Abstract:

This map depicts the distribution, characteristics, and boundaries of permafrost and ground ice in Canada. Permafrost classification is based on the proportion of land that is underlain by permafrost within a a given area.Canada was divided into physiographic units, and each unit was classified in terms of permafrost extent and ground ice content. The map shows mountain permafrost as sporadic or isolated discontinuous permafrost, rather than as a separate category. This map can be found in the The National Atlas of Canada, 5th Edition (1978-95) published by Natural Resources Canada. The map and descriptive information was taken from the National Atlas of Canada website http://atlas.gc.ca. © 2002.
