Research topic: This Master aims at understanding the interactions between climate, oceans and cryosphere since the last glaciation in Baffin Bay. The main objective of this project is to understand the dynamics of the three ice sheets of the last glaciation : the Laurentide, Innuitian and Greenland ice sheets.

Progress update: This project includes also the identification and characterization of layers associated with fluctuations in ice caps since the last glaciation from sedimentary analysis, in addition to participate in the processing and interpretation of geophysical data in order to prepare a mission in Baffin Bay aboard the CCGS Amundsen.
