Mackenzie Mountains offer stunning backdrop for research

Another year of field work is complete on the Mackenzie Mountains Earthscope project and one thing is clear, the locations researchers get to work in are absolutely stunning. The study, entering its fourth year, is aimed at understanding the origins of the enigmatic mountain range. Instrumentation to track deep earth vibration and movements will remain in the field for another year before being collected by the research team.
