Scientists at Palmer Research Station in Antarctica talk about their research: How is the rich marine ecosystem just offshore responding to melting sea ice and global climate change?

00:18:47
Join Exploratorium senior scientist Paul Doherty as he serves up more hands-on activities related to science in Antarctica.

00:02:08
Penn State University glaciologist Dr. Richard Alley explains why ice is cool.

00:26:09
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).

00:23:36
How do ANDRILL scientists drill and retrieve sediment cores from under the ice and sea, and why do they do it?

00:31:34
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.

Dr. Tulaczyk, a glaciologist from UC Santa Cruz, studies the lakes, floods, and ice quakes that occur under the giant glaciers of Antarctica. He is among only 200 scientists world-wide who study ice sheet dynamics and its role in climate change.
