Grant Gunn is Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography, Environment and Spatial Sciences. His main research and teaching areas are discuss physical dynamics and the remote sensing of lake and sea ice formation, phenology and in the quantification of ice properties such as ice thickness and composition across Arctic and sub-Arctic environments. He is particularly interested in the use of passive and active microwave remote sensing technologies to relate in-situ physical properties of snow and ice to observations acquired from ground, air, and spaceborne sensors. His work has focused on several cold regions in Canada’s north, including Churchill (Manitoba), Inuvik (Northwest Territories) and Resolute (Nunavut).
