Description: 

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.
