The Department of Interior on January 11 approved oil and gas drilling on about 500,000 acres of land in and around Teshekpuk Lake on Alaska‘«÷s North Slope within the National Petroleum Reserve. The area is a critical stop for migratory geese, and caribou use the area for calving and as a migratory path. No surface drilling will be allowed on 486,000 acres; a maximum of 2,100 acres in seven different zones can be permanently disturbed on the surface. The ASTER image was acquired on August 15, 2000, covers an area of 58.7 x 89.9 km, and is centered near 70.4 degrees north latitude, 153 degrees west longitude. The image has been resampled to 30 m to reduce the file size. (information courtesy of Los Angeles Times)
