5th ACD Workshop
Department of Geography, McGill University, Montréal (Canada), 13-16 October 2004
In October 2004, Canada hosted the 5th annual Arctic Coastal Dynamics Workshop. Despite Canada’s vested interest in Arctic coasts, it was the first time the workshop was held in this country. McGill University hosted 50 of the world’s top arctic coastal scientists from October 13 to 16. One of the main themes of ACD 2004 was the interdisciplinary investigation of permafrost and carbon related issues in Arctic coastal areas, however a new theme being introduced at the Canadian workshop was the impact of coastal change on the inhabitants of the Arctic shore zones.
