Minsley, B.J., Emond, A.M., and Rey, D.M., 2017, Airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey data and inverted resistivity models, western Yukon Flats, Alaska, February 2016: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Airborne electromagnetic (AEM) and magnetic survey data were collected during February 2016 along 300 line kilometers in the western Yukon Flats near Stevens Village, Alaska. Data were acquired with the CGG RESOLVE frequency-domain helicopter-borne electromagnetic systems together with a Scintrex Cesium Vapour CS-3 magnetometer. The AEM average depth of investigation is about 100 m. The survey was flown at a nominal flight height of 30 m above terrain along widely spaced reconnaissance lines. This data release includes raw and processed AEM data and laterally-constrained inverted resistivity depth sections along all flight lines. This release also includes unprocessed and processed magnetic data that has been drift corrected and draped [...]

Data were collected to improve the understanding of permafrost distribution and geological structure and their relation to permafrost hydrology in the western Yukon flats near Stevens Village, Alaska. These data are a western extension of AEM data collected by the USGS in 2010 (
