AbstractThis report presents a summary of field activities conducted in 2014 in the Mackenzie corridor, N.W.T. Air temperature, ground thermal and active layer data acquired from permafrost monitoring sites visited in 2014 throughout the corridor are presented in graphical and tabular format. The ground temperature records for selected sites for 2007-14 are also provided and indicate that some permafrost warming has occurred. The data presented provide essential baseline information that can be utilized by stakeholders and others for various purposes such as land management activities, regulatory processes and design of northern infrastructure. This report will be distributed to community organizations and stakeholders in the study region to provide an update on field activities.
