Project Description:
The Multidisciplinary Observatory for Arctic Climate Change and Extreme Events Monitoring (MOACC)proposal is submitted by the Université de Sherbrooke (lead institution-UdeS), University of Toronto (UofT),Western University (WU) and Université de Montréal (UM). The main objective of our project is to developa permanent multidisciplinary scientific infrastructure that enables long-term observations of Arctic climatechange, bringing together experts from a wide range of expertise and institutions. The project is led by Prof.Alexandre Langlois (UdeS) and Prof. Kimberley Strong (UofT) and responds to a consensus on the lack oftemporal observations that are crucial to understand feedback processes and to promote model developmentin the Arctic. The innovative aspect of this proposal resides in its multidisciplinary approach while enablinglong-term Arctic measurements spanning several disciplines. The proposed observatory will be located at theCanadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS) in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, while enhancing the reach ofCHARS with linkages to the Environment and Climate Change Canada supersite in Iqaluit. Our ambition isto establish the site as one of the largest instrumented high Arctic observatories dedicated to the monitoringof key indicators that drive climate change. The site will generate and enhance partnerships, not only withCanadian research centers and organizations, but also with international research partners and networks.
