Cessna floatplane parked on the oldest known zircon-bearing rock in the world.  This plane was used to take samples of an esker system that crosses major age and isotopic boundaries, with the goal of tracing ancient crust using detrital minerals caught in glacial sediments; project in collaboration with Alberto Reyes from the University of Alberta.
