ANDRILL Project Seeks the "Rosetta Stone" of Climate History in Antarctica
October 1, 2007
When the National Science Foundation-funded Antarctic Geological Drilling (ANDRILL) Program begins its second field campaign this month, scientists will be looking for a "Rosetta Stone" in their sediment cores that will tie together decades of paleoclimate research in Antarctica and the rest of the world to get a more complete picture of how the Antarctic ice sheets responded to past times of global warmth.
