World War II cooperation among the circumpolar Allies helped launched the Naval Arctic Research Laboratory at Barrow. Alaska. There scientists developed the interdisciplinary research and knowledge--and the crucial foundation of cooperation between the Inupiat peoples and scientists--that would prove essential to the world of arctic science. This book ties together the major events in the history of the lab, demonstrating not only the important scientific developments that occurred there, but also the colorful and often hilarious accounts of scientific adventure and Barrow lore that are part of life at the lab.
