Group: Summary

   The Kangiqtugaapik (Clyde River), Nunavut, Canada, Weather Station Network is 
   a collection of weather station data from the locations of Akuliaqattak, 
   Silasiutitalik, and Ailaktalik in the Clyde River area.  Data collection for 
   the Silalirijiit project began in June 2010 and is ongoing. An online 
   interface shows the current conditions at these locations. Weather data from 
   the Kangiqtugaapik Airport Station, collected by Environment Canada, are also 
   provided.  The data will be archived at NSIDC in the future; at this time, the 
   site displays current conditions. 

   This data set is part of the Silalirijiit Project and is funded by a National 
   Science Foundation grant (ARC-0753854) entitled IPY: Collaborative Research: 
   Linking Inuit Knowledge and Local-Scale Environmental Modeling to Evaluate the 
   Impacts of Changing Weather on Human Activities at Clyde River, Nunavut.
