AbstractThe Geological Survey of Canada collaborated with communities and the Government of Nunavut Departments of Environment and community and Government Services to establish six new permafrost monitoring sites in communities in the Baffin Region. The new monitoring sites provide information to improve the characterization of permafrost thermal state and terrain sensitivity in the communities. Initial data from 2008-2009 are now available from the monitoring sites that indicate that mean annual ground temperatures range from -5.2°C in the southern Baffin Region at Pangnirtung to -12.3°C at Resolute.
