ANDRILL Southern McMurdo Sound Book
Project Description

During the 2007-2008 Antarctic season, scientists from the U.S., Italy, Germany, and New Zealand converged at McMurdo Station to continue drilling geologic rock cores to piece together Antarctica’s climate history.

Co-chief scientists, David Harwood of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Fabio Florindo of Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Rome, said they couldn’t be more pleased with the results of the Southern McMurdo Sound Project. The efforts of the program’s nearly 80 scientists, drillers, engineers, technicians, students, and educators in Antarctica have given the world’s scientists more than a kilometer of pristine rock core that records the history of climate and glacial fluctuations in Antarctica over the past 20 million years.

This booklet accompanied video podcasts produced during the drilling season and is a result of collaboration with educators and curriculum developers.
