Observed Climate Change Trends in British Columbia

An arial photo of Kwatna Estuary. There is a forest of evergreens to the bottom left, and many streams carving across a green landscape to a larger body of water on the upper right.

Here, we categorize some observed climate change impacts for BC, and specifically the coastal region. Determining trends in climate conditions has been somewhat problematic in BC due to a lack of long-standing empirical data collection and monitoring efforts, especially for the marine system [40]. Nevertheless, information on key climate variables and associated impacts is available with some detail across the region, depending on the impact and spatial scale of the data.
