Comment The purpose of this report is to describe the spatial data distribution of terrain affected by retrogressive thaw slumping in the Tuktoyaktuk coastlands, western Anderson Plain, and Mackenzie Delta regions. 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 15 244 km2 study region. Keywords: Retrogressive Thaw Slump, Tuktoyaktuk coastlands, western Anderson Plain, Mackenzie Delta region, Permafrost Disturbance
