AbstractIn northern Canada, ground temperatures are measured for a number of reasons including permafrost research and infrastructure development. A protocol for reporting metadata on ground temperature datasets will allow data to be easily shared between various stakeholders, and is a necessary step towards a permafrost database. We outline a metadata protocol for ground temperature measurements developed through collaboration with both users and collectors of ground temperature measurements. Our collaborators are typically involved with: permafrost research and modelling, geotechnical engineering, and infrastructure performance monitoring. Our metadata protocol is divided into seven sections: (1) Project Details; (2) Location of Ground Temperature Measurements; (3) Installation of Ground Temperature Cable; (4) Ground Temperature Record; (5) Site Conditions; (6) Permafrost Conditions; and (7) Related Publications and Data.
