Abstract

Human-induced climatic warming will have major impacts on permafrost, which presently underlies half of Canada's land mass. The extent of permafrost will diminish, accompanied by modifications of the land surface through thermokarst or mass wasting. Streamflow regimes, sediment transport, coastal flooding and erosion will be affected. The magnitude of most components of the water balance will be altered
