AbstractA field campaign was conducted in 2012-2017 to collect baseline geoscience data to determine air, surface, and near-surface ground temperature conditions along the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road (TCWR), Great Slave region, Northwest Territories. This field initiative was conducted in support of Natural Resources Canada's Climate Change Geoscience Program project entitled Transportation Risk in the Arctic to Climatic Sensitivity. Thermal data are presented in a digital format that can be utilized for assessments of permafrost sensitivity to climate change and for infrastructure planning.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) conducted a field initiative to collect baseline geoscience data in support of the land-based transportation project in the Climate Change Geoscience Program. 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, and active-layer temperature data collected from 2012 to 2016 are presented.
