Group: Summary

   This data set consists of ground temperature data from 192 boreholes in the 
   area of Schefferville, Quebec (54°48'N, 66°50'W), located within the 
   discontinuous permafrost zone. Temperature cables were installed at the 
   Barney, Fleming, Knox mine, Timmins, Ferriman, Howse, Lance, Pinx, Red and 
   Star ore deposits. Borehole depths ranged from 4 to 137 m, with the majority 
   of boreholes being between 25 and 125 m deep. Data are provided for the period 
   between 1957 to 1982. The length of record varies from only one temperature 
   record to records greater than 10 years in length, with the longest record 
   being 16 years long. The data are provided in both an MS Access database and 
   tab-delimited ASCII formats. The database consists of two tables: one which 
   contains information for individual boreholes, such as location and length of 
   record, and a second table that contains the ground temperature data for all 
   boreholes. The two tables are linked by a unique borehole site number. Data 
   are available via ftp..
