Today we wrap up our conversations with the ANDRILL scientists (including project leader Dave Harwood) and hear about what lies ahead for the project. What have scientists learned from the South Pole Telescope so far, and what work needs to be done this year as the scientists fine-tune this amazing new piece of technology? Watch ANDRILL scientists examine a sediment core, find out about new developments, and discover ancient diatoms (single-celled marine organisms). How do ANDRILL scientists drill and retrieve sediment cores from under the ice and sea, and why do they do it? Join us for an overview of the ANDRILL (ANtarctic geological DRILLing) Project, a multinational collaboration among 200-plus scientists, students, and educators from five nations, to recover sediment cores (layered sections of earth) from under the Antarctic ice and seas.

Craig George and Glenn Sheehan explain how scientists have learned from Iñupiaq hunters to make more accurate counts of bowhead whales. Shots of research vessel in the Barrow boat basin near Nuvuk.
