Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This poster summarizes research activities funded by the Program for Energy Research and Development in collaboration with the Yukon Geological Survey, University of Ottawa, and Simon Fraser University. Filling knowledge gaps related to permafrost, landslides, and earthquake hazards for a potential pipeline route along the Alaska Highway Corridor will provide baseline geoscience information to support engineering design, environmental assessment and regulatory processes, and development of environmental monitoring and management programs to ensure environmental effects are minimized. Fieldwork results (summers 2011-12) are presented for 1) Permafrost characterization, 2) Landslide distribution, 3) Qualitative landslide susceptibility mapping in permafrost terrain, and 4) Denali fault investigations.
