nunavut heritage sites face climate threat  -  laser measuring equipment
The Nunavut Archaeological site threatened by climate change was preserved due to the new height
The area's director of Culture and Heritage said technical equipment.
Doug Stanton says the new 3D technology and aground-
Ground and sub-can be quickly mapped using a penetrating radar system
It can be used to deal with sites affected by coastal erosion and the melting of permanent frozen layers.
The University of Manitoba has received funds to purchase the technology and plans to use it in the Arctic.
"This will help us identify areas that need special attention. . .
Help us plan our strategy to protect the website ,[such as]
"The stability approach," says Stenton.
He added that there are about 12,000 recorded websites in Nunavut, dating back to 4,500 years.
Stone tools, clothes, bones, stone carvings and masks can be found.
As an example of a threatened website, stentonted points to a photo with a piece of artifacts from Tunisians or dorsetpeople that are related to the Inuit
A large area near the entrance to Nunavut pond has been washed into the ocean.
"This is an example of the kind of erosion that we see on the site, and also the things that we may have to pay more attention to due to climate change, global warming and the melting of the permanent frozen layer
"Brooke Milne, professor of archaeology at the University of Manitoba, obtained funding from the Canadian innovation foundation to purchase new equipment, which she said has never been used in the eastern Arctic.
"This will allow us to define the overall scope of the site with digital capabilities, without having to dig into its information as we traditionally have access to the same type of site," she said.
The technology will also help to find websites in the submarine area
Arctic region with more vegetation.
A device is a laser measuring microscope that digitizes the workpiece so that researchers can save the workpiece without physical objects.
Archaeologists hope to work with the Department of Engineering at the University of Waterloo to develop a strategy to stabilize threatened sites.
Stenton said other polar countries are identifying rich heritage sites at risk due to climate change.
The technology will be purchased in 2011 and researchers hope to use it in Nunavut in 2012.
