Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This article introduces a special issue of Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences entitled "Landscape & Seascape Responses to Canada's Changing Climate". Most of the fourteen papers in this issue result from research undertaken (with university collaborators) at the Geological Survey of Canada of Natural Resources Canada, under its Climate Change Geoscience Program. The focus of the program is on the influence of climate change on the Earth’s surface in northern and coastal regions, and the implications for society to adapt to this change in a robust, resilient manner. The papers included here reflect that focus, with changes to permafrost, glaciers, and especially coastlines well represented. With ongoing climate warming, these changes will continue with impacts on natural systems and society. The results presented point to an ongoing need for adequate geoscience knowledge to improve assessments of climate change impacts, to predict future conditions, and to inform land-use management and development of adaptation strategies.
