Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Fiords are long, flooded valleys with steep walls that can be at a higher risk of landslides. Landslides that occur in fiords may run out into the water of the inlet, possibly resulting in tsunamis. Communities in eastern Nunavut, often at or near sea level, are potentially at risk to landslides and tsunamis. This poster describes the distribution of landslides and debris flows in Grise Fiord. It provides a preliminary assessment of the area susceptible to debris flows and maps the distribution of potential rock slope failures.
