Understanding Arctic aerosols and their climatic impacts

Date and location

Thursday, August 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Canadian High Arctic Research Station (CHARS).

Continuous shuttle between CHARS and the high school starting at 6:15 PM


The Arctic is warming at a rate 3—4 times faster than the rest of the globe. What changes are you seeing around you?

Increases in loss of sea ice and changes in the amount of sunlight reflected by the Earth's surface contribute to complex feedback mechanisms, leading to Arctic amplification of surface temperature rise and warming. Aerosols (tiny solid particles) play a crucial role in changing the climate of the Arctic.

Come and share Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit and local knowledge to enhance our collective knowledge of climate change impacts and the effects of Arctic atmospheric particles.

Talks will feature:

  • Dr. Rohit Srivastava, Scientist, National Centre for Polar and Ocean Research (NCPOR), Goa, India

Participating research Institution(s) or Organization(s)

  • Polar Knowledge Canada
  • National Centre for Polar and Ocean Research (NCPOR), India
