Knowing the negative impacts of extreme climatic events not only helps us prepare for future events, it also allows us to take advantage of the positive impacts.
SRC’s Climatology team develops, tests and transfers climatic information, which can lead to environmental, economic and social benefits for Saskatchewan and the world.

SRC participated in a case study that examined the energy sector's response to extreme weather events in the Souris River Watershed. View the final reports (right click on links below to save and download):
- Report Summary Fact Sheet: Past, Present and Future Climatic Extremes and the Vulnerability to the Energy Sector in the Canadian Portion of the Souris River Watershed.
- Future Flood and Drought Risk Assessment - Souris River Watershed
- Historic Climate Trends - Souris River Watershed

Knowing when the sun is shining is valuable data used by various industries and sectors, such as agriculture, tourism and insurance. Learn how SRC records bright sunshine hours at both Climate Reference Stations on our blog.
Investigating how climate affects our society, economy and environment, we study the effects of hazards, including droughts, excessive moisture, extreme heat and extreme cold. We look at their resulting influences on agriculture, forestry, health, water and communities.
Vulnerability, Impacts and Adaptation
We provide climatic impact assessments and adaptation strategies for the resource and environmental sectors. This process involves assessing climatic factors that affect socioeconomic and ecological systems.
Monitoring Climate Variability
Monitoring climate variability is accomplished by using SRC’s two Climate Reference Stations (CRS)
, located in Saskatoon and south of Prince Albert, SK. These stations provide Saskatchewan with comprehensive climate variability data.
