The climatic regions of the province play a role in determining Nova Scotia's resource base for agriculture, fishing, forestry, recreation, and tourism. Our settlement trends, the types of activities we choose and the technology used to accomplish them relate to climate and the availability of resources.
The climate of an area changes naturally in short-term fluctuations and over extended periods of time. These changes can be measured by the variations from average conditions. Recently, documented changes in global climatic trends have caused concern that some human activities may be rapidly modifying the composition of the earth's atmosphere and changing global, and possibly local, climate.
