Climate Change Information for Adaptation: Climate Trends and Projected Values for Canada from 2010 to 2050
This report summarizes for 18 regions, the observed climate trends to date and some climate related factors. Projections are then given to 2050 of these key climate and climate-related factors. These related factors emphasize events or trends which result in hardship or damages or benefits, and are often felt most strongly in communities. An emphasis has been placed on extreme events when data and projections were available, since they often cause the largest damages and human disruptions. Where very limited Canadian data are available, trends in adjacent U.S.A., where much more such data have been available and analyzed, are cited.
