Search the Metadata Catalogue for hundreds of references to environmental datasets relevant to Yukon Territory.
Yukon is a world-class jurisdiction for environmental research. From the Kluane Icefields to the Old Crow Flats, pristine habitats, unique ecosystems, unusual geological formations and a veritable treasure trove of archaeologic digs has made Yukon an exceptional destination for scientific discovery.
For those researchers planning or preparing for a research project in Yukon, the Yukon Territorial Government offers a helpful Guide Book on Scientific Research in Yukon which provides need-to-know information about Yukon’s scientific permitting system, funding sources, and requirements for engaging in research on First Nations settlement lands.
The Metadata Catalogue is a Yukon based research tool containing catalogue references to environmental datasets that have been compiled as a result of scientific research previously performed in Yukon.
Each catalogue reference includes such information as:
- Location, duration and class of information collected
- Equipment and methods used to collect data
- Exceptions, citations and publication references
The range of environmental data that has been collected is as diverse as Yukon itself. Information has been collected and analyzed for such purposes as;
- Atmospheric modeling in the Kluane Icefields
- Assessing wind energy potential across Yukon
- Permafrost measurements
- Water quality
- Geological hazards
- Fire weather monitoring
Cryospheric (ice & snow) data from the polar regions of the world is also available through YRC Data Server metadata catalogue as a result of our partnership with the Polar Data Catalogue.
