Join us for an overview of the ANDRILL (ANtarctic geological DRILLing) Project, a multinational collaboration among 200-plus scientists, students, and educators from five nations, to recover sediment cores (layered sections of earth) from under the Antarctic ice and seas. By drilling back through time, ANDRILL scientists hope to reconstruct the distant history of environmental changes. This will help them understand how fast, large, and frequent the glacial and interglacial changes were in the Antarctic region. Knowing this history may also help scientists predict the timing and location of possible global-warming scenarios.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
