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):
• ᓴᓐᓂᕈᑦ Sannirut
• ᐃᒡᓗᑭᓵᑦ Iglukisaat
• ᑐᖅᖃᔮᑦ (ᐃᓕᔭᐅᓵᓕᓂᐊᖅᑐᖅ) Tuqqajaat (coming soon)
The Mittimatalik weather stations are designed to be for the community, by the community. If you have questions or concerns about the weather stations, please contact Andrew Arreak (email@example.com).
The weather information will soon be available on SIKU.org and the SIKU app.
Our technician team is Andrew Arreak, Ada Loewen, Derek Mueller.
We gratefully acknowledge our funder ArcticNet. The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC) has endorsed this project as part of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (the Ocean Decade).

Cryologger Automatic Weather Stations are open-source and custom-developed for Arctic conditions. They are low-cost, easy to maintain and flexible systems. Cryologger systems are developed at the Water and Ice Research Lab (WIRL) at Carleton University in Ottawa.
