As part of the 2007-08 International Polar Year, the Canadian government funded an international, multi-year Arctic climate change study based out of the University of Manitoba. Over 350 scientists from 27 different countries, organized into 10 teams, participated in this multidisciplinary and collaborative project. Field work was performed on board the CCGS Amundsen in the Canadian Arctic.
On the Edge: From Knowledge to Action during the Fourth International Polar Year Circumpolar Flaw Lead System Study (2007-2008) is the second book about the science of the CFL project. A companion video was also developed.
