Typed information accompanying slides: USGS hydrohut mid June1969. The snow melted rapidly in June and there were wet soft snow piles and small lakes everywhere. Rubber boots were the standard footwear. 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 negative: The ice boat: Several of the crew constructed an ice boat with sails made from parachutes. These photos show the ice boat in action. 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: Tripod on the pack ice. After the los of the USGS probe in late July 1969, I had little to do until the first plane arrived. In early August 1969, I accompanied a University of Washington field person on a snowshoe hike across the ice island. We cored a hole through the pack ice, installed a portable tripod and lowered a plankton net. The net remained in place for a month. We returned in early September 1969 to retrieve the tripod, net, and samples. This photo is of the tripod, iced in when we reached the location. September 1969. 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...

Typed information accompanying slide: USGS hydrohut and ice lake. 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-21, 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.

Typed information accompanying slides: Lamont trailer before the move. The Lamont work trailer had to be moved off its ice pillar. This attracted a lot of spectators.

Typed information accompanying negative: The second load: This drop was also on target. 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 paradrop was similar, one month later. The day of the third paradrop was windy...

Typed information accompanying negative: Third load: The third load was similar to the first two and the parachutes landed on target on the runway. For most of the crew, these paradrops were the only contact with the outside world for four months. There were letters and newspapers in the crates and it was exciting to see planes from Alaska, i only briefly. Note: T-3 Photographs - Roll F B&W negatives - June paradrop, 1969.

Typed information accompanying negative: Weather Bureau building: There is a pile of lumber on an ice pillar in the foreground. Anything that shielded ice beneath gradually rose above surrounding ice surface.

The attached files contain the black and white negative numbers G-1 through G-7. Burning the hut. Almost everyone who lived on T-3 was present. The crew from the GM camp arrived on the Weasel blasting rock and roll music from the improvised speakers. Even though the T-3 camp was a small place, we kept to our own areas and weeks went by without seeing other crew members. Only at the paradrops and at get togethers like this day did the crew do much visiting. Only one of the weather bureau staff is seen in these pictures, but the NARL staff and most of the younger camp members are present. Note: Negative number G-2, sd_g2_neg is highlighted on this page. Note: T-3 Photographs - Roll G B&W negatives – July 4,1969...

Caption: Once temperatures warmed each spring, pilots could no longer land on the ice runway to resupply T-3 with food, fuel, and spare parts and to ferry personnel to and from Alaska. During the summer months, Navy C-130s from Ellensdorf Air Force Base supplied the camp by parachute drops. Supplies dropped in June 1969 landed on target on the ice runway. Photo by Dave Scoboria, USGS. Dave Scoboria was a USGS field assistant (and the only USGS presence on the island--solely responsible for the measurements) for part of 1968 and 1969.

The U.S. Geological Survey recovered 9 piston cores from theNorthwind Ridge in the Canada Basin of the Arctic Ocean from acruise of the USCGC Polar Star during 1988. Preliminaryanalysis of the cores suggests sediments deposited onNorthwind Ridge preserve a detailed record of glacial andinterglacial cycles for the last few hundred-thousand to onemillion years. This report includes quantitative data onforaminifers and selected sediment size-fraction data in 98samples from Northwind Ridge core PI-88AR P3, 51 samples fromcore PI-88-AR P7 and 117 samples from core PI-88-AR P9.

The Sea Surface Temperature (SST) data of the Arctic show temperature ranges in degrees C using grid cells of AVHRR Pathfinder version 5 monthly, global, 4 km data set (PFSST V50). The pathfinder rasters are available from the NOAA National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) and from the Physical Oceanography Distributed Active Archive Center (PO.DAAC), hosted by NASA JPL. These data have been QA'd in that we have selected only data values with associated quality flags of 4-7. No Data values are not included here.
