Monitoring Weather in Tallurutiup Imanga (149422)
Proposal Status: Conformity Determination Issued
Project Overview
Type of application: Amendment
Proponent name: Amanda Joynt
Company: Oceans North
Schedule:
Start Date: 2021-06-01
End Date: 2024-09-30
Operation Type: Annual
Project Description:
Project objectives: •An expansion of our current monitoring in this region will include the installation of an autonomous weather/camera station on land near the Eclipse Sound floe edge (we previously had a camera only at this site). This system will collect data on temperature, wind speed, wind direction, humidity and atmospheric pressure as well as photos. This information, combined with the acoustic data, will help build an understanding of the relationship between ice break up, climate change and increased industrial shipping on narwhal habitat. This project will have the added benefit of supporting Inuit hunters and community members with safe travel. Summary of activities and rationale: •A maximum of 5 people will be on site to install a camera/weather system in a location where we previously had an autonomous camera system. This is will take a few hours in total. The system will operate independently and will only need to be visited if there is an issue with transmission of data back to the community. Project location: •Bylot Island Migratory Bird Sanctuary – Cape Graham Moore
Summary of Modifications:
Due to COVID-19, changed start dates from 2020 to 2021. The length and nature of the project has not changed, but has been bumped to 2021.

Autonomous weather station/camera 1 2m2 The installation of an autonomous weather/camera station on land near the Eclipse Sound floe edge (we previously had a camera only at this site). This system will collect data on temperature, wind speed, wind direction, humidity and atmospheric pressure as well as photos. This information, combined with the acoustic data, will help build an understanding of the relationship between ice break up, climate change and increased industrial shipping on narwhal habitat.
Camera 1 1m2 The Camera will be attached to the weather station. This will record breakup, among other weather changes. The goal is to provide real time access to weather conditions providing a benefit of supporting Inuit hunters and community members with safe travel. Real time access will be dependent on connectivity.
snow machines 5 5m2 Up to 5 people (includng 2 community members) will access the site to install the station and camera
