Transcript of Southeastern Climate Region

Southeastern Climate Region
The Southeastern Climate Region of Canada is one of the eight climate regions, located- if it wasn't obvious- around Canada's southeastern border. It's a continental climate zone, meaning that it has a wide range of temperature, usually ranging from around -15°C to 18°C. Now, I'll go into more in-depth information on Canada's climate region.
Geography
The Southeastern Climate Region of Canada is one of the eight climate regions, located- if it wasn't obvious- around Canada's southeastern border. It's a continental climate zone, meaning that it has a wide range of temperature, usually ranging from around -15°C to 18°C. Now, I'll go into more in-depth information on Canada's climate region.
Welcome to Canada's Southeastern Climate Region!
Climate
The Southeastern Climate Region of Canada is continental climate region, meaning that it has a wide range of average temperature. This zone goes through wet, cold winters and dry, hot summers, often reaching temperature extremes in doing so. The region is rather centralized, meaning that it recieves warm and cold currents from the Atlantic, Arctic and Pacific Oceans. The climate also does not recieve a large amount of precipitation due to the fact that many ocean currents have to travel longer distances to affect it.
Past Events
- One of the most destructive and fearsome ice storms in Canada's history- the alleged "Ice Storm of the Century" occurred on January 4-9th, 1998. It created hardship for 4 million people, cut power for times of hours to weeks and cost Canada $3,000,000,000 to fix.
- One of the lowest recorded temperatures in Canada was in this region, reaching −58.3°C.
- One of the highest recorded temperatures in Canada was in this region as well, reaching 42.2°C.
Future Predictions
Due to the trends noticed in the Southeastern Climate Region, I've devised three potential results of time bearing down on the region.

- Firstly, I believe that the population of the region will start rising to the point where urban expansion may be necessary, potentially destroying habitats.
- Secondly, I believe that with global warming's constant and increasing heat-trapping effect on Earth, ocean currents might change, and therefore make the shifts in climate that the region goes through more drastic due to warm and cold fronts from the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic Ocean.
- Finally, I believe that the potentially more drastic climates could mean that both the vegetation and animal population of Canada could differ from what it is now, or was a century ago. This would be because while some animals and plants would no longer be able to to survive and/ord thrive in Canada's clhanged climate, new animals and plants will be able to survive and perhaps thrive in their place, being able to adapt to Canada's new climate. In a word, darwinism.
Interesting Facts
- Over half of Canada's population occupies the Southeastern Climate Region
- Due to it's very continental characteristics, many of Canada's most extreme temperatures have occurred here.
