Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) conducted field work to study winter permafrost and hydrogeological interactions in support of the Permafrost Hydrogeology activity in the Climate Change Geoscience Program. This abstract presents field observations of a processes and subsequently develops a hypothesis to be tested.
