The Polar View Community Ice Service combines technology, including satellite data, with local knowledge to create ice information that is useful to northern communities.
The website and an Android phone app can be accessed here.
The service has been developed with the assistance of the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service and the Canadian Space Agency.
Under funding from The Nunavut Research Institute (NRI) and Irving Shipbuilding Inc., the Enhanced Capacity for Oil Spill Situational Awareness and Response in Nunavut (ECOSAR) project aims to build local capacity for oil spill monitoring and response in Nunavut.
