Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Knowledge of the thermal and geotechnical properties of subsurface materials is critical for planning infrastructure development in permafrost regions. Data from borehole logs acquired during geotechnical investigations and scientific research projects can further support engineering design and adaptation of infrastructure to climate change. Although such geotechnical borehole information is currently available in published database compilations, such as Geological Survey of Canada Open Files, much of these data are in various formats, often in print form and not digitally accessible. A pilot project has been initiated to develop a Permafrost Information Network (PIN) to compile and increase the accessibility of available records.
The pilot project will make use of existing web architecture developed for the Groundwater Information Network (GIN), which connects a variety of groundwater information from federal, provincial, and territorial sources. The goal of the PIN pilot project is to adapt the existing GIN capabilities for permafrost-related information, allowing users to view borehole locations, geotechnical properties, and stratigraphy through a web application, and download the data for analysis. At the end of the initial testing phase, a limited amount of geotechnical information will be available through PIN. The future goal is to collaborate with additional data holders and connect to their data compilations through PIN applications. This will allow federal and territorial organizations to make new information publicly available on an ongoing basis. Other types of information such as ground temperature records (time series data) can be incorporated into PIN in the future.
Through multi-agency collaboration, the PIN initiative can address a critical need to increase access to baseline information to support decision making in northern Canada. It can also contribute to a broader objective of developing a Canadian geoscience information network.
Résumé(Résumé en langage clair et simple, non publié)
Cette affiche fournira de l'information sur un projet pilote visant à utiliser un cadre Web existant pour fournir un accès en ligne aux données du pergélisol. La phase d'essai initiale utilisant les bases de données géotechniques de forage publiées sera décrite, ce qui rendra plus facile l'information sur les matériaux souterrains et les conditions de glace au sol, y compris celles qui sont impliquées dans le développement des infrastructures et la planification de l'adaptation au changement climatique. L'affiche décrira également les étapes futures du développement d'un réseau d'information sur le pergélisol.
