Mackenzie Basin Impact Study: Summary of Interim Report #2 (CCD
95-01), S.J. Cohen, 10 pp., 1995.
The summary report of the Sixth Biennial Meeting on Northern Climate
and the Mid Study Workshop of the Mackenzie Basin Impact Study. The
impacts of climate change in the Mackenzie basin will be particularly felt
through landscape and ecosystem "filters" such as permafrost, ice,
hydrology and the life cycles of vegetation and wildlife. Describes changes in
the landscape based on a scenario obtained from outputs from global climate
models. These could in turn impact the region's economy and society.
Impacts of Climate Change on Resource Management of the North. Symposium
Summary (CCD 94-02), T. Goos, G. Wall, 8 pp., 1994. In English and French.
From the fourth in a series of Canada/U.S. symposia. Should climate change
occur as expected, the presence of ice and permafrost will be reduced with
profound and broad implications to the lifestyles and cultures of native
peoples, transportation, land use and resource development. Makes several
recommendations for future study and calls for extended circumpolar cooperation.
