Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
This open file reports on recent geoscience data collected and monitoring sites installed by the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) in collaboration with Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC), Northwest Territories Geoscience Office (NTGO), Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) and the Department of Transport (DOT), BGC Engineering Inc., Carleton University, and the University of Ottawa. The report represents the first of several co-published GSC / NTGO Open File reports under the Climate Change Geoscience Program.
A 2010-11 field program under the Transportation Risk in the Arctic to Climatic Sensitivity (TRACS) activity in the Climate Change Geoscience Program included extensive fieldwork in the Yellowknife area between June and September, 2010. Field data collection by the Geological Survey of Canada and Carleton University included 14 CRREL-cored boreholes and ecological descriptions at 48 sites. An additional 20 ecological site descriptions were made by University of Ottawa students. Collaborative work with BGC Engineering Inc. included field observations and soil analysis (grain size and Atterberg limits) at test pits along Highway 3, and 15 water-jet drilled holes for subsequent temperature cable installations. Numerous temperature measurement sites were also established with AANDC along a 170 km transect between Behchoko and Tibbitt Lake including six air temperature sites, six multi-channel near-surface temperature sites and seven water temperature sites. In March 2011, additional field data were collected including snow depths at 45 sites, densities at 18 sites, and ice thicknesses at eight pond sites. Snow depth transect surveys were also conducted at 11 sites along Highway 3, across the highway embankments and right-of-ways. These data were collected in order to provide baseline information regarding the nature and properties of permafrost in the Yellowknife area.
