Forecasting an ever-changing climate

Julienne Stroeve once dreamed of travelling to outer space. Instead, she has limited her travels to the ends of the earth.

Stroeve is a climatologist, Arctic ice expert and a world leader in the integration of large-scale observations and satellite remote sensing data used to study sea ice dynamic and thermodynamic processes.

As of September 2018, she is also the U of M’s new Canada 150 Chair in Sea Ice-Climate Coupling.

In her new role, Stroeve will receive seven million dollars in federal funding over seven years to continue and extrapolate on the research that has brought her global acclaim, briefings with the CIA and with former American vice-president Al Gore, and recurring appearances on both the History and Weather Channels.

Two important partnerships, with the University College of the North (UCN) and the Northern Manitoba Mining Academy (NMMA), seek to provide greater access to training and educational opportunities for northern Manitobans.
