Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Presently, no comprehensive view exists of the relations between permafrost and hydrogeology in varying Northern conditions. Similarly, the responses with climate change remain poorly understood. These are critical knowledge gaps, as climate change impacts on permafrost are likely to alter hydrologic cycles, groundwater flow networks, and surface water supplies. Communities, governments, regulators, industry, and academics are noting process changes in the North. Regulators need guidance on how to scope groundwater and permafrost issues as they affect economic development. Northern capacity to address issues facing Northern society is limited, so knowledge must come through collaboration and engagement. A meeting of 27 government, academic, and industry researchers and practitioners was held to address these issues. A plan was developed to scope out the State of Knowledge on permafrost and hydrogeology interactions. This report documents meeting-related materials and minutes.
