Canada – May 25th, 2013

Sediments can be seen between the southern shores of Akimiski Island and mainland Ontario, Canada. It is the largest island in James Bay, a southeasterly extension of Hudson Bay.

Scientists have found evidence of warming in western Hudson Bay and cooling in the east, and of earlier ice-breakup at lakes southwest of Hudson Bay. They also presented evidence of increasing annual precipitation with trends toward greater precipitation in spring, summer, and autumn (click here for more information).
