Park Students Present at ArcticNet’s 11th Annual Scientific Meeting in Vancouver


Three Park students in the International Student-led Arctic Monitoring and Research (ISAMR) program will present posters at ArcticNet’s 11th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM2015) in Vancouver, British Columbia, this week.

The ASM2015 welcomes researchers, students, Northerners, policy makers, and stakeholders to address the numerous environmental, social, economical, and political challenges and opportunities that are emerging from climate change and modernization in the Arctic.

Park seniors Alexis Hudes and Andrew Hsiao and freshman Anna Connors will be joined by three Canadian students and two faculty members to present posters on topics using data collected during their trip to Churchill, Manitoba, this fall. Each poster focuses on a different set of data, including using whisker printing software to non-invasively collect individual data on polar bears in Churchill, an analysis of microbial soil communities of the bogs in the Hudson Bay Lowlands, and changing the permafrost active layer in peatlands of the Hudson Bay coastal region.
