The Arctic Sink for Contaminants

Gwyneth Anne MacMillan
Étudiante au doctorat

Getting to work isn’t always easy, as I work in remote places that are pretty hard to get to, requiring ATVs, boats, and often helicopters! But even though my field sites are far from the sources of pollution in the south, they are not pristine. I study pollution in the Canadian Arctic and I work in collaboration with northern communities so that, together, we can better understand and protect vulnerable northern ecosystems from pollution.
