AbstractTwo large gas pipeline projects, the Yukon Alaska Highway Pipeline and the Mackenzie Gas Project Pipeline, are under different stages of development in Canada's northwest and sub-Arctic regions. Both proposed pipeline routes cross rugged and harsh environments that encompass permafrost terrain. This paper presents results from landslide inventory, hazard assessment and susceptibility mapping along both corridors. Results from this work will facilitate improved decision-making for planning, constructing, and maintaining safe and economically viable pipeline routes in northern regions of Canada.
