Polar Knowledge: Aqhaliat Report

Polar Knowledge: Aqhaliat Report is an online, open-access report published annually by Polar Knowledge Canada (POLAR). It disseminates and promotes awareness of new knowledge generated by POLAR and its Canadian and international partners over the previous year. Polar Knowledge: Aqhaliat Report presents results from the following:

  • Scientific and technological research led or supported by POLAR;
  • projects that mobilize research results to support decision-making; and
  • outreach, engagement, and capacity-building efforts related to research

The word aqhaliat is the Inuinnaqtun term for the northern lights, i.e. aurora, which are an important cultural symbol connecting Indigenous peoples throughout the circumpolar regions. Auroras occur at both poles, encompassing the Arctic and Antarctic bearings of POLAR’s mandate.
