An Arctic research station that had been crippled by funding cuts, sparking loud protests among scientists, is getting an injection of money to keep it alive for the next five years.

The Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Laboratory (PEARL) in Eureka, Nunavut, will receive a $5-million grant over a maximum of five years, the Harper government announced Friday. Six other climate-related and mostly northern research projects will get similar grants.

"My major reaction was relief, since this issue has occupied a lot of my energy for the past year," says Jim Drummond, PEARL's principal investigator. "It means that we can keep the instrumentation running and do some science."
