Summary

Seismic shot data can potentially assist cost/benefit analyses and planning of future seismic and pipeline development activities, by providing regional information on near-surface ground conditions, depths to shallow bedrock, identification of hazards (ground ice, flowing holes), and the location of potential aggregate resources (surface and buried gravel deposits). ... The Seismic Shothole Litholog Database and GIS is a compilation of 75 784 individual, augered shothole records collected during 1960s and 1970s geotechnical seismic operations, conducted along the Mackenzie corridor, NWT, and northern Yukon Territory.
