I was finally able to get though some video editing. So here you go!
This first video is from the day I spent in the helo with the Fishscapes project in the Kuparuk River Valley. The Fishscapes project is a collaboration between the Marine Biological Lab at Woods Hole and University of Connecticut and are studying the Arctic grayling (Thymallus arcticus) populations. The video will also give you a aerial view of the Water Tracks project that I was working on.
The next video is a look at some of the wildlife I saw during my time in the Arctic.
I had some folks ask what ptarmigan sound like, so I made this short video of the ptarmigan call.
Lastly, on of the activities we did while in the Arctic was to dig soil brownies (instead of soil cores). Watch the video below to learn about soil brownies and see permafrost.
I hope you enjoy the videos!
