AbstractSoils and soil conditions typical of the delta proper are described first. Most of this information was collected during 1953, but data obtained in succeeding years also are included. Soils information also is given on areas investigated on the western edge of the delta along the Husky Channel and farther north. On the eastern edge of the delta, detailed exploratory soil surveys for the Aklavik Relocation Project were carried out at two potential townsite areas approximately 35 miles east of Aklavik. Notes on soils at Kittigazuit and in the Caribou Hills, are also included. Wherever it may prove helpful, soil information is augmented by typical aerial photographs, borehole logs, and ground photographs.
