      Eddy Carmack is a luminary of climate oceanography. Since the 1960s, he has completed more than 90 field missions, documenting the Arctic Ocean’s role as an exemplar for climate change.

      His big-picture thinking, collaborative focus and emphasis on linking research with the needs of polar communities have guided his career, from his early Beaufort Sea expeditions to his co-introduction of science-capable icebreakers. Now an emeritus scientist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, he has left a legacy of Arctic knowledge to the next generation of researchers.
