Potential impacts of future climate change on permafrost and water resources of Nunavut / Lucie Lévesque.: En13-5/05-306E-PDF

"Global climate of the 20th century has changed at a rate unprecedented in the last thousand years. The greatest changes in climate and some of the most dramatic effects of climate change have occurred in the Arctic, and are projected to be most pronounced at high latitudes as climate change progresses through the 21st century. The Arctic Climate Impact Assessment (ACIA) was an international, circumarctic initiative to assess the regional impacts of projected climate change and UV radiation on the physical, biological, socio-economic and cultural environments of the Arctic over the 21st century. The current report examines the potential changes in permafrost and water resources of Nunavut with future climate as projected by the ACIA"--Executive summary, page 10.
