Antarctica: Ice Sheet Reconstruction and Ice Cores
4 likes
Ice sheet reconstruction and ice coring, methods used to analyze past temperatures and various other aspects of the environment, are used to paint a clear picture of the atmospheric and cryospheric changes being observed over long stretches of history. The interconnections between these research techniques have been used to study climate change in the polar regions.
