We are very excited to announce the launch of the 2017 CANDAC Student-Researchers Atmospheric Collaboration Program in Iqaluit. In February we will be visiting Inuksuk High School, where students in the Experiential Science Program will be taking daily solar radiation and aerosol optical thickness (AOT) measurements using a pyranometer and a sun photometer.

We will also be visiting grade 4 and 5 students at Joamie Elementary School, who will be making daily temperature and wind measurements with thermometers, anemometers, and wind socks.
For more information on the instruments the student-researchers will be using, please visit our Instruments section. 

Stay tuned for more program updates as we get closer to our visit!
