Hudson Bay System Study (BaySys) is a collaborative project led by the University of Manitoba and Manitoba Hydro, with collaborations from Hydro Quebec, Ouranos and seven academic institutions (Universities of Alberta, Calgary, Northern British Columbia, Laval, Québec à Rimouski, Sherbrooke, and Trent) investigating the inter-connected systems of the Hudson Bay. The objective of BaySys is to examine the influence of freshwater on Hudson Bay marine and coastal systems. Specifically, providing a scientific basis to separate climate change effects from those of regulation of freshwater on physical, biological and biogeochemical conditions in Hudson Bay. This objective is being addressed through a “systems” perspective, with sub-objectives to examine the climate, marine, and freshwater systems, and to study the cycling of carbon and contaminants across the Bay.
