By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

A team from Oceans North Canada installs the second of two cameras on cliffs overlooking Eclipse Sound near Pond Inlet recently. The team is hoping to get time-lapse images of the floe edge as it recedes in spring to see how the ice behaves. They want to be able to compare how the ice acts naturally prior to any ice-breaking in the Sound. Baffinland Iron Mines, which runs the Mary River iron mine in North Baffin, is proposing to ship iron ore out of Milne Inlet and through Eclipse Sound 10 months of the year with the aid of icebreakers. That proposal is currently undergoing an environmental assessment with the Nunavut Impact Review Board. See story on Nunatsiaqonline. ca. (PHOTO BY TREVOR TAYLOR)
