The Coldest Spring Break Ever

Hi everyone. I have returned from Barrow Alaska with many great experiences in hand. My research team and I accomplished our goals, but not without out much tribulaiton and unforseen obstacles. We collected a library of digital informaiton, most of which will take weeks/months to analyze.

For now, I’ll share with you some of the pictures and details that made this trip cool.
Here we are over the Roockies, on our way to Alaska. Our trip there took about 16 hrs. The return trip began 8pm on a Friday night in Barrow, and ended at about 6pm Sunday in DC.

Here are some of my teamates walking about a halfmile out on the sea ice of the Artic Ocean. On this day, the temperature was -57 degress F (including wind-chill correciton).

This is one of the major pieces of scientific data-gathering devices we used. It essentially uses transmiters and recievers to map whatever you walk on. The computer that runs this system suffered from data corruption, so my team of three had triple the work.
As I sort through everything, I will have more as time goes on. I am setting up a site that will hold all our pictures in a single place.
