As part of ASP, the Department of Environment and Geography at the University of Manitoba will be offering this Arctic Science field course, entitled GEOG 7400 Field Topics in Arctic System. The focus of the 2015 field course is on Snow Covered Sea Ice.
It will bring together 15 graduate students with diverse backgrounds in Arctic science examining the role snow covered sea ice plays in the Arctic system. Through lectures, field activities, and interactions with the local community, the students will learn about various aspects of snow covered sea ice, including the physical, biological and social importance of it, as well as the methods to measure and study the micro- and macro-scale features. The field school also aims to engage the local communities by developing and implementing an outreach program for local students, and by including elders as instructors.
The course will be held 13-20 February 2015 in Nuuk, Greenland. More
