Explain why cold regions are among the first to be affected by climate warming. 2. How cold is the climate of Canada? 1 Introduction The record of the pre-Wisconsinan glacial history of Canada’s North is fragmentary. It comprises stratigraphic evidence of multiple glacier and ice sheet advances and associated sea level changes. The most complete landform and sediment record is available for the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM).

3 Recent changes in permafrost temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere. 3 Cold Canada Coldness is a dominant and pervasive characteristic of Canada. Snow and subfreezing temperatures are common and widespread, the only exception being the maritime lowland fringes of British Columbia. On the other hand, the large majority of Canada’s population resides in a narrow, 100–150 km wide, belt along its southern border with the United States. Here, climate is largely temperate, seasonal agriculture is possible, plant and animal productivity is relatively high, and the constraints of cold are temporarily forgotten for at least half of the year.

Elias Mountains of the southwestern Yukon, the Coast Mountains of British Columbia and the Rocky Mountains straddling the border with Alberta. These mountains contain the highest peaks in Canada – Mounts Logan and St. Elias. The mountains of eastern Canada are less rugged and include those of western Newfoundland, the Gaspe Peninsula (Mont Jacques Cartier), and the highlands of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Low temperatures, high winds, high humidity and high annual snowfall amounts make all these mid-latitude mountains eminently ‘cold’ in character.
