Game cam mounted on coastal permafront bluff

Detailed Description

First good image from the spring of 2019 from a cellular connected game cam mounted on the coastal permafrost bluff near the village of Kaktovik on Barter Island, northeast Alaska. The tower in the background is for mounting additional cameras to document coastal and sea-ice change over a summer season.
