The Offshore New Harbor Project: Investigating the Greenhouse World to Icehouse World TransitionWritten by ANDRILL Team
From October through December of 2008, the Offshore New Harbor Expedition will seismically image sediments located below the sea floor in the New Harbor area of Antarctica that were deposited when the Earth was transitioning from a Greenhouse World (>34 million years ago) to an Icehouse World (34 Ma to Today). This project is part of the ANDRILL Program (ANtarctic DRILLing), a multinational initiative with the objective to recover stratigraphic core records for the use of interpreting Antarctic's climatic, glacial, and tectonic history for the past 50 Ma. The main goal of this expedition is to locate the optimal site to drill these sediments in the near future. The expedition team will include scientists, students, and a schoolteacher who will live on the sea ice for about 40 days and will take part in an exciting educational program that includes video and audio conferencing to schools around the world, video blogs, and collecting weather data for student projects. Visit the ONH or ANDRILL Project Circle sites on how to participate.
