Ground ice map of Canada - segregated ice

Ground ice map of Canada - segregated ice The mapping depicts the relative abundance of segregated ice in upper permafrost at a national scale. The mapping is based on modelling by O'Neill et al. (2019) (https://doi.org/10.5194/tc-13-753-2019). The mapping offers an improved depiction of ground ice in Canada at a broad scale, incorporating current knowledge on the associations between geological and environmental conditions and ground ice type and abundance. It provides a foundation for hypothesis testing related to broad-scale controls on ground ice formation, preservation, and melt. 2021-05-19 Natural Resources Canada nrcan.gsc-geosciencedata-donneesgeoscience-cgc.rncan@canada.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and Technologysegregated icePermafrostGround ice Ground ice map of Canada - segregated iceHTML https://doi.org/10.4095/326885 Carte de la glace de sol du Canada - glace de ségrégationHTML https://doi.org/10.4095/326885 Ground ice map of Canada - segregated ice abundance layer - FrenchWMS https://wms.geosciences.ca/pin_fr?REQUEST=GetCapabilities&VERSION=1.3.0&SERVICE=WMS&layers=Segregated_ice&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Ground ice map of Canada - segregated ice abundance layer - EnglishWMS https://wms.geosciences.ca/pin?REQUEST=GetCapabilities&VERSION=1.3.0&SERVICE=WMS&layers=Segregated_ice&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/html Ground ice map of Canada - WMS service - EnglishWMS https://wms.geosciences.ca/pin?REQUEST=GetCapabilities&VERSION=1.3.0&SERVICE=WMS Ground ice map of Canada - WMS service - FrenchWMS https://wms.geosciences.ca/pin_fr?REQUEST=GetCapabilities&VERSION=1.3.0&SERVICE=WMS
