The Inuit Sea Ice Use and Occupancy Project
The Inuit Sea Ice Use and Occupancy Project (ISIUOP) builds on previous sea ice research in Nunavut and Nunavik communities (for the past 4 - 8 years), and aims to further document and map local sea ice expertise. Conventional maps show terrestrial variations and features in great detail, while water bodies are outlined and left "blank. " Therefore, inspired by the Inuit Land Use and Occupancy Project of 1976, ISIUOP will undertake collaborative investigations to document and map sea ice knowledge and use around several Inuit communities, including: 1.a characterization of seasonal sea ice conditions; 2.the extent and areas of sea ice use; 3.the nature and location of notable sea ice hazards; 4.key harvesting areas; v) traditional and current ice routes; 5.Inuktitut toponyms (placenames) or terminology associated with ice features, conditions, or dynamics; and, 6.shifts in patterns of sea ice use due to social and or climatic change.
