Jesse worked on the storm surge project.  He spent part of the summer of 2017 traveling to remote beaches near Shaktoolik and Savoonga sampling driftwood.  Cross-sections samples were taken to be evaluated by the Tree Ring Laboratory at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks.  From these samples we were able to estimate the river of origin of the logs and the age of the logs, both help narrow the range of storm dates that may have deposited the wood.
