    Pictures of Inuvik. The north is like another country. The northern people are more polite and civil than the people in Vancouver and the northern customs and culture clearly distinguish northern people from the savage barbarians in the southern cities (like Vancouver, for example). On the way to Inuvik on the Dempster Highway you will be.   The unsatisfactory local conditions uncovered by those investigations led the Advisory Committee on Northern Development to recommend that Aklavik should be moved to a new and more stable site. This recommendation was accepted in December and the Advisory Committee was given the responsibility of selecting a new site.

    published in in "Permafrost Engi- neering Design and Construction" Hank was the editor and a major con- tributor to this very significant and ex- cellent book. Hank had many direct contacts With the international permafrost commu- nity. Through a program of scientific exchange, he and his close colleague, Roger Brown, were able to visit the. An extensive investigation ensued to find his true identity. His death photos and description were circulated word wide, causing some leads to come in, but nothing definite. No one came forward to claim the body and ‘Albert Johnson’ was buried in a perma-frost grave near the village of Aklavik.

The Aklavik investigations were located at the site of a proposed ten-room school and an eight-room teacherage on the northern end of the settlement.

The site was low lying and covered with an organic layer about 12 inches thick. Fifteen bore holes were drilled; three exploratory and twelve for thermocouple : J. Pihlainen and G. Johnston. Sixteen drill holes were made, each approximately 30 ft. deep, and samples were taken.

The building of this entirely new community was prompted in part by investigations conducted at Aklavik inwhich showed the soils and permafrost conditions in that area to be unusually poor from the construction standpoint.5 The development of Inuvik6 has provided a unique opportunity to observe the effect on permafrost of the construction of the various facilities associated with a town and the detailed assessment.

Permafrost is a naturally occurring material that has a temperature below 0°C continuously for 2 or more years (Muller,p. 3).This layer of frozen ground is designated exclusively on the basis of temperature.

Permafrost is the thermal condition of the earth’s crust when its temperature has been below 32°F continuously for a number of years. Half of Canada’s land surface lies in the permafrost region—either in the continuous zone where the ground is frozen to a depth of hundreds of feet.

Abstract. Results of mapping of permafrost developed on the shelves of Arcticseas are reviewed. Mapping in the Eurasian sector of the Arctic is of a purely predictive character due to the lack of data on the structure and thickness of perennially frozen : A. Gavrilov.
