    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 - 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...

    Climate Warming - Global Annual Temperature Scenario: 2050

    A simulation of projected changes in annual mean temperatures from the period 1975 to 1995 to the period 2040 to 2060 is shown on this map. According to this projection, the Arctic would experience the greatest annual mean warming followed by other areas in northern Canada and central and...

    Climate Warming - National Winter Precipitation Scenario: 2050

    A simulation of projected changes in winter (December to February) 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. Projected precipitation changes are...

    Climate Warming - Global Annual Precipitation Scenario: 2100

    A simulation of projected changes in mean annual precipitation from the period 1975 to 1995 to the period 2080 to 2100 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 Summer Temperature Scenario: 2050

    A simulation of projected changes in summer (June to August) 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 model shows broadly similar but weaker and less...
