Ministry of Education, Manitoba
Once again the Ministry of Education in Manitoba has ensured all schools are aware of World Oceans Day and Oceans Week. Thank you to the Ministry and Teachers who are helping Students learn the importance of watersheds and the need to protect our waterways and oceans. Manitoba has a key role in the Hudsons Bay watershed, leading to the Arctic Ocean but is also part of other watersheds.
University of Manitoba
The University of Manitoba has been involved with ocean research for several years, funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation.
Meet the Research Chairs:
Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean (NEMO)
University of Manitoba
Central to an understanding of physical processes in the Arctic is the establishment of an integrated observational and modeling framework. The Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean (NEMO) is a coupled sea-ice/ocean model used to inform the Integrated Regional Impact Study (IRIS) as part of ArcticNet, a Canadian Network of Centres of Excellence. Of particular interest are projections for sea ice extent, thickness, and ice drift within three IRIS regions: Hudson Bay, Baffin Bay, and the Beaufort Sea.
David Barber's research team at the University of Manitoba's Centre for Earth Observation Science is using WestGrid's Grex cluster to incorporate and run the NEMO model to enable high-resolution modeling of sea ice processes within each of the IRIS regions. WestGrid's computing infrastructure is also used to develop scripts, visualization tools and diagnostics to facilitate and standardize analysis of NEMO numerical experiment output. The results of this research have the potential to impact Canadians by providing insight into sea ice conditions in Hudson Bay, Baffin Bay, and the Beaufort Sea, with implications for those living in northern coastal communities, renewable and nonrenewable resource development, and long-term social, economic, and environmental planning in response to a changing climate.

Rural Municipality of West St. Paul, Manitoba. Meet: near the Parley bus, we will work our way down the river from this point.
Walk for Water is the largest grassroots fundraising event in support of a healthy Lake Winnipeg. The events are a series of pledged community walks with proceeds going towards the important work of LWF. Taking place each summer in several lakeside communities, it's a great way to be a part of the solution — and a fun way to spend a day at the lake! Organized by the Lake Winnipeg Foundation.
