Estimating Future Costs for Infrastructure in the Proposed Canadian Northern Corridor at Risk From C
6 March 2023
The loss of the Arctic ice sheet has increased four-fold since the 1990s and the retreat of world glaciers is unprecedented in the last 2,000 years. [...] Surface Winds (SFC): Surface winds will decrease in the eastern and western parts of the CNC and increase in the northwestern Beaufort Sea and the western areas of Hudson Bay. [...] The areas most impacted include the central parts of the corridor and the northwestern and western regions (Figure 9c). [...] Given the current findings and the geographical distribution of results, we believe that MB, BC, AB and NT would work as representative case studies in terms of distribution centres and points of major infrastructure for the distribution of goods and services in the region. [...] But before using the climate variables and scenarios in the formula, we calculated the mean and the standard deviation and standardized the series values for normalization.
