Finally, Larry and I had agreed earlier in the week to give an informal science presentation to the local community. Nok Ackers, who works for the Barrow Arctic Science Consortium (BASC), extended the initial invitation. I met Nok several years ago during one of my first trips to Barrow. As it turns out, Larry returned to Fairbanks earlier this afternoon and thus the presentation was mine to make. I spoke about the integration knowledge gained through field and laboratory studies into climate models. The NGEE Arctic project served as an example. The presentation was at the Inupiat Heritage Center and was attended by several dozen residents. There was a good Q&A session afterwards.
