The Takuvik Team has been testing the ice camp airboat by driving in icy conditions, in order to be prepared for the campaign. Before the ice melted in Quebec city, our team tested the boat a second time.
Before beginning the construction of the ice camp facilities, we must know the conditions of the location where we will install our equipment. Consequently, we are getting in situ information about the surrounding environment.
The Takuvik team recently completed Wilderness & Remote First Aid (WRFA) training, in order to be prepared for the conditions of a remote ice camp located 30 km away from the Inuit community of Qikiqtarjuaq, where we are going to conduct our Green Edge Project research campaigns. Frostbite and hypothermia will be the main risks to be avoided.
