Predicted Temperatures And precipitation

Auyuittuq parks climate is extremely harsh,complex and variable.

It also has really short days(mainly winter) summer is very short and cool temperatures.

Auyuittuq also has very strong winds.

And very high latitude location of Auyuittuq, major air masses, and pressure systems.

Local weather patterns are affected by ruggedness of the mountains normally scatter storm systems and cause formation and precipitation.

Predicted Temperatures And Precipitation

Global Warming effects the climate by making it warmer year-round and increasing precipitation.


1.)Winter and spring warming between 3 and 10 degrees Celsius will (unfortunately) lead to earlier melting in spring.

Fall ice formation,longer ice free seasons on lakes and rivers, on sea,their is also changes in permafrost layers. More precipitation in winter will lead to wet snow and ice accumulation.


2.)Increases in summer precipitation may lead to more cloudy conditions, with low solar radiation.

Increased iceberg calving and warmer summer air conditions may induce more coastal fog and melting may lower salinity in surface waters of Fjords.


3.)Water levels of the rivers and lakes in ANP may also increase due to the increased volume of spring melt, summer glacier melt, and summer precipitation

Spring flows also occur slightly earlier in the year in the year(june-instead of july) These may lead to increased flooding and erosion.

That's it!

I hope you enjoyed this site and learned alot from all this abundant information.

Hope to see you at Auyittuq National park. And remember to take care of wildlife and prevent global warming.
