Found 10 records similar to Aborigines of Canada, Alaska and Greenland
Contained within the 2nd Edition (1915) of the Atlas of Canad, is a map that shows the distribution of 11 aboriginal groups of Canada, Alaska and Greenland, circa 1915. The areas shown in different colours represent land occupied by the native linguistic families. There are a greater number of linguistic families on the Pacific coast of British Columbia than in all the rest of Canada. Major railway systems are shown.
Between 1654 and 1656, except for a few trader's agents, missionaries were the principal explorers in the Iroquois country (an area covering much of present-day southern Ontario). The map shows three explorer routes: Le Moyne (1654), Chaumonot and Ménard (1656) and Chaumonot (1656). The map also shows the extent of territory known to Europeans and the navigation of all exploration routes in the period 1651 to 1760. The historical names found on the map are derived from contemporaneous maps and written documents of the period.
The MODIS surface albedo dataset was produced by the Canada Center for Remote Sensing (CCRS), Natural Resources Canada. The dataset represents the solar shortwave broadband surface albedo and it is at a 10-day interval covering the entire Canadian landmass as well as northern USA, Alaska, and the Greenland. The dataset was derived from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) onboard the TERRA satellite which provides a global coverage every 1-2 days in 36 spectral bands ranging from visible to infrared and to thermal wavelengths between 405 and 14,385 nm, and was available since 2000. For the estimation of surface albedo, the first seven spectral bands of B1 to B7 ranging from 459 nm to 2155 nm were used.
Contained within the 5th Edition (1978 to 1995) of the National Atlas of Canada is a map that shows glaciers, iceberg sources and iceberg drift patterns for Canada and Greenland; names major glaciers and icecaps.
Annual estimates of the number of census families on July 1st, Canada, provinces and territories.
Contained within the 1st Edition (1906) of the Atlas of Canada is a plate that shows five maps illustrating international and interprovincial boundary claims. Two show the Quebec - New Brunswick - Maine area, and another displays the Canada - Labrador boundary. There are two small maps showing offshore claims; one for the Bay of Fundy, and the other for the Gulf Islands (San Juan) in the Strait of Georgia. The Eastern Canada- United States boundary was commonly called the 'Marine boundary' from 1783 to 1842.
The data set provides official information from the Government of Canada pertaining to the imports of Dairy Products into Canada, subject to controls under Canada's Export and Import Permits Act (EIPA). Available reports provide data: on Tariff Rate Quota Table on Cream, Powdered Whey, Butter and Fats and Oils from Milk on a year-to-date basis (August 1st to July 31st); on Tariff Rate Quota Utilization for Dairy Products on a year-to-date basis (January 1st to December 31st); on Tariff Rate Quota Utilization for Milk Protein Substances on a year-to-date basis (April 1st to March 31st); and, on Tariff Rate Quota Utilization for Cheese on a year-to-date basis (January 1st to December 31st).
Contained within the 4th Edition (1974) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the locations of occupied Indian Reserves, settlements and other communities. For each of the locations plotted, the major linguistic groups for the communities are denoted as a percentage of the total number of registered Indians in Canada as of 1969 along with the names of the Bands participating in these linguistic groups. A small supplementary map image shows the extent of major linguistic groups throughout Canada.
Greenland Sharks (Somniosus microcephalus) are estimated to have the highest longevity of any invertebrate (392 ± 120 years), making bycatch a significant concern (Nielsen et al. 2016). However, in the Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) region, accurate estimates of bycatch are not often available for the species (Simpson et al. 2021).
Contained within the 5th Edition (1978 to 1995) of the National Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the extent of exploration during this period for Canada, and adjacent areas of the United States and Greenland; data depicted are the routes of explorers, extent of territory known to Europeans, and settlement by Europeans. Table gives details journeys of exploration and their motives.
