Research Assistant (Winter and Fall 2020)
I am a student in the bachelor's degree in Geomatics applied to the environment and I had the opportunity to realize two internships for the T-MARS project during my studies. My first internship consisted of experimenting with different processing techniques of WorldView 2 and 3 satellite images in order to find a method of identifying gossans in our study area. At the same time, I also conducted a review of the scientific literature and the numerous existing geological maps in order to make a census of the known locations of gossans in the Canadian Arctic.
My second internship consists in designing and implementing a web platform (on which you are currently navigating) as well as an interactive web map. The objective of these two means of communication is to disseminate the research project to the public and to share the results with northern communities. I invite you to visit our interactive map and our blog if not already done!
I began my studies in geology before redirecting myself to geomatics, which is in line with my interests in both fields.I have also been interested in astronomy and the observation of stars and celestial bodies for several years. I have always had an adventurous spirit, which I was able to confirm during my first internship in geomatics for the Lake Pulse project. I had the chance to be part of a field team sampling lakes for nine weeks in British Columbia, Yukon and Northwest Territories. This experience helped me to discover my strong interest in polar and northern environments, and led me to realize that science and adventure are not incompatible! Something to dream about for my future career...
In a shorter term, I will start a master's degree in the T-MARS project at the end of my bachelor's degree, about the spectral and compositional analysis of gossans in volcanic environment at the local scale from meter to centimeter.
Éloïse will be a member of the field sampling team for the summer of 2021.
