A $17-million research study on climate change has been scrapped because of the very reason it was launched.
The University of Manitoba, which was leading the project, announced Monday that the Hudson Bay System Study was cancelled.
The Canadian Research Icebreaker CCGS Amundsen has cancelled the first leg of the 2017 Expedition due to complications associated with the southward motion of hazardous Arctic sea ice, caused by climate change, a release from the U of M said. The need to deal with extreme ice conditions in the south meant the ship would arrive too late on site to meet research objectives.
Five universities and 40 scientists were involved.
