Today we wrap up our conversations with the ANDRILL scientists (including project leader Dave Harwood) and hear about what lies ahead for the project. Join Exploratorium senior scientist Paul Doherty as he serves up hands-on activities related to science in Antarctica. 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. Nadine, a glaciology graduate student from UC Santa Cruz, spent four weeks on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet investigating ice sheets and global climate change. 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. Pulling food to prepare for four weeks at the West Antarctic Ice Sheet camp. Craig George and Glenn Sheehan explain how scientists have learned from Iñupiaq hunters to make more accurate counts of bowhead whales. Daniel Lum talks about the changes in ocean ice near Barrow.
