    Climate change threatens the health of British Columbians
    (Electronic version published by Vancouver Island University, 2018-04-11) Gaiga, Serena; Kuzminski, Kurt; Latham, Tanys; Lightfoot, Charmaine; Nikolov, Ivo; Thomson, Dulcie
    A literature review investigated the links between climate change and the Prerequisites of Health as defined in the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion: peace, food, shelter, sustainable resources, education, income, social justice/equity, and sustainable ecosystems. All are necessary components of healthy communities across the province, and all are increasingly threatened by anthropogenic climate change. Reassessing climate change as a public health issue provides this complex phenomenon with personal relevance. Implications for nursing practice are explored as nurses are well-positioned to lead climate action across British Columbia.

    A geochemical comparison of basalts of Ainsley Beach, Nanoose Bay, B.C. to a back-arc basin
    (Electronic version published by Vancouver Island University, 2018-04-12) Croxall, Roxanne; Dickson, Myles; Ostapowich, Kevin; Wickman, Tim; Rossetto, Cameron; Johnstone, Sandra
    The aim of this study was to determine the geologic setting in which the basalts at Ainsley Beach were formed, and more specifically if they formed in a back-arc basin setting. Geochemical comparisons between selected Vancouver Island rock units using archived, and newly collected data sets will be analyzed to determine tectonic setting of rock formation.
