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...

Science Nation - Lord of the Tree Rings

submitted by: nsf
David Stahle travels to ancient forests around the world, collecting tree rings to learn more about major climate and historical events dating back hundreds and thousands of years. With help from the National Science Foundation, he uses Dendrochronology, or tree-ring dating, to get a snapshot of climate change over time. Stahle can also determine things like the socioeconomic impact of droughts. In fact, in 1998, he made the front page of the New York Times with his discovery that drought...
