I have just returned from Kotzebue, Alaska where I spend that last two weeks collecting geophysical data for an Archaeological survey.  We have been using ground penetrating radar to look for cultural features in a five acre near the Kotzebue airport.  The weather in Kotzebue was amazing and on top of that this way my first summer solstice spent north of the arctic circle!  What a great project to kick off start of summer.  I also got to see the change of the seasons over the last two weeks.  When I arrived there was still patches of snow and the ice was constantly flowing along the coast as it drained out from the lakes and rivers.  By the time I left it was very green and there was no ice to be seen.
