Abstract of the presentation

The Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR) western Inuit Nunangat is among the most rapidly warming regions of the Earth. Consequences of climate warming observed across the ISR are the presence of more and taller shrubs, the northward expansion of beaver populations, and more frequent and intense wildfires. Thus, continued climate warming will fundamentally change the terrestrial-aquatic landscapes of the ISR. In this presentation I will provide an overview over various interdisciplinary projects aiming to shed light on how tall shrub encroachment, and intensifying fire and beaver activity affect the regional terrestrial-aquatic landscape north of Inuvik, NT. Collectively, these projects engage Inuvialuit partners from Inuvik in studying the ecosystem consequences of vegetation changes using geospatial technologies in combination with micrometeorological and chamber techniques. Building local capacity is a prerequisite for continued climate change monitoring to support the people of the ISR to adapt to climate change impacts occurring on their territory.
