Seward Peninsula June 2008

This album contains images from Guido's expedition to the Seward Peninsula, Alaska, in June 2008. We worked in the Cape Espenberg lowland around the Kitluk river mouth, based out of a nice little camp. Together with four colleagues from the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research Potsdam, Germany, and one from the Senckenberg Institute Weimar we sampled permafrost sediments and ground ice in coastal exposures, surveyed recent plant communities and ostracod fauna, and did geophysical surveys of permafrost sediments. The fieldwork was funded by NSF, NASA and the Alfred Wegener Institute.
