Climate change is causing more trouble as a Canadian research was cancelled due to, guess what — climate change. The first leg of the 2017 Expedition project of the Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen was dropped due to the hazardous motion of the Arctic sea.
The study worth $17 million should span for four years and involves about 40 scientists from five different universities. However, there is no assessment available yet as to how the delay will impact the course of the study.
Due to extreme ice conditions, the ship may arrive too late on site to perform the research objectives of this leg. This led the team to cancel the climate change study to avoid wasting efforts.
The Canadian researchers, in partnership with various international team, have monitored and observed the Arctic marine and coastal ecosystems since 2003….
