After this summer on the tundra I was hooked on the Arctic!
Ecological Geography of the Sea
However, in continuing to a Ph. My doctoral research sought to characterize the local importance of sea ice processes, use, and change based on Inuit expertise, and in so doing to provide points of intersection with scientific sea ice monitoring and investigations. This research involved close collaborations with the Nunavut communities of Pangnirtung, Cape Dorset, and Igloolik beginning in and expanding into broader aspects of remote sensing, data management, and northern education through the International Polar Year until More recent project partnerships have evolved in Gjoa Haven, Nunavut with an emphasis on Elder-youth land camps to learn about caribou in the region — and in Makkovik, Nunatsiavut northern Labrador to learn about the reciprocal relationships of people and plants — With increasing national and international interest in the effects of climate change on arctic environments and people and related global climate feedbacks , political implications of circumpolar access and control, socio-economic challenges experienced in remote communities, and ongoing struggles for Aboriginal rights and cultural vitality, I am committed to undertaking research that addresses northern needs and interests through the coupling of social and environmental research.
I am also interested in exploring the utility and applicability of collaborative research approaches within a range of potential topics, to address local concerns in other Aboriginal or local expert groups in southern Canadian or even developing nation contexts.

Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book! This book presents an in-depth discussion of the biological and ecological geography of the oceans. It synthesizes locally restricted studies of the ocean to generate a global geography of the vast marine world. Based on patterns of algal ecology, the book divides the ocean into four primary compartments, which are then subdivided into secondary compartments.

Pre-Publication comments on the 2nd edition: "It has all the elements that made the first edition such a wonderful book to have and to read. There are too few books like this on the market, which build on a life-time's experience and knowledge in order to say something quite unique and challenging about the oceans. It will be useful for all of those involved with managing the world's oceans, providing for the only rigorous schematic framework available for exploring the heterogeity of the seas and its resources.
