Drilling Below Antarctica to Learn About Climates of the Past
Science educators on a research immersion experience with the Antarctic Geological Drilling Project (ANDRILL) will be sending in postcards while they are in Antarctica from October 2007 until January 2008. The project team is drilling into sedimentary rocks below the ice of the Ross ice shelf to help us learn more about the environmental changes that have affected the continent in the past.
ANDRILL educators Louise Huffman, Kate Pound, Bob Williams, Ken Mankoff, Robin Frisch-Gleason, Joanna Hubbard, and Julia Dooley will be be writing "Postcards from the Field". Click on their names to find out more about them!
