180 sessions, master classes and field visits will address themes such as migration, habitat, coasts, fisheries, agriculture, water, energy, finance, education, NBS, local and indigenous knowledge, equity and justice…
Be there! Register now for early bird rate and access cutting-edge knowledge to shape the future of adaptation.
By analyzing climate model data running the SSP2-4.5 scenario (aka the “medium” carbon scenario available on ClimateData.ca) it appears likely that this location will experience zero -30°C days starting in the 2040s. From the year 2043 onwards, median projections consistently show zero -30°C days.
Of course, this is the long-term average. In reality, due to variability in the climate system, the actual number of cold days per year will fluctuate. Throughout the historical period, the number of -30 days has also fluctuated. By the way, 1875 holds the record for the most -30 days, totalling 55!
Cold weather, while maybe not the most pleasant for citizens, is a crucial facet of Canadian life. Understanding future winter changes is vital, as they impact health, safety, local flora and fauna, outdoor pursuits like ice fishing and skiing, infrastructure design, and transportation and energy consumption.
