The magnetic field of the Earth is influenced by the electromagnetic environment of the solar system. The disturbed interplanetary environment changes the conditions of the natural electromagnetic environment of our planet and affects normal operation of space and ground technological infrastructures, such as power grids and pipelines.Geomagnetic activity can be described by the sizes of the disturbances in the Earth magnetic field and how often they occur. Geomagnetic activity depends on the geographic location of the observing point. It is defined by the geometry of the Earth’s geomagnetic field and its interaction with both the charged particles produced by the Sun and the solar/interplanetary magnetic field fluctuations.

The GO Canada initiative is a project that brings together a variety of space weather research tools and infrastructure. This network of ground-based instruments (more than 120 as of June 2019) that monitor space weather over Canada's North collects geospatial data, conducts scientific research and turns scientific knowledge into applications that benefit Canadians.

564 datasets of hourly meteorological data for all of Canada from various periods (1998 to 2017). The values of the records for solar irradiance are primarily based on satellite-derived solar estimates. This dataset has been updated with the most recent changes made in July 2020. The solar values in these files are based on a 10 km grid spacing for Canada South of 58° N, and at a 100 km grid spacing for North of 58° N.

Refer to Data Resources below for additional information on the CWEEDS file format.

Data on the depth of freezing and thawing in road pavements that are managed by the Ministère des Transports (MTQ). Since the winter period 2008-2009, these data have been calculated using temperature measurements recorded by road weather stations spread across the Quebec highway network. In particular, these stations are equipped with a 3.0 m long probe allowing the hourly average temperature to be measured at various levels in the roadway. Average values for freezing and thawing depths are then calculated on a daily basis. It should be considered that the data are specific to the location and date of the measurement only. Any interpretation of the continuity of measurements in space and time is left to the discretion of the user. It is also important to note that the start and end dates of load restriction periods take into account a combination of factors, including the location of the stations on the road network and the spatial representativeness of the measurements.**This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).**

Data collected between 1989 and 2007. Riometers passively monitor radio noise from extrasolar
sources and have been shown to be an effective way to
monitor high-energy electron populations in the region of
space around the Earth. Data is in text (.txt) format. .tar.gz files are compressed archives.

These stations provided both high-density spacing and high-frequency minute-by-minute observations. Standard meteorological variables were reported—atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction, relative humidity, temperature and precipitation amounts—as well as a new element recorded by a black globe thermometer, used in the evaluation of heat stress on the human body. The new automated surface weather stations were configured to report every minute, a sharp departure from the standard hourly reporting.

It is for this reason that the Phoenix robotic spacecraft landed on Mars in 2008 in order to search for environments suitable for microbial life on Mars, and to research the history of water there. The Canadian Space Agency provided for this multi-agency program a meteorological station (MET), including an innovative laser-based atmospheric sensor. Throughout the course of the Phoenix mission which is now over, MET recorded the daily weather of the northern plains of Mars using temperature and pressure sensors, as well as a light detection and ranging (LIDAR) instrument.

The Greening Government Strategy establishes climate and environmental commitments for the Government of Canada’s internal operations. The Government of Canada’s operations will be net-zero emissions by 2050 including:

• Government owned and leased real property
• Mobility: fleets, business travel and commuting
• Procurement of goods and services
• National safety and security (NSS) operations

To implement net-zero in real property and fleet operations, the Government of Canada will reduce absolute Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions by 40% by 2025 and at least 90% below 2005 levels by 2050. On this emissions reduction pathway, the government will aspire to reduce emissions by an additional 10% each 5 years starting in 2025. The Government of Canada tracks its energy use and its GHG emissions across 27 departments and agencies.

The main purpose of the Conservation Atlas of Wetlands is to develop a portrait of the wetlands of the St. Lawrence Valley using innovative mapping methods in order to favor bird conservation by helping land managers to make decisions about land use and bird habitat conservation. Another objective was to develop methods needed to allow a monitoring of the St. Lawrence Valley wetlands and make a link to a potential national mapping project of that type as an indicator on environment quality in Canada. The Atlas is considered a large-scale project because of the area covered, the great variability in the area’s characteristics and the various types of wetlands encountered. Using Canadian RADARSAT satellite images, along with other sources of information available (e.g., digital hydrological and hypsometric data) and data from Landsat-TM images, the mapping has required certain adjustments and the use of innovative methods.
