Relations between surface conditions and near-surface ground ice at Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary, Mackenzie Delta, NWT
Principal Investigator: Morse, Peter D
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007 2006
Summary: Permafrost composition and distribution at Kendall Island Bird Sanctuary in the Mackenzie Delta is unknown, and thawing as a result of disturbance may result in surface subsidence.
