SmartICE awarded prestigious Arctic Inspiration Prize!
SmartICE, led by Dr. Trevor Bell of MUN Geography, is one of three projects awarded the Arctic Inspiration Prize at the ArcticNET meeting in Winnipeg. SmartICE involves the cooperative efforts of a large team of Arctic residents and researchers, integrating Inuit Quajimajatuqangit traditional knowledge and ongoing observation for sea-ice monitoring and forecasting. In accepting the award, Trevor noted that “SmartICE will be a catalyst for a different way to do research in the North."
All of us look forward to continued progress in understanding the impacts of climate and environmental changes on sea ice, and recognize the importance of SmartICE as a model for future research partnerships with Arctic communities
Congratulations to all members and partners in the SmartICE team!”
