Group: Summary

   The database contains subsurface temperature measurements recorded between 
   1966 and the end of August, 1981 in the Yukon Territory. Measurements were 
   obtained by the former Earth Physics Branch of Energy, Mines and Resources 
   Canada (now Geological Survey of Canada of Natural Resources Canada)in 
   cooperation with mining, petroleum, engineering and consulting industries, the 
   Polar Continental Shelf Project, and the Department of Indian and Northern 
   Affairs. Data from 14 shallow boreholes (0-10 m), 28 intermediate depth holes 
   (10-125 m) and 29 deep holes (greater than 125 m) have been compiled. Four of 
   the boreholes are located in Northern British Columbia. Included in the 
   accompanying report (Burgess et al., 1982), are the mean annual ground surface 
   temperature, mean ground temperature gradients and permafrost thickness for 
   each borehole.
