This first Canadian version builds upon the attempted and demonstrated strengths of the Ahrens Meteorology sequence and gives a extra appropriate source for Canadian scholars and teachers by way of making sure that Canadian content material, practices, conventions, and examples are used throughout.
An Earth structures characteristic — the 1st of its type in Ahrens — has been constructed for this variation, proposing the interconnectedness of components, and delivering a peek on the bankruptcy content material. This "visual desk of contents" highlights the Earth approach elements mirrored in every one bankruptcy (the surroundings; hydrosphere, cryosphere, lithosphere, biosphere and anthrosphere). The relationships among the chapter's content material and Earth structures are additional accelerated upon within the creation of every chapter.
Unique Canadian content material during this first version includes:
• Canadian Air Mass/Front version and outlines of the Canadian forecast system
• North American climate and weather maps
• Canadian climate proof, significant climate occasions, and documents set in a world context

• Tephigrams used to evaluate balance are explained
• Inclusion of Canadian examples from coast to coast
• Marine influences/climates
• British Columbia's temperate rainforest
• Alberta's Chinook
• Prairies as a breeding floor for thunderstorms
• summer time warmth in southern Ontario and jap Quebec

1998; Patenaude et al. 2002; O’Flaherty et al. 2008). 8 Combining TEK and Scientific Knowledge Botanists were among the first researchers to show an interest in TEK during the eighteenth century. TEK remained their domain for most of the nineteenth and twentieth century. However, the 1990s saw a renewed and increased interest in TEK which expanded beyond local indigenous groups and the researchers working with those communities (Agrawal 1995). This renewal of interest helped spur on the creation of related international organisations such as the Traditional Ecological Knowledge Working Group of the IUCN and other large scale projects such as UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (Posey 1999).

This knowledge can then benefit society through agriculture, habitat restauration, the study of environmental impacts of development projects and in resource management (Menzies 2006). In North America, contrary to popular belief developed during the colonial period, many hunter-gatherer groups practice a complex management of their habitat using fire succession cycles, a rotation in resource exploitation as well as other tools and techniques (Cronon 1983; Turner 1999; Johnson 1999; Davidson-Hunt 2003).
