Development and Testing of Canada-Wide Interpolated Spatial Models of Daily Minimum–Maximum Temperature and Precipitation for 1961–2003
Abstract The application of trivariate thin-plate smoothing splines to the interpolation of daily weather data is investigated. The method was used to develop spatial models of daily minimum andExpand

The development of 1901–2000 historical monthly climate models for Canada and the United States
Abstract Here we present the results of an intensive modelling effort that generated 100 years (1901–2000) of monthly precipitation, and minimum and maximum temperature grids for Canada and theExpand

Potential Impacts of Climate Change on the Distribution of North American Trees
ABSTRACT Currently predicted change in climate could strongly affect plant distributions during the next century. Here we determine the present-day climatic niches for 130 North American treeExpand

Climate Change and Forest Fire Potential in Russian and Canadian Boreal Forests
In this study outputs from four current General Circulation Models (GCMs) were used to project forest fire danger levels in Canada and Russia under a warmer climate. Temperature and precipitationExpand

Anticipating the consequences of climate change for Canada’s boreal forest ecosystems1
Canadian boreal woodlands and forests cover approximately 3.09 × 106 km2, located within a larger boreal zone characterized by cool summers and long cold winters. Warming since the 1850s, increasesExpand

Coarse woody debris in relation to disturbance and forest type in boreal Canada
Abstract We measured volume of coarse woody debris (CWD) in three mature forest types (conifer, mixed, and deciduous), and two disturbance types (burns and clearcuts, both formerly mixed forests) inExpand

A comparison of two statistical methods for spatial interpolation of Canadian monthly mean climate data
Two methods for elevation-dependent spatial interpolation of climatic data from sparse weather station networks were compared. Thirty-year monthly mean minimum and maximum temperature andExpand

Impact of Aligning Climatological Day on Gridding Daily Maximum–Minimum Temperature and Precipitation over Canada
AbstractOn 1 July 1961, the climatological day was redefined to end at 0600 UTC at all principal climate stations in Canada. Prior to that, the climatological day at principal stations ended at 1200Expand

Pest Risk Maps for Invasive Alien Species: A Roadmap for Improvement
Pest risk maps are powerful visual communication tools to describe where invasive alien species might arrive, establish, spread, or cause harmful impacts. These maps inform strategic and tacticalExpand
