Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Preface
From 2003 to 2006, the Earth Sciences Sector of Natural Resources Canada conducted a study of the sensitivity of the Roberts Bank tidal flats and marsh to rising sea level, under the Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Program (Project A600). The study was a multi-disciplinary effort involving geologists, biologists and social scientists comprising a scientific study of the tidal flat environment and a stakeholder engagement process. The results of the work were presented at a Final Stakeholder Workshop on 24 March 2006 and compiled into a preliminary report distributed to the major stakeholders.
Since that time, further research, particularly on global and local sea level rise has been carried out and published. The results presented in the draft report were based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Third Assessment Report. Since that time, the IPCC has published its Fourth Assessment. The present report includes this new information. Where the results differ significantly from those presented in the draft report, this is noted directly in the text. Also, since 2006, several publications have validated the results presented in the draft report and references to these publications are included in the present version. No further updates of the report are anticipated, but it should be understood that any projections of future conditions are subject to change as understanding of climate change evolves.
This Open File presents the scientific findings of the study and includes data sets that are not archived elsewhere. In addition, workshop reports and documents resulting from the stakeholder engagement process are included.
