  • Climatic Regions

    Contained within 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the division of Canada into climatic regions according to the classification of the climates of the world developed by W. Koppen. Koppen first divided the world into five major divisions to which he assigned the...

  • Soil Climate

    Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a set of two maps. One shows soil temperature classes and the second shows soil moisture regimes and subclasses. These maps are supplemented by a text giving detailed definitions for both soil temperature classes and soil moisture...

  • Climatic Regions Thornthwaite Classification Moisture Regions

    Contained within the 5th Edition (1978 to 1995) of the National Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the distribution for the two moisture aspects of Thornthwaite's climate classification system. The moisture regions are shown as coloured areas representing six moist and three dry climates; and...

  • Climate Warming - National Annual Precipitation Scenario: 2050

    A simulation of projected changes in annual mean precipitation from the period 1961 to 1990 to the period 2040 to 2060 for Canada is shown on this map. In general, precipitation would increase as the century progresses and the climate warms and this is reflected in the annual average pattern....

  • Climate Warming - Global Summer Temperature Scenario: 2050

    A simulation of projected changes in June to August mean temperatures from the period 1975 to 1995 to the period 2040 to 2060 is shown on this map. According to this projection, there would be typically more warming over land than over oceans, at higher latitudes than at lower latitudes, and in...

  • Climatic Regions Thornthwaite Classification Thermal Efficiency Regions

    Contained within the 5th Edition (1978 to 1995) of the National Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the distribution for the two thermal aspects of Thornthwaite's climate classification system. There is thermal efficiency (a measure of heat received at the ground) shown as coloured areas in five...

  • Climate Warming - National Summer Precipitation Scenario: 2050

    A simulation of projected changes in summer (June to August) precipitation from the period 1961 to 1990 to the period 2040 to 2060 for Canada is shown on this map. Projected precipitation changes would not be evenly distributed geographically. Summer patterns show regions with both increases and...

  • Climate Warming - Global Summer Temperature Scenario: 2100

    A simulation showing the projected changes in June to August mean temperatures from the period 1975 to 1995 to the period 2080 to 2100 is shown on this map. There would be typically more warming over land than over oceans, at higher latitudes than at lower latitudes, but the warming would be...

  • Climate Warming - Global Annual Precipitation Scenario: 2050

    A simulation of projected changes in mean annual precipitation from the period 1975 to 1995 to the period 2040 to 2060, is shown on this map. On average, precipitation increases, but it is not evenly distributed geographically. There are marked regions of decreasing, as well as increasing...

  • Climate Warming - National Annual Temperature Scenario: 2050

    A simulation of projected changes in annual mean temperatures from the period 1961 to 1990 to the period 2040 to 2060 for Canada is shown on this map. The temperature changes would not be evenly distributed geographically. The largest warming projected is for the interior and northern parts of...
