International Polar Year (IPY) Slideshows
In a series of photographic slide shows, we present a look inside just some of the work of Fisheries and Oceans Canada scientists and their Canadian and international academic colleagues during International Polar Year (2007-2008).
- Canada's Three Oceans Voyage (HTML)
The first presentation concentrates on the science work of the "Canada's Three Oceans" (C3O), project aboard the icebreaker, CCGS Louis S. St-Laurent during its first summer. For more information about C3O, go to: http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/science/polarYear-AnneePolaire/index_e.html
- Bridging Two Cultures Through Climate Variability Study (HTML)
Also using images taken on the C3O research mission is a photo essay about the importance of understanding climate variability to Canada's Inuit, entitled "Bridging Two Cultures Through Climate Variability Study".
- It's a life of ocean science for me (HTML)
The third in the series of C3O photo presentations, "It's a Life of Ocean Science for Me", depicts what life on board the vessel is like, especially for the young scientists and the reporters on board who must pass a traditional seafarer's initiation at the Arctic Circle.
