Runoff in northern Canada has been increasing at a rate of 8.4 km3 yr-1 yr-1 from 1989 to 2013. This rate of increase is similar to the trend for 16 Eurasian rivers for the period from 1964 to 2000 indicating this seems to be a pan-Arctic trend. The authors stress “that it remains important to continue to monitor river discharge in northern Canada (and expand where possible to attain WMO standards) as 15 this region is expected to continue warming rapidly in the twenty-first century.”
