Into the Arctic

With commentaries by Todd Wilkinson; Billy Arnaquq; Manitoba Senator Patricia Bovey, FRSA, FCMA; Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario; Wade Davis; Robert Bateman; John Geiger; and others, this impressive volume highlights over a decade of awe-inspiring oil paintings of the Canadian Arctic by renowned landscape artist, Cory Trépanier. With a backpack full of painting, filming and camping gear, Cory Trépanier traversed more than 40,000 kilometres through six Arctic national parks and 16 Arctic communities--and exploring many more places in between--in a biosphere so remote and untouched that most of its vast landscape had never been painted before. Into the Arctic represents the most ambitious body of artwork ever dedicated to the Canadian Arctic. Featuring vivid and unforgettable imagery together with engaging essays that will inspire and educate, this collection enables readers to experience Cory's evocative and authentic vision of a land that few have had the opportunity to even visit, let alone preserve on canvas. This is a place where remoteness no longer offers the protection it once did from an uncertain future that will impact us all.

Considered sacred by Indigenous peoples in Alaska and Canada and treasured by environmentalists, the refuge provides life-sustaining habitat for caribou, polar bears, migratory birds, and other species. For decades, though, the fossil fuel industry and powerful politicians have sought to turn this unique ecosystem into an oil field. Defending the Arctic Refuge tells the improbable

Conversations defining the Arctic region often provoke debate and controversy -- for scientists, this lies in the imprecise and imaginary line known as the Arctic Circle; for countries like Canada, Russia, the United States, and Denmark, such discussions are based in competition for land and resources; for indigenous communities, those discussions are also rooted in issues of rights. These shifting lines are only made murkier by the threat of global climate change. In the Arctic Ocean, the consequences of Earth's

The Arctic, long described as the world’s last frontier, is quickly becoming our first frontier—the front line in a world of more diffuse power, sharper geopolitical competition, and deepening interdependencies between people and nature. A space of often-bitter cold, the Arctic is the fastest-warming place on earth. It is humanity’s canary in the coal mine—an early warning sign of the world’s climate crisis. The Arctic “regime” has pioneered many innovative means of governance among often-contentious

The Arctic can be viewed as an integrated system, characterised by intimate couplings between its atmosphere, ocean and land, linked in turn to the larger global system. This comprehensive, up-to-date assessment begins with an outline of early Arctic exploration and the growth of modern research. Using an integrated systems approach, subsequent chapters examine the atmospheric heat budget and circulation, the surface energy budget, the hydrologic cycle and interactions between the ocean, atmosphere and sea ice cover.
