ANDRILL McMurdo Ice Shelf Education Booklet
Project Description

During the 2006-2007 Antarctic season, scientists from the U.S., Italy, Germany, the U.K., and New Zealand converged to extract  rock core from the depths of Antarctica and analyze it for eventual publication in the journal Nature. This booklet accompanies a series of video podcasts designed for educators and students to follow along with the exciting story.

The key aim of the ANDRILL McMurdo Ice Shelf (MIS) Project was to determine past ice shelf responses to climate forcing. ANDRILL recovered a 1200 meter-thick body of Plio-Pleistocene (0-5 million years ago) glacimarine, terrigenous, volcanic, and biogenic sediment rock core from beneath the McMurdo Ice Shelf.

This booklet was produced in collaboration with science educators and curriculum developers.
