Lead and zinc in sediments and biota from Maarmorilik, West Greenland: an assessment of the environmental impact of mining wastes on an Arctic fjord system
Using satellite telemetry, we monitored the movements of an adult female polar bear (Ursus maritimus) as she traveled from the Alaskan Beaufort Sea coast to northern Greenland. She is the first polar bear known to depart the Beaufort Sea region for an extended period, and the first polar bear known to move between Alaska and Greenland. This bear traveled for four months across the polar basin and came within 2 degrees of the North Pole. During the first year following her capture, she traveled 5256 km. Evidence to suggest her use of maternity dens in northern Alaska and in northern Greenland demonstrates the potential for genetic exchange between two widely separate populations of polar bears. The long life spans...
Handwritten information on back of photograph: 02/25/63, T-3. Cook shack - sitting with me are Arthur and Johnny (at table), 2 of the Eskimos working with us (in background). Additional information obtained from Dr. Carolyn Ruppel, Chief, U.S. Geological Survey's Gas Hydrates Project: These were likely taken during the setup phase for the laboratory "hut". I don't see in these photos any of the equipment that would have been in the hydrohut. We seem to be seeing the stove (left) and work table, but not the high bay where the piston core/heat flow probe would have been on a winch with thousands of meters of cable to lower the gear to the seafloor. It is likely that the "Eskimos" referred to for this photo were...
