Climate-Related Hazards

Along its coasts, Canada is facing a wide range of hazards, including flooding by storm surges and tsunami, coastal erosion and subsidence. In the Arctic, there are additional concerns over loss of glacier and sea ice and permafrost. This research theme will advance monitoring of temporal changes in land, water and ice masses, as well as the hazards resulting from such changes, by integrating data from multiple satellite missions with CCArray observations using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers and devices for precise measurement of Earth’s gravitational field.
