Research and monitoring
Many research projects have taken place in Quttinirpaaq National Park over the years, enhancing our understanding of the park’s natural and cultural heritage. Research teams conducting studies in the park vary from year to year.
Below are highlights of a few studies that took place in the park in 2018. One of the projects was a study of a glacier done at the request of Parks Canada, and the others are long term projects in the Lake Hazen and Ward Hunt Island areas of the park, two of which are led by academic institutions, and one of which is a collaboration between Parks Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada.
