Enter scientists like Dr. Eddy Carmack.
Dr. Carmack is a Scientist Emeritus with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and for much of his career was a climate oceanographer with the department. His primary focus was on the Arctic and the northern ocean and he has interesting things to say about the changes he sees going on there, and their impact on the rest of the world. He too is quick to point out that his work, and that of other scientists, is not carried out to prove cause and effect. And that it is quite a leap to go from climate-related studies and pin them specifically on a single meteorological event like Hurricane Sandy. That said, for the last two decades he has attempted to find linkages between what's going on in the Arctic Ocean with what is transpiring in its neighbouring subarctic, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It is the connectivity of processes that fascinates him and it has been a theme that has run through much of his research. He has been very well placed to examine those processes since he led Canada's Three Oceans (C3O) project from 2007 to 2011. Dr. Carmack: "The Canada Basin study is the premier Arctic monitoring activity in the world in terms of temporal, spatial and disciplinary breadth. Dr. Carmack: "Heating the polar vortex causes it to rotate slower. Dr. Carmack: "We are increasingly living in a nonlinear and unpredictable world.

Eddy Carmack has a special affinity for American ecologist Edward Ricketts, who was fictionalized in John Steinbeck's novel Cannery Row.
Carmack, a climate oceanographer with Fisheries and Oceans Canada in Sidney, B.C., also subscribes to fishboat science, "which is synonymous," he says, "with 'on the cheap.'" In his spare time, he explores the Koeye River and estuary on British Columbia's central coast from the deck of his converted 1947 troller. His goal, he says, is simply to document this unspoiled ecosystem "before it is too late." It's a measure of his passion for lakes, rivers and oceans that Carmack devotes holidays to monitoring the Koeye. In his day job at the Institute of Ocean Sciences, he is an internationally respected expert on the Arctic Ocean. Over the past four decades, he has participated in more than 60 field studies in Western Canada, Siberia, Antarctica and the Arctic, including the first scientific crossing of the Arctic Ocean via the North Pole. For his leading role in ocean science, Carmack has been awarded the 2007 Massey Medal for outstanding achievement in Canadian geography. Established by Governor General Vincent Massey in 1959, the award is administered by The Royal Canadian Geographical Society . A creative thinker, Carmack has a knack for making science accessible. As a volunteer on Students on Ice expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctica, he has introduced teenagers to the complexities of ocean currents by having them drop beer bottles into the water to see where they end up (see "Message in a bottle," July/Aug 2006 ). "He got the students switched on to ocean currents," says Geoff Green, executive director of Students on Ice. "He was explaining climate change to students way before it became the big issue that it is today." For International Polar Year, Carmack is embarking on the most ambitious study yet of Canada's oceans. Scientists aboard two icebreakers will document the oceans' physical properties, such as currents, and life forms ranging from bacteria to whales. They will travel a 12,000-kilometre course, from Victoria through the Northwest Passage to Halifax. Their goal is to develop a large-scale picture of the ecosystems in the Arctic and subarctic seas. Geographic research usually implies things terrestrial, explains Carmack.
