load the helicopter to return from sampling remote lakes in the
Canadian Arctic. Supported by the Arctic Research Initiative, the team
took lake-bottom sediment cores in the Mackenzie River delta to analyze
for baseline data on river flow and transport of organic matter from
soils, from pre-industrial times to the present.
