|How does climate change and vegetation growth affect snow properties and permafrost temperature?||Animals, Landscape, Temperature, Terrestrial Environment, Weather & Precipitation||04-07-2015||
The properties of snow on the ground change over time and these changes are affected by temperature and wind, i.e. climate. Lemmings live under the snow and need to travel under the snow in search of food in winter. They are therefore sensitive to snow properties and climate change may strongly affect their populations, and of course also the populations of their predators.
|Climate Change Adaptation for Nunavut Decision Makers Course||Animals, Aquatic Environment, Energy, Food Security, Health & Disease, Heritage, IQ, Landscape, Permafrost, Plants, Resource Development, Sea Ice & Ice, Sea Level, Security & Safety, Temperature, Terrestrial Environment, Tourism, Traditional Activities, Transportation, Watershed, Weather & Precipitation||03-27-2015||
