With snow blanketing the landscape and the vacation season fast approaching, Atikᵁ invites you to take a reading break long enough to discover or rediscover our native literary gems.

In a context of climate change where freezing and thawing regimes tend to change, the coastal environments of the Arctic Ocean are severely affected by the phenomenon of erosion. Rich in sediment, the permafrost, under the influence of rapid erosion, causes a significant input of water to the coastline. As this ocean opens up before our eyes, the disturbances linked to erosion are causing a constant change in the bathymetry of the Arctic Ocean.
