ANtarctic geological DRILLing
ANDRILL is a multinational collaboration comprised of more than 200 scientists, students, and educators from four nations (Germany, Italy, New Zealand, and the United States) to recover stratigraphic records from the Antarctic margin using drilling technology. The chief objective is to drill back in time to recover a history of paleoenvironmental changes that will guide our understanding of how fast, how large, and how frequent were glacial and interglacial changes in the Antarctica region. Future scenarios of global warming require knowledge of past history that can reveal potential timing frequency and site of future changes.
Project Iceberg is ANDRILL's gateway for educators, providing materials for classrooms and community groups to learn more about the ANDRILL Project.
