Photo by @jtkerby (Jeff Kerby) // Washing up // A quiet view of Alexandra Fiord on the east coast of Ellesmere Island in the Canadian High Arctic. Even in the peak of summer, ice lingers on the tidal flats as the sun glides in a continuous circle low on the horizon. Tundra researchers have been coming here every summer here since 1980, a polar oasis home to one of the longest running (and now widespread) experiments in Arctic plant ecology. After a long day in the field, we all take a turn at cooking and doing dishes. While I generally love cooking, this is one of the first times I’ve also looked forward to cleaning up the mess. What a view! #Arctic #Ellesmere #Canada #UBC #Dartmouth #UEdinburgh #ITEX #TeamShrub // For more photos about the science and scientists at this site, #FollowMe on @jtkerby
