The Wider Image: Climate change means the Inuit do what they've always done: Adapt
Rex Holwell, 47, checks Siku, an app used to share the sea ice thickness with community members, to make sure the data recorded during his SmartKAMUTIK run was uploaded correctly, in Nain, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, April 21, 2022. The SmartKAMUTIK uses electromagnetic sensors to measure the sea ice thickness and give northern communities real-time measurements of sea thickness along their ice "highways" through a website, downloadable phone app or Facebook. "We're the first people to be seeing the effects of climate change, but on the flip side, we're the people who have the least to do with it," says Holwell. "We have to adapt."
