Carleton University, in collaboration with SmartICE, Mittimatalik Hunters and Trappers Organization, Hamlet of Mittimatalik, the Canadian Ice Service, and McMaster University, deployed and is maintaining a network of 2 Cryologger and 1 Onset automatic weather stations to complement Inuit Knowledge for travel safety and environmental monitoring. These stations report weather information hourly and were placed at sites chosen by the Sikumiut (SmartICE Community Management Committee in Mittimatalik) at these locations (click on link for weather information):
