About the Yukon Permafrost DatabasePermafrost degradation is impacting Yukon communities and infrastructure at increasing rates with costly consequences. Access to data describing Yukon permafrost is critical for supporting a variety of activities, including: community and infrastructure planning; climate change adaptation planning; and environmental assessments.Development of the Yukon Permafrost Database began in early 2019 to make permafrost data collected within Yukon accessible to a variety of users, including governments; academics; consultants; and the public. Work to date has focused on developing a data model and data standards; and establishing a database. Existing data sets were imported largely from various Government of Yukon branches.The database will be an evolving product that will be updated periodically as new data sources become available. We welcome data contributions from other sources, such as private; industry; and academia.For more information or if you would like to send us your feedback, contact email@example.com.
