Join Exploratorium physicists Paul Doherty and Stephanie Chasteen as they examine the past, present, and future of climate change. Watch as Paul and Stephanie demonstrate how you can look at a slice of climate from the past, what a sediment core might look like, and the secrets hidden in an ice balloon! Exploratorium physicist Paul Doherty chats with Richard Levy, a geologist, and Ross Powell, who’s the co-director of the ANDRILL project. They are drilling beneath the Antarctic seafloor, and pulling up sediment cores. By looking at the layers of the past, they hope to help us predict our future. More quick answers to the most frequently asked questions about global warming. Watch as Exploratorium physicists Paul Doherty and Stephanie Chasteen play around with the leading greenhouse gas: carbon dioxide. What is it? How much is there in our atmosphere? What does it do that is so harmful to the environment? Setting up camp at the Kamchatka Microbial Observatory. The bath pool at the Kamchatka Microbial Observatory. Searching for diesel at the Kamchatka Microbial Observatory. The Geyser Valley is a "candy shop" for microbiologists and geochemists. Bears lumber across a pristine landscape in remote Kamchatka, Russia. Discovered just 60 years ago, this remote valley in Russia is a treasure trove for scientists studying microorganisms that survive under extreme conditions.
