AbstractNatural Resources Canada (NRCan) and the Northwest Territories Geological Survey (NTGS), in collaboration with the former Environment and Conservation Division of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), the Government of the Northwest Territories Departments of Transportation, and Environment and Natural Resources, as well as BGC Engineering Inc., have conducted a field initiative to collect baseline geoscience data in support of the land-based transportation project in the Climate Change Geoscience Program (NRCan). The present initiative is focused on addressing transportation risk in the arctic to climatic sensitivity (TRACS) in the Great Slave region. In this report, air, ground surface, near-surface, and shallow ground temperature data collected between 2010 and 2015 are presented. This report is an output of the NTGS's NWT Permafrost Database project and contains digital ground temperature data.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and the Northwest Territories Geological Survey conducted a field initiative to collect baseline geoscience data in support of the land-based transportation project in the Climate Change Geoscience Program (NRCan). The present initiative is focused on addressing transportation risk in the Arctic to climatic sensitivity (TRACS) in the Great Slave region. In this report, air, near-surface, active layer and deeper ground temperature data collected since 2010 are presented. This report is also an output of the NWT Permafrost Database project.
