Dune Lake- Clues to Ancient Alaska

The link https://www.gi.alaska.edu/ScienceForum/ASF15/1534.html connects you to an article about Dune Lake by Ned Rozwell through the Alaska Science Forum supported by the Geophysical Institute. Dune Lake is 25 miles south of Nenana. The article discusses the formation of the lake after the ice-age 11,000 years ago. Rozwell goes on to write about how researchers and scientists are using sediment cores from Dune Lake to track the development of the ecosystem around the body of water over the last 11,000 years. This article lends to “place based” education, current scientific research, and could be an awesome field trip!
