I am MSc student in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University. The research project I am apart of is focusing on Tsá Tué biosphere reserve, more specifically, Great Bear Lake (GBL), in Délįne, Northwest Territories (NWT). The objective of my thesis research is to investigate how climate change impacts northern freshwater lake ecosystems as changing winter conditions are among the greatest threats to northern lakes, which represent vast reserves of freshwater and biodiversity, and provide key provisioning and cultural ecosystem services to local communities. To conduct this research, ReSEC utilizes remote sensing techniques and multiple field measurement techniques. This involves operating numerous instruments including ground penetrating radar (GPR) device to measure lake ice depths, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with thermal and optical sensors, and an underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) to investigate under the ice and water quality.
