Goals:

The goals of the Network are to encourage communication and to provide a forum for researchers, government, and industry to discuss developments related to the field of permafrost in the Yukon.  The Network will also be a place where potential new sources of Yukon permafrost data can be identified that would be suitable for adding to the Yukon permafrost database.

Activities:

  • List of Yukon Permafrost Network members with contact information & permafrost interests
  • Provide publicaly accessible Yukon Permafrost Data
  • Start a Yukon Permafrost list serve
  • Open door to drop by the Yukon Geological Survey Office
