Soil temperature profiles from permafrost in subarctic Canada

This dataset consists of soil temperature profiles from permafrost in subarctic Canada. Soil temperature profiles were monitored during summer in 2013 and 2014 in Yukon and Northwest Territories. Monitored sites included peatland plateaus, thawing features of peatland plateaus, unburnt and burnt black spruce forests, and additional sites.

Soil temperatures were recorded using a conventional electronic thermometer and using thermistors inserted at depth and connected to a multimeter. In some sites, soil temperatures were monitored using a Rototherm probe (British Rototherm Co. Ltd. Port Talbot, UK) connected to a hand-held digital thermometer.
