AbstractThis report presents a summary of field activities conducted in 2015 in the Mackenzie corridor, Northwest Territories (NWT). Air temperature, ground thermal and active layer data acquired from permafrost monitoring sites visited in 2015 throughout the corridor are provided in graphical and tabular format. Ground temperature records for the 2007-2015 period are also presented and indicate that permafrost is currently warmer at the majority of sites than the baseline established during the International Polar Year (2007-09). 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.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This report presents a summary of field activities conducted in 2015 in the Mackenzie Corridor, Northwest Territories. Air temperature, ground thermal and active layer data acquired from permafrost monitoring sites visited in 2015 throughout the corridor are provided in graphical and tabular format. Information about the changes in ground temperatures and active layer thickness over time is also presented. This report will be distributed to community organizations and stakeholders in the study region to provide an update on field activities. The ground thermal and active layer data presented provide essential baseline information that can be utilized by stakeholders and others for purposes such as land management activities, regulatory processes and design of northern infrastructure.
