Abstract:

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).

Purpose:

Scientific Research
