At Swiss Camp this year, there were 1.2 meters (3.9 feet) of new snow that had accumulated in the past year that I had to dig through before reaching the hard, frozen ice of the ice sheet below.

264 viewsLin Liu pulls a ground penetrating radar unit through the tundra in rainy weather. The survey near Barrow, Alaska measures active layer depth. The radar unit (in the box) emits a pulse which reflects off the permafrost to measure the active layer depth, which is recorded in the computer held by Andy Parsekian.
