The data from nine permafrost thermal monitoring sites at widely separated locations across northern Canada were examined individually, spatially, and temporally. Three sites are in Nunavut (Alert, Iqaluit, and Baker Lake), two in the Northwest Territories (Table Mountain and Wrigley), and four in the Yukon Territory (Wolf Creek, Sixty Mile, Alpine Burwash, and Red Creek). The sites have between one and five boreholes that are instrumented to between 3 and 60 m with records of varying durations. Most of the boreholes are co-located with weather stations recording air temperatures and snow depths. A comprehensive analysis of each site is presented assessing the relations between climate and permafrost temperatures, both in the near [...]
