Abstract

The A. distinguishes water balance, run-off and temperatures of the different mountain ranges of British Columbia, Alberta and the Yukon. Global warning is expected to increase precipitation and to speed up erosion processes. Glaciers, permafrost and vegetation will lag for centuries in responding to these changes. - (DWG)
