Arctic conditions make cleaning waste a challenge

Senior Master Sgt. Gene Geren drills holes for blocks to be cut and removed during an Arctic oil spill response exercise Feb. 4, 2015, in Alaska. The removed blocks will open up a trench to deploy accumulation equipment to clean up a simulated spill. Members of the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, 611th Civil Engineer Squadron, U.S. Navy Supervisor of Salvage and Diving, and U.S. Coast Guardsmen participated in the exercise to learn Arctic spill response tactics and techniques. Geren is the 11th Air Force first sergeant. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. John Gordinier)
