Antarctic Geological Drilling 2010-05-26T13:41:29+00:00

andrill-with-penguinsAntarctic Geological Drilling Antarctic Geological Drilling (ANDRILL) is a multinational collaboration of more than 200 scientists, students, and educators from five nations (Germany, Italy, New Zealand, United Kingdom and United States) to recover stratigraphic records from the Antarctic margin. ANDRILL’s integrated science approach will use drilling and multi-proxy core analysis combined with geophysical surveys and numerical modeling to address the Cenozoic history of Antarctic climate and ice sheets, the evolution of polar biota, Antarctic plate motions, and Antarctica’s role in the evolution of Earth’s ocean-climate system. For more information on the project, please visit the ANDRILL website.

Working with the ANDRILL Science Management Office at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Ocean Leadership coordinates US science support activities for the project. These activities include managing the nomination process of the science teams, managing the review process for the McMurdo Ice Shelf Project science documentation proposals, and managing the review process for the Southern McMurdo Sound Project science documentation proposals.
