Today we wrap up our conversations with the ANDRILL scientists (including project leader Dave Harwood) and hear about what lies ahead for the project. Watch ANDRILL scientists examine a sediment core, find out about new developments, and discover ancient diatoms (single-celled marine organisms). How do ANDRILL scientists drill and retrieve sediment cores from under the ice and sea, and why do they do it? 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. Join us as we talk with Dr. William Fry, emeritus professor at Stanford University and the father of gelotology, the study of humor and laughter, and their effects on the human body. Craig George and Glenn Sheehan explain how scientists have learned from Iñupiaq hunters to make more accurate counts of bowhead whales. Interview with Paolo Paulo Olivas about his research at the Barrow Environmental Observatory (BEO). Paulo Olivas points out the different equipment he uses to measure the amount of greenhouse gases being released from the tundra.
