The mighty Thores

The High Arctic weather gods were kind to us this year and we were able to spend 11 days exploring the beautiful and remote Thores Lake and glacier. This is the first time that the microbiology of this water basin has been characterized and we can’t wait to see what will be revealed. After Thores we were able to check in on some old friends, the sister lake of Lake A, creatively named Lake B, and the Milne Fiord epishelf lake, now down to 9 m in depth. The team this year consisted of Catherine Girard (UL), Elise Imbeau (UQAC), Pilipoosie Iqaluk (HTA Resolute), Will Kochtitzky (U of Ottawa), Denis Sarrazin (CEN, UL) and Alex Culley (UL)
