Summary

With increasing development of resources and transportation systems in areas of permafrost in Canada, the need for efficient and effective landslide hazard assessment in northern regions is greater now than ever. Furthermore, most climatological models suggest an accelerating warming trend for the region, along with more extreme climatic events, which would lead to increased landslide frequency. This project was undertaken to identify and characterize landslide processes in an area of discontinuous permafrost and to develop methods of landslide susceptibility mapping. The project includes 1:50 000 scale terrain evaluation mapping, detailed field-based landslide characterization, landslide inventory mapping, and landslide susceptibility [...]
