SUMMARY

1 min 31 sec

An international team of climate scientists, working on the NEEM research project, has just completed their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile deep vertical core of solid ice in Greenland, looking for clues about ancient and future climates. In July of 2009, Dr. Heidi Cullen traveled to Greenland with a production team from StormCenter Communications to visit the team, and discuss their findings.

For a more in-depth look at the NEEM project and its findings, watch Drilling Back to the Future: Climate Clues from Ancient Ice on Greenland, Climate Central's report broadcast on PBS’s The NewsHour.

ASSESSMENT

Assessment is at the discretion of the educator as to how the video is applied and the expectations after viewing it.
