|Traditional Culture and Dog-Sledding in Greenland|
Traditional dog sledding near Uummannaq, Greenland in May 2009. In Eastern and Northern Greenland the dogsled continues to play an important role today as a means of transport for fishermen and hunters, as it has done for several thousand years. Recent comparison can be made to the total lack of sea ice throughout the winter of 2005. This example of localized climate variation variation incurs positive and negative impacts on the community of Uummannaq.
