Calling All Selawik Pilots and Hunters

Investigators Vladimir Romanovsky and Reginald Muskett at the GI Permafrost Laboratory are conducting a Satellite Reconnaissance Survey of the Selawick region. The composite image shows a possible ground-disturbance feature about 11 miles east of the Selawik Airfield. The feature itself is about 33 (inner diameter) to 130 (outer diameter) feet across. Ground truth is needed! Do you have any ground photos of this feature?
