Fairbanks Permafrost Experiment Station

This week I got to check out the US Army Corps of Engineers’ research stomping grounds, also known as the Fairbanks Permafrost Experiment Station (FPES).  Accompanied by my proficient permafrost guides, Jackson and Alex, I explored this unique study site. Together we drilled soil cores,  slogged through the rain and battled prolific mosquitoes. Fun field days in Fairbanks!
