Detail of Slide #49


The plane takes us to the island of Axel Heiberg located south of Ellesmere. We land at a valley dotted with tents. This area which appears barren is the land of the fossil forest. Scientists from several countries - United States, Australia, Britain and Canada - have gathered to uncover the past of this land.
