  • Thomas James (Research Scientist, Geological Survey of Canada, Natural Resources Canada)

This presentation summarized the observed and projected changes for the three oceans surrounding Canada in the context of anthropogenic climate change and natural climate variability. The results were drawn from Chapter 7 of the recently released Canada’s Changing Climate Report, a contribution to the National Assessment Canada in a Changing Climate: Advancing our Knowledge for Action. Changes in the physical and chemical properties of the oceans surrounding Canada were covered along with relative sea level changes for Canadian coastal areas.
