Benjamin Jones and his team are trying to understand how the North Slope landscape has changed over the last 10,000 years. In this episode, we learn about the science and how Ben’s team is trying to assess how lakes on the landscape have developed and evolved, the tendencies towered them catastrophically draining, and the impacts towards a whole host of things that encompass the terrestrial/fresh water components of the entire Arctic System.
