WORK done by the Iron Ore Company of Canada and members of the McGill Sub-Arctic Research Laboratory since has indicated that permafrost is much more extensive south Mining activities in Labrador-Ungava. By Graham. Humphrys. Abstract. The role of farming in promoting the expansion of the pioneer frontier is today being taken over by the mining industries, which are leap-frogging the present limits of agriculture and establishing small urban communities in otherwise uninhabited landscapes. Nowhere are better

Climatological investigations were conducted from to in the central Mealy Mountains, Labrador (° N), as part of interdisciplinary research on tree line ecology and climate ://   Intensive investigations for several decades culminated in in the publication of a detailed map of geocryological regionalization and classification. From this map, it is estimated that permafrost covers approximately 23% of the country. About 80% of China's permafrost is mountain ://
