Monitoring Programs Sponsored by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and their Relevance to Climate Change CCRR 38

Summary

The focus of this report is to describe the relevance of monitoring programs sponsored by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources by (1) identifying key natural resource-related indicators that can be used to measure climate change and its effects, (2) evaluating ongoing long-term monitoring programs to identify those that support indicators of change, (3) determining where information to support indicators is lacking, and (4) providing recommendations on how to improve the monitoring of climate change effects. Since this report was completed, effort is now underway to analyze priority indicators identified in this exercise by using MNRF long-term monitoring data and exploring climate change trends.
