--------------------
The Circum-Arctic Lakes Observation Network (CALON) project in
collaboration with the Toolik Field Station staff announce a call for
participation in the 2014 Toolik Lake Ice Classic, a contest to guess
when Toolik Lake will become 100% ice-free in 2014. Toolik Lake is an
Arctic Long Term Ecological Research (ALTER) site in northern Alaska.

To encourage educated guessing, CALON and Toolik Field Station staff has
made current surface conditions of the lake available to the public via
an array of wireless web cameras around the lake perimeter. These
cameras capture images at three-hour intervals between 9:00 a.m. and
7:00 p.m. (AKDT). A chart of dates the lake became ice-free from
2000-2013 is also available online.

The winner of the contest will receive a customized Toolik Field Station
2014 Ice Classic coffee mug.

Deadline for entering a guess: Monday, 12 May 2014.
