Ever wondered what the men’s toilet at Camp Borneo, a temporary Russian camp on the ice about 96 km from the North Pole, consists of? In The North Pole was here, Andrew Revkin reveals this—“a waist high igloo-style wall of ice blocks” (p. 16)—and other details of the fi eld conditions experienced by scientists who carry out research near the very top of the world.
