    Canadian Arctic waters had much less permanent ice compared to the same time last year. Only 11 per cent of the Canadian Arctic waters comprised thick, multi-year ice. In , old ice accounted for %. Most of the old, hard ice either melted or was flushed into the Atlantic Ocean, where it disintegrated. HISTORY OF CANADIAN METEOROLOGY: A BIBLIOGRAPHY. Morley K. Thomas. February In , when I retired from the Meteorological Service, I entered into an Agreement with the Assistant Deputy Minister which gave me office accommodation and access to the library and archives. In return I volunteered to research and write on the history of meteorology in Canada.

    The project "Meteorology for Air Traffic Management" (MET4ATM) uses nowcast and forecast weather data for aircraft re-routing calculations and visualization of weather in the radar display. Situated in the northern extremity of North America and covering about 1,, km 2 (, sq mi), this group of 36, islands in the Arctic Sea comprises much of the territory of Northern Canada—most of Nunavut and part of the Northwest Territories. The Canadian Arctic Archipelago is showing some effects of global warming, with some computer estimates determining that Location: Northern Canada.

    Bulletin No. 25, "Meteorology for Pilots," which at the time contained weather knowledge considered essential for most pilots. But as aircraft flew farther, faster, and higher and as meteorological knowledge grew, the bulletin became obsolete. It.   OK, so this is an imaginary version of what was required of personnel at the five Joint Arctic Weather Stations (JAWS) active across the Canadian High Arctic from to , but its take-heed tone about the physical and mental hardships of life in the North probably isn’t far off the mark.

The Department’s goals are to contribute to scientific knowledge by conducting world‐class research, and to be a source of information for the public and. The causes for the unique meteorology of the Pacific Arctic region is a seasonal swing from a large heat loss in winter to a heat gain in summer and the dominating presence of sea ice.

The primary determinant of this seasonal climate shift is the annual cycle of insolation from a maximum of W/m2 near the summer solstice to darkness in winter. The main recommended text is ‘Introducing Meteorology: A Guide to Weather’ by Jon Shonk ( £; also available as an e-book).
