ARI Summer Speaker Series August 8, 2019

July, 29 2019

The fifth summer series talk will be on Thursday, August 8th from 7-8 pm at the Aurora Research Institute in Inuvik. We have three speakers.

The first, Patrick Gall, is the Engineering & Technology Projects Technician at ARI. Patrick's talk, "Infrastructure Challenges with the Norman Wells Meteorological Tower," is sure to appeal to anyone interested in learning about the potential of clean energy in the NWT and particularly the challenges of installing infrastructure.

Our second guest speaker is William Halliday, an Associate Conservation Scientist with the Wildlife Conservation Society Canada and the Department of Biology, University of Victoria. Williams' talk, "Listening to Marine Animals and Ships in the Amundsen Gulf,' will give some insight into his research on how climate change and shipping impact marine wildlife, in particular the acoustic environment.

Our third speaker is Joannie Ferland, a research associated with the Takuvik Joint International Laboratory, Université Laval (Canada) - CNRS (France). Her talk, 'Satellite tracking Organic Matter in the Mackenzie Delta - Impact of Climate Change on Permafrost Thaw,' will discuss her research on tracking organic matter in the Mackenzie Delta and how satellites contribute important data.

Come out for an interesting evening and learn more about research in Inuvik. As always, there will be snacks and door prizes, and most importantly, you get a chance to learn more about science.
