Why study  Labrador?

Queen's University climate monitoring station in western Labrador.

Labrador is known to be an ecologically unique region with beautiful Subarctic and Arctic landscapes. Labrador is also home to Inuit, Innu, mixed and settler people who together contribute to a diverse cultural landscape.  Observed changes to the natural environment are acutely felt by Labradorians so understanding and predicting future impacts is this laboratory's priority.
