Drilling For Knowledge

Victoria University’s Tim Naish is one of a hundred scientists from 40 different countries working on a map of climate change. The Antarctic Geological Drilling Program (ANDRILL) is digging deep below the Ross Ice Shelf to determine how massive ice sheets responded to past temperature changes. According to those involved, the creation of a map to show how the Earth may react to higher temperatures is vital. We may not understand the future, but we can understand the past,” says project leader David Harwood of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
