Comment The purpose of this report is to describe the spatial distribution of terrain affected by active retrogressive thaw slumping in the Peel Plateau, Northwest Territories. Thawing of ice-rich permafrost can lead to significant terrain modification, alter terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and pose a threat to infrastructure. This remote mapping project contributes data on the distribution and density of thaw slumps across a study region (approximately 81 km by 100 km) in the Peel Plateau. Keywords: Retrogressive Thaw Slump, Peel Plateau, Permafrost Disturbance
