Wildfire Impacts on the North Slave Region Ecosystem/Répercussions des feux de forêt sur l’écosystème des cours d'eau

Cette vidéo met en avant un projet financé par le PSEC des TNO, mené par Mike Pisaric de l’Université Brock, pour étudier les effets cumulatifs de deux principaux agents de perturbation – la sécheresse et les feux de forêt – et leurs effets sur les forêts et les systèmes aquatiques dans la région du Slave Nord.

Description: 

This paper looks at the Arctic's rapid and intense warming trend using Environment Canada weather stations data from four communities in the NWT. The airport weather stations in Inuvik, Norman Wells, Yellowknife and Fort Smith date back to the 1940s and are the longest standing and most consistent climate stations in the NWT. The report contains information from datasets between 1957 and 2012. These four communities sit on a rough north to south transect and are well spaced to provide a good overview of the trends in the Mackenzie River watershed.

The following is a summary of a completed study that mapped the predicted ecosystem changes that would occur in the NWT and Alaska (not shown) due to warming temperatures associated with climate change. Three scenarios, based on global greenhouse gas emissions, were studied; a low temperature increase, an average temperature increase, and a high temperature increase. The results were overlain on a map of the NWT, and these maps are presented in this summary. For more information on the study and its methodology, please refer to the full report completed by the Scenarios Network for Arctic Planning and the EWHALE lab, University of Alaska Fairbanks.
