Transcript of Arctic Cordillera
Soils,Vegetation, and Wildlife

Significant geographical/historical fun facts
Mountains that pass 2km in height
the northern area is mostly covered with ice caps
glaciers are common in the southern area
the Arctic Cordillera has some of the tallest mountains
highest point is Mount Asgard
The Arctic Cordillera is located in the northeast perimeter
of Nunavut and Labrador. Especially in Ellesmere and
About a thousand people live in the Arctic Cordillera, and most of the humans that live in the Arctic Cordillera are the Inuit. The major cities of the Arctic Cordillera are Pond Inlet, Clyde River, and Broughton Island(Qikiqtarjuaq).
In the Arctic Cordillera it rains the most in July and it rains the least in June. The coldest month is January and March and the warmest month is July.
Calved ice from glacier
Granitic and metamorphic rock
The Arctic Cordillera has many Landforms such as:
summer temperature matter -2 degrees
in the winter the temperatures are low as -35 degrees Celsius
most of the precipitation is snow
in the north precipitation 200mm is the average amount of precipitation
Labrador can get 600mm of precipitation each year
winter is longer than summer
the arctic wolf
the collared lemming
furry-legged rock ptarmigan
red knot, black guillemot
common ringed plover
little ringed plover
Since the Arctic Cordillera is really cold and dry the
soil turns into permafrost. The soil rarely defrosts.
The collared lemming
Arctic white heather
Glacial ice and sea ice are melting and the permafrost is defrosting. The permafrost is releasing greenhouse gases. Many living things are finding it hard to adapt the increasing changes. All of wildlife in the arctic relies on sea-ice. For example Walrus are having a hard time without sea ice because they haul out sea ice floating close to land. If humans burn fossils, oil, and gas to create electricity and power vehicles.
