Research and life at Bylot Island – Perpective by Andréanne Beardsell

January 21, 2014 in video by Godin.E

Watch this beautiful video of summer research life on Bylot Island, Nunavut by Andréanne Beardsell. Andréanne is a Geocryolab M.Sc. student member un der 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.
