Outreach 2014

In 2002, a group of university researchers joined together to form the Canadian Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Change (CANDAC) with the objective of improving the state of observational atmospheric research in Canada. This group recognized the need for an Arctic laboratory and identified Eureka, Nunavut as the ideal location for the station.

They obtained funding to equip and run the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory (PEARL) and began to operate in fall 2005. Since then, researchers have been taking various measurements to monitor and better understand current atmospheric conditions and the changes that are occurring over time.



Institutions involved with CANDAC:

University of Toronto • Dalhousie University University of New Brunswick Université de Sherbrooke York University University of Waterloo University of Western Ontario University of Saskatchewan Environment Canada NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)
