Climate change geoscience in sub-Arctic Canada: M41-9/99E-PDF

information pages /

"Air temperatures in northern Canada are rising at a rate of three to four times that of the global average. This warming, and its consequences on the environment and people of the North, is of significant concern. This is particularly true for sub-Arctic Canada, which is located within a sensitive boundary between seasonally and perennially frozen ground (known as permafrost). Natural Resources Canada addresses priority geoscience issues important to Canadians. The Climate Change Geoscience Program, in partnership with other agencies, applies knowledge, techniques, and innovations to issues of climate change impacts and adaptations. This series of information pages describes the application of our geoscience expertise and its impact on addressing climate change and adaptation in sub-Arctic Canada. These pages cover the issues of surficial geology, permafrost distribution and change, ground temperatures, ice-rich terrain and thermokarst, winter roads, and change detection. A list of publications pertinent to the research activities presented in the information pages is provided at the end of this document"--Abstract, p. vi.
