ANDRILL Resources (Click this link)

ANDRILL (ANtarctic geological DRILLing) was a National Science Foundation funded science research program that recovered marine sediment cores during two large drilling projects: the McMurdo Ice Shelf project (MIS) and the Southern McMurdo Sound project (SMS). Sediment cores were drilled from an ice platform, through the Ross Sea near McMurdo Station, Antarctica. The ANDRILL scientists and educators worked together to create resources for teaching paleoclimate and climate change topics in middle school and high school classrooms. The links below will take you to chapters in two different resource books:

  1. Antarctica’s Climate Secrets
  2. Environmental Literacy with Focus on Climate Change (the ELF)
