1 min 17)


CEN PhD student Thomas Richerol was awarded the Editor's prize for the Frostbyte he presented at the IPY 2012 Conference among 200 submissions. As part of the IPY Conference, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) invited everyone to catch Frostbytes - short abstracts of research recorded as an audio file, slideshow or video which shared information about their research and aimed to attract delegates to their poster or oral presentation.

Thomas Richerol uses sedimentary sequences to assess the impact of natural and anthropogenic disturbances in three fjord ecosystems of Labrador, Canada.
