International Student-led Arctic Monitoring and Research (ISAMR)
Thank you NSERC for the renewed funding!
ISAMR is a coalition of students, teachers, and professional researchers who have been working together since 2007 on a projected 30-year study of the permafrost and sea ice in the subarctic climate through monitoring vegetation and polar bear populations. Current partners include private and public schools , The Park School of Baltimore, Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, and Kelvin High School. Students from the Churchill Junior Canadian Rangers play a prominent role in the both the cultural and scientific aspects of the permafrost and polar bear research. ISAMR is generously funded and supported by NSERC, University of Manitoba, University of Saskatchewan, Sustainable Development of Manitoba, Johns Hopkins University, and the Park School of Baltimore.
