This global dataset contains monthly, seasonal and annual statistics mean and maximum of significant wave height Hs that were produced using a statistical modelling approach and the 6-hourly sea level pressure SLP fields simulated by 20 global climate models participated in the Coupled Climate Model Comparison Phase 5 CMIP5 project for the historical period 1950-2005 and for two different future emission scenarios RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 .
Wang et al. 2014 - Changes in global ocean wave heights as projected using multimodel CMIP5 simulations. Geophysical Research Letters, 41, 1026-1034, doi:10.1002/2013GL058650.
Osteoporosis is a major public health concern in Canada and worldwide, and is common among older people and women. As Canada’s population ages, the prevalence of osteoporosis is predicted to increase. To learn more about the burden of osteoporosis, primary complications, bone health promotion strategies and the osteoporosis care gap in Canada, please visit the newly released infographic Osteoporosis and related fractures in Canada, 2021 from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). This infographic provides an update on key findings from PHAC’s 2020 report Osteoporosis and related fractures in Canada: Report from the Canadian Chronic Disease Surveillance System (CCDSS) 2020 using the most recent data available in the CCDSS.
This data provides the integrated cadastral framework for the specified Canada Land. The cadastral framework consists of active and superseded cadastral parcel, roads, easements, administrative areas, active lines, points and annotations. The cadastral lines form the boundaries of the parcels. COGO attributes are associated to the lines and depict the adjusted framework of the cadastral fabric.
This data blog presents statistics on suicide mortality, suicidal ideation, and self-inflicted injury hospitalizations in Canada. The economic burden of suicide and self-harm is highlighted, as are age and sex differences.
Age and Sex Highlight Tables, for Canada, provinces and territories, 2011 and 2006 censuses - Provides information highlights by topic via key indicators for various levels of geography.
Data includes: * board information * school information * grade 3 and 6 EQAO student achievements for reading, writing and mathematics * grade 9 EQAO academic and applied student achievements * grade 10 OSSLT student achievement * student demographic percentages on student parents, special education, first language spoken and new students to Canada, This data is shown as reported by: * Board School Identification Database (BSID)/Ontario School Information System (OnSIS) as updated/maintained by boards March 2022 * OnSIS Preliminary 2019-2020 (Student Population) * Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) (2018-2019) * 2016 Census Note: *Preliminary as of March 19, 2021, with all schools that met identified criteria with signed-off submissions. This information is also available on the Ministry of Education's School Information Finder website by individual school. How Are We Protecting Privacy? Results for OnSIS and Statistics Canada variables are suppressed based on school population size to better protect student privacy. In order to achieve this additional level of protection, the Ministry has used a methodology that randomly rounds a percentage either up or down depending on school enrolment.
The National Air Photo Library (NAPL) of Natural Resources Canada archives over 6 million aerial photographs covering all of Canada, some of which date back to the 1920s. This collection includes Time Series of aerial orthophoto mosaics over a selection of major cities or targeted areas that allows to observe various changes that occurs overtime in those selected regions. These mosaics are disseminated through the Data Cube Platform implemented by NRCan using geospatial big data management technologies. These technologies enable the rapid and efficient visualization of high-resolution geospatial data and allow for the rapid generation of dynamically derived products.
In 2014, the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) initiated a Play-Based Regulation (PBR) pilot project as a step towards implementation of the Unconventional Regulatory Framework. One of the goals of the PBR pilot is to encourage companies in the unconventional play area to work together on plans for surface development to minimize the numbers of facilities and surface impacts. This dataset is one of a series created using earth observation imagery to assess surface change caused by energy exploration. The PBR area extends from Twp.
The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The International comparison of urban air quality indicators compare ambient levels (concentrations) of air pollutants in selected Canadian urban areas with levels in selected international urban areas. The indicators report the concentration of ground-level ozone (as the annual average of the daily maximum 8-hour average), fine particulate matter, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide (as the annual average of the daily 24-hour average) in ambient air. These indicators are intended to provide a general comparison of ambient levels of air pollutants in selected Canadian urban areas with those measured in other international urban areas.
This dataset contains adjusted daily rainfall (R) and snowfall (S) data from all Canadian stations reporting rainfall and snowfall for which we have metadata to do the adjustments. The processing includes inspection and adjustment using quality control procedures customized for producing gridded datasets, including: (1) conversion of snowfalls to their water equivalents; (2) corrections for gauge undercatch and evaporation due to wind effect, for gauge specific wetting loss, and for trace precipitation amount (same as in Mekis and Vincent, 2011); (3) treatment of flags (e.g. accumulation flags). A total of 2146 stations were processed; their record lengths vary from 3 to167 years.
