  • Media Day at the Tanana River Test Site

Last Friday the Tanana River Test Site (TRTS) played host to a visit by journalist Chris Mooney from the Washington Post.  Chris is in Alaska doing research on the larger than normal fire season that Alaska residents have been experiencing this summer and how it relates to the subject of global warming.

Later in the day, well known UAF photographer Todd Paris paid AHERC a visit as well.  He traveled to Nenana to be onsite during Oceana’s testing of their unique in-river turbine design and to gather more photos of research being conducted by UAF researchers.
