AbstractThe Geological Survey of Canada collaborated with Nunavut communities and the government of Nunavut to establish 10 permafrost monitoring sites. The monitoring sites provide information to improve the characterization of permafrost thermal state and terrain sensitivity in the communities. Five years of permafrost temperature data indicate that mean annual permafrost temperatures range from -5.2°C in Pangnirtung to -12.3°C in Resolute Bay. Since the start of the monitoring, ground temperatures have warmed between 0.03°C/year to 0.25°C/year with an average of 0.14°C/year for all sites.
