Join Exploratorium senior scientist Paul Doherty as he serves up more hands-on activities related to science in Antarctica. Join us in conversation with David Ainley and other researchers, as they wrap up there field season at the Adelie penguin breeding colonies in Antarctica’s Ross Sea. 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. What have scientists learned from the South Pole Telescope so far, and what work needs to be done this year as the scientists fine-tune this amazing new piece of technology? 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. Christina, a geologist from Stanford University, investigates climate history by scouring sediment samples for diatoms, microscopic marine creatures that lived long ago in Antarctica's McMurdo Sound. 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.
