AbstractBBDS permafrost is projected to warm the most in the region's coldest areas and to thaw considerably in the warmest areas. Ellesmere Island is an example of a cold area that is projected to experience pronounced permafrost warming. Southwestern Greenland is an example of a relatively warm area that is projected to experience pronounced permafrost thawing.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This contribution provides a summary of permafrost conditions in the Baffin Bay Davis Strait region, one of the pilot regions of an Arctic Council Project ¿Adaptation Actions for a Changing Arctic¿. A summary of current permafrost thermal state for the eastern Canadian Arctic and Greenland is provided along with documentation of recent trends in permafrost temperatures. Projections of future permafrost conditions are also provided. The entire report will evaluate how adaptions to a changing Arctic might occur and inform development of adaption strategies in response to a changing climate.
