Northern Climate Data Report and Inventory (NCDRI)

Welcome to the NCDRI, which is Phase 2 of the Northern Climate Data Working Group (NCDWG) Project

The purpose of the NCDWG Phase 1 was to “identify, inventory, and characterize existing datasets for future development of products for various local and regional applications related to climate-change adaptation decision-making in the Canadian North”. Phase 1 work and results are summarized in a report (Diaconescu et al., 2022).

The purpose of Phase 2 is to put this report into a flexible and accessible format. Making this information more accessible is intended to help service organizations, researchers, community planners, and consultants more effectively use available northern climate data, for their work in adaptation, planning, and analysis

Please watch the video on this home page for additional information on how to use the NCDRI. Share your comments and impressions through the feedback links; we look forward to hearing from you!

This online phase was created by University of Toronto and supported by the Canadian Centre for Climate Services (CCCS) of Environment and Climate Change Canada as part of its efforts to provide Canadians with easy access to climate related data. Click here to learn more about the CCCS services.
