Transporting equipment back to camp in the camp weasel. T-3 (Fletcher's) Ice Island, Arctic Ocean. 1969.
Typed information accompanying slide: Returning to camp. Bob Sutton, camp leader, had loaned us the camp weasel to cross the island to retrieve the gear. The equipment included gear, heater, hose and other items. Similar to D-7. Link to this photograph is listed below in Web Links. Note: T-3 Color slides - Roll D - Color slides September 1969. These photos were developed in late 1969 after I returned from T-3 and made into Kodacolor slides. Photos by Dave Scoboria.
Typed information accompanying negative: The C-130 plane appeared out of the clouds, dropped its load and disappeared again, all within a matter of thirty seconds. Note: T-3 Photographs - Roll F B&W negatives - June paradrop, 1969. There were three paradrops during the summer of 1969 performed by Navy C-130 planes from Elmendorf Air Force Base in Fairbanks, Alaska. These are described in this website, http://www.firebirds.org/menu2/t3/t3_p02.htm On the receiving end of the paradrops on T-3, these days were the high points of the summer season. This roll documents the first paradrop, which occurred in late June on a cloudy day. The loads were delivered on target to the camp runway without mishap. The second...
Scanning electron micrographs of the diagnostic ostracode species from the Fish Creek section. Arctic Ocean. 1987.

Typed information accompanying negative: Hauling a load back to camp: Bob Sutton driving the cat, the crew sits on top of the crates. There is a congenial spirit of cooperation at these camp activities. A small amount of beer was included among the supplies which lasted a few days, otherwise the camp was dry that summer. It was a year later that homemade raisin wine led to the events in whicdh Bennie Lightsy, the camp manager was shot and killed. Bennie worked on T-3 as a Weather Bureau employee for three months in the spring of 1969. Note: T-3 Photographs - Roll F B&W negatives - June paradrop, 1969.

Typed information accompanying negative: Looking out the window of one of the trailers. There were a group of college students working on T-3 in the summer of 1969, including the crews from Lamont, Univ. of Alaska, and U of W. This group tended to socialize together. Note: T-3 Photographs - Roll G B&W negatives – July 4,1969 This roll of photographs was mostly taken on July 4, 1969. There was a camp get together and celebration that day. There was no alcohol on T-3 at that point. Bob Sutton chose an abandoned hut to burn and that event was the high point of the day. (Photos on Roll G taken by Dave Scorboria)
Typed information accompanying negative: Hydrohut: Possibly the Lamont hydrohut. Note: T-3 Photographs - Roll I B&W negatives – August-September 1969 This roll shows activities during August and September 1969 on T-3. The summer season had now lasted two months. The weather grew cold. Photos by Dave Scorboria.
Typed information accompanying negative: GM camp in the distance: The GM camp appeared close in the light of summer. Note: T-3 Photographs - Roll I B&W negatives – August-September 1969 This roll shows activities during August and September 1969 on T-3. The summer season had now lasted two months. The weather grew cold. Photos by Dave Scorboria.
Typed information accompanying slide: Ice lake in front of hydrohut. Stu with a packing crate boat. Stu worked for either University of Washington or University of Alaska in 1969. This series of photos took place on a sunny day in late June. There was a lake between the camp and the Lamont trailer. Stu found a packing crate and makeshift paddle and went boating. Similar to C-20, C-22, C-23. Links to these images listed in Web Links below. Note: T-3 Color slides - Roll C - Color slides June 1969. These photos were taken between June 6, 1969 and June 27, 1969 and developed in late 1969 into Kodacolor slides after returning from T-3. One slide has deteriorated. Photos by Dave Scoboria, except for C-6.
Typed information accompanying slide: Smoke from the dump. The trash was burned regularly. June 1969. Note: T-3 Color slides - Roll C - Color slides June 1969. These photos were taken between June 6, 1969 and June 27, 1969 and developed in late 1969 into Kodacolor slides after returning from T-3. One slide has deteriorated.

Handwritten information accompanying photograph: Maybe GM camp.
The T-3 (Fletcher's) Ice Island in the Arctic Ocean was the site of a scientific research station re-established by the Naval Arctic Research Laboratory starting in 1962. Starting in 1963, the USGS acquired marine heat flow data and coincident sediment cores at sites in Canada Basin, Nautilus Basin, Mendeleev Ridge, and Alpha Ridge as the ice island drifted in the Amerasian Basin. At least 584 heat flow penetrations were attempted, and data were reported at 356 of these. This dataset is the enhanced version of the original data table from Lachenbruch and others (2019; see cross-reference), incorporating additional information such as the probable dates of measurement, physiographic province and surficial geology...
Bivalvia Subset of Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) - USA Dataset Collection for NFHP Thematic Viewer 20141202
Species occurrence records of the taxonomic class of Bivalvia in oceans within 1000 kilometers of the United States shoreline. This is a subset of the OBIS-USA dataset where Bivalvia records were queried on December 2, 2014. After initial queries, the remaining data were further queried to retain only samples within 1000 kilometers of the U.S. shoreline. Spatial queries were then used to remove samples overlaying land masses. Data are provided in a geodatabase format, as well as a comma seperated values format. OBIS-USA provides aggregated, interoperable biogeographic data collected primarily from U.S. waters and oceanic regions--the Arctic, the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and...
