AbstractThe Geological Survey of Canada, of Natural Resources Canada, and Indian and Northern Affairs Canada conducted a field program between 2006 and 2010 to address gaps in baseline environmental information in the northern Mackenzie Corridor. Ground thermal data were collected from seven sites along the proposed hydrocarbon development corridor between Inuvik and the Niglingtak anchor field. In addition, soil samples were collected at six new field sites for laboratory testing. Geotechnical and geochemical information, together with near-surface and ground temperature data from these sites has been compiled in a relational database presented. Graphic presentations of the data are provided along with information on site characteristics and photographs. Also provided are ground penetrating radar profiles acquired from some of these sites, and from related terrain. The data provide useful baseline information to users including those involved in planning northern development, infrastructure design and the regulatory process.
