It's cold in Barrow, even in mid-July, especially at Point Barrow with the 20mph wind whipping off of the Arctic Ocean (seen in the background). The wind chill made it feel like 10°F below zero.
Physics major Jared Palmer is operating the GPR control console while I drag the 500MHz antenna setup behind me.

There was so much work to get done this year that we actually were there for 2 weeks. Five people stayed for the whole two weeks. Must have been gluttons for punishment. This picture was taken March 5, when the temperature was 20 below zero, but the wind chill put the temperature at worse than 30 below zero!
