General Information

Abstract: This document comprises a compilation of technical reports for field investigations completed by Yukon University Research Centre (YRC) at seven case study sites that represent common permafrost environments in the greater Whitehorse area. This work was completed for Yukon Geological Survey (YGS) with core funding from Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) Climate Change Preparedness in the North (CCPN) program.
The primary purpose of the report is to document results of field investigations (e.g., ERT geophysics, drilling and geotechnical laboratory analysis) completed by YRC at each site. Supporting background material and case study geological descriptions were prepared by YGS, along with general discussion relating to climate change and implications for development.
