UPDATE: This article originally included a photo that suggested it was of scientist Thomas Rich digging on the North Slope. The photo was actually of another scientist, Dr. Anthony R. Fiorillo, who was not involved in the Colville River project. Thanks go to Paul McCarthy at the University of Alaska for catching the error and correcting us on it.
