Start Port/Location: Kaktovik, Alaska
End Port/Location: Kaktovik, Alaska
Start Date: 2014-09-01
End Date: 2014-09-08
Equipment Used: camera, Other, Ashtech Z-Xtreme GPS, Hand-grab sample, probe pole
Information to be Derived: Active Layer Thickness measurements and high resolution ground surface elevations coincident with electrical resistivity transects collected during FAN 2014-624_FA.
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: GPS raw data on FAD; Acquired ground surface elevations and active layer thicknesses along resistivity transects and elsewhere; ground control points for coincident acquisition of aerial photography, and soil and water samples. Retrieved images from 2 time lapse cameras (outfall pipe and snow fence) and redeployed 2 cameras on snow fence.
Staff: Ann Gibbs, Bruce Richmond
Notes: Coordinating with Tom Reiss to borrow 2-3 Ashtech ZXtremes,tripod, and stadia rods.
Imagery will be acquired using project DSLR and time lapse cameras.
Images from 2014 and 2015 archived under this FAN.
