This short documentary is part of the Science and the Top of the World series, which profiles the eco-systems of the Canadian Arctic and the people who study, monitor, and live in them. Northern ecologist John Sweetman explains how Wapusk National Park is actually growing in spots by over a metre a year. After being locked under the weight of the Laurentide ice sheet, the land is bouncing back due to isostatic rebound, thereby reshaping and reforming the landscape.
