Climate Change monitoring and training being undertaken at Tshikapisk facility at Kamestastin
Posted 19 October 2007, 9:42 am NDT
In early October Tshikapisk welcomed Dr John Jacobs and post graduate student Andrew Trant to Kamestastin. Dr Jacobs is director of the Labrador Highlands Project of Memorial University's geography department, an initiative researching climate change indicators at the fringe between tundra and boreal forest. John Jacobs held several sessions of field training at Kamestastin with Innu Nation Environmental guardians Hank Rich and Sebastien Piwas. Dr Jacobs and Andrew Trant also reconnoitred the area as a candidate location for a new climate change monitoring site, and installed an unmanned device to record daily temperatures and humidity at Kamestastin.
