Abstract : This report summarizes climatological ground-temperature and soil data obtained at Kotzebue, Alaska. The climatological data were taken from U. S. Weather Bureau records.

The ground-temperature data were obtained from daily observations during the period 1947-1958; and the soil data were obtained from samples taken during drilling operations in August 1946, July 1958, July 1962 and June 1963.
