Group: Summary

   This data set consists of soil temperature and stratigraphy data from 36 sites 
   from the Alaska/Yukon border east to Baffin Island, and down to Labrador.  
   Site stratigraphy and temperature were measured to appx 15 m.  The data set 
   also includes pile installation data and pile load test data (for 
   approximately 200 tests).
