Description: Technical Report
Summary: This report presents the results of a reconnaissance survey of selected sites in northern Canada during the summer of 1951 conducted by the Purdue Canadian Arctic Permafrost Expedition and sponsored by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. Field data were obtained on soils and permafrost, and airphoto patterns of those sites where aerial photographs were taken for study are described. The field work was limited geographically to areas along the southern portion of the Alaska Highway in British Columbia and the Yukon Territory, and the following regions in the Mackenzie District of the Northwest Territories: the entire basin of the Mackenzie River, the vicinity of Great Slave Lake, and the vicinity of the Great Bear Lake. Additional observations were made on flights between these areas.
