The Mackenzie Delta, prograding northwestwards into the Beaufort Sea, is North America's largest arctic delta. The aims of this paper are to : 1) describe regional environmental conditions in the Mackenzie Delta area and their control on the characteristics of permafrost; 2) provide a context for environmental management and research on permafrost in the region; and 3) summarise the changes in ground temperatures since 1970 in the region
