Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Since 2013, ground temperature cables (GTCs) have been installed along the ITH corridor, prior to and following highway construction, primarily in geotechnical boreholes drilled for the purpose of terrain stability analysis. Data collection was initially led by Government of Northwest Territories (GNWT) Department of Infrastructure and now involves additional collaborators including the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC).The objective of this joint report is to synthesize metadata and initial data associated with most of these ground temperature monitoring activities. Geotechnical data and additional contextual information for most of these monitoring sites are provided by Ensom et al. (2019). The principal investigators include the Northwest Territories Geological Survey (NTGS), Dr. Peter Morse of the GSC, and GNWT Infrastructure.
