Our Changing World - Ice Drilling in Antarctica

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:36 pm on 16 July 2012

Nancy Bertler likes it cold. She spends her summers in Antarctica and her winters working in a laboratory at minus 20 degrees, surrounded by ice. As a glaciologist, Nancy's interested in the information she can glean from ice cores which hold clues about how quickly Antarctica's ice sheets have retreated in the past.
