Norman Wells-Zama Pipeline Ground Temperature Database
Entry ID: Canada_GSC_NWPipeGrTempData

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset includes ground temperature data from largely shallow (less than
20m depth) boreholes along the Norman Wells Pipeline corridor in the MacKenzie
Valley and northern Alberta, collected since 1984. The data includes readings
obtained manually up to 10 times per year.To look at the response of permafrost
terrain and to anthropogenic and natural disturbances along the pipeline
corridor.
