Monitoring Long-Term Global Climate Change with Ion Chromatography

submitted by: Chrom Solutions
The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is a leading environmental research center that focuses on the United Kingdom’s national scientific activities in Antarctica. Some of their current research includes long-term monitoring of global climate change via ice core sample analysis of the polar ice caps in both Antarctica and Greenland. In this video, Dr. Ailsa Benton, Ice Core Analytical Scientist at with the BAS, describes her research and how BAS scientists are able to analyze essential anions...

Ice Drillers are Hard Core

submitted by: ppza
Deciphering the secrets of past climate hidden in ice cores depends on the technical skills and ingenuity under pressure of drillers from ICDS, the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Ice Coring and Drilling Services. In this video, ICDS staffers Lou, Mike and Jay explain why they enjoy the life of drillers, braving extreme cold in some of the remotest regions of the globe. Mike says drilling requires both science and art, and why he keeps his hand on the cable even when it's minus 20; Lou...

The Big Thaw
