    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...

    Forest Fire Severity Level, 2090-2099

    Climate warming can bring more frequent and severe forest fires. This map shows the change in forest fire severity levels across Canada from 2090 to 2099, based on Global Generation Circulation Models. The Seasonal Severity Rating (SSR) is a measure of fire danger conditions over a complete fire...
