Barrow, Alaska

In August of 2008, I met a journalist in Alaska named Bob Reiss who was doing a story on Barrow, Alaska for Outside magazine.  That article mostly covered why the Coast Guard is expanding its presence along the Arctic coast.  In the latest issue of Smithsonian magazine, Bob has another nice article covering Barrow as “Ground Zero for Climate Change.” Here he focuses more on life in Barrow, both for scientists and residents.

Here are links to photos from my 2006 and 2008 expeditions to Barrow.
