The fall field program in Northern British Columbia is winding down. Researchers from Carleton’s permafrost group instrumented two new sites and re-visited several others to read out data, 1–20 September 2016. The weather was not always co-operative, but with a little creative rescheduling, everyone managed to stay mostly dry. The new research sites will become part of a network of similarly-instrumented locations across Canada that will be used to test models of ground temperature.
Thanks to our research partners Marten, Alex and Vanessa at the Forests Lands and Natural Resources office in Prince George for all their support!
