Coastal and Inland Weather Contrasts in the Canadian Arctic

By C. I. Jackson

Abstract

A record of surface weather was maintained at the Canadian IGY base at Lake Itazen, Ellesmere Island, from August 1957 to August 1958. This is the first such record from the interior of any of the Canadian Arctic Islands and shows great differences from the permanent stations on the coasts. Winter temperatures were very much colder, and winds were very light, even during severe gales elsewhere. It is suggested that a continuing record from this or a similar location would be of great value, particularly if upper air soundings were also made
