Hazard Mapping in Yukon Communities

September 15, 2016

Researchers from the Northern Climate ExChange have released a set of hazard maps and reports covering 8 Yukon communities. The project, initiated in 2010, identified hazards related to permafrost, landslides, and flooding by considering both current conditions and future climate variability. All of the maps are available on the Yukon College Research Centre website.

Water Data Catalogue Updated

August 4, 2016

This year’s update of the water data catalogue includes the addition of two new networks: Water Licence Water Quality (WLWQ) and Water Resources Groundwater Monitoring (WRGM). This addition results in around 800 new sampling sites plotted on the interactive map. The large increase in sampling sites (catalogue total to 2310), is primarily due to the inclusion of the WLWQ network. Samples included in the WLWQ Network are primarily comprised of surface and groundwater chemistry data submitted to the Yukon Water Board as required within water licenses. Click on the ‘View Water Data Catalogue’ button on the right of this page to check out the new networks.
