The multi-corer is an instrument designed to collect sediments in the seafloor. It is equipped with eight arms, each 1m in length, and provides several surface sediment cores in a single deployment of the instrument.

First climate sentinel installed for our Adaptable Earth Observation System project. It is located at the Gault natural reserve, next to the new building EOS / Gault lab.

This climate sentinel is equipped with solar panels to reduce the amount of electricity used. It is equipped with a very complete sets of sensors and will send the data to our servers located in the Burnside building.

Seasonal Ice Mass Balance Buoy (SIMB) deployed on landfast sea ice near Nain. The SIMB is equipped with top and bottom acoustic sonars to detect the snow surface and the bottom of the sea ice layer.

This project is a collaboration between the Canadian Ice Service (Adrienne Tivy), McGill University (Bruno Tremblay) and the Nain Research Center (Joey Angnatok). Photo Credit: Charles Brunette, AOS PhD Student.

Research

Research at our department is organised into four themes. Our four themes span a broad range of research topics canvassing topics in the study of weather and weather forecasting as well as pressing current environmental and climate issues. Many faculty members work covers more than one theme, encouraging cross-disciplinary collaboration. Click on links provided below to find out more.
