Record #191608:

Sea ice mapping: ontology, mechanics and human rights at the ice flow edge / Michael T. Bravo.

Title: Sea ice mapping: ontology, mechanics and human rights at the ice flow edge / Michael T. Bravo.
Author(s): Bravo, Michael T.
Date: 2008.
Publisher: London: I.B. Tauris
In: High places : cultural geographies of mountains and ice. (2008.),
Abstract: Notes centrality of sea-ice knowledge and use to coastal Inuit culture, and how this motivated Inuit Circumpolar Council's 2005 claim to Inter-American Commission on Rights that failure of United States to sign Kyoto Protocol infringed human rights by failing to deal with greenhouse gas emissions (thereby threatening access to sea ice). Examines how Inuit describe sea-ice geography and features, their use of place names, and efforts to preserve sea-ice language. Discusses mapping of sea ice from Inuit perspective and how interaction with Western scientific approach has helped to chronicle secular change, particularly in position and character of floe edge (of critical importance to hunting)
