Drilling Back to the Future: Climate Clues from Ancient Ice on Greenland

Just before the last Ice Age, temperatures were 5 to 9 degrees F warmer than today, and global sea level was 13 to 20 feet higher. In July 2009, Climate Central traveled to Greenland to visit scientists drilling into ancient ice for clues about this chapter of the past, and what it might say about the potential effects of global warming this century.

Greenland: Life on the Greenland Ice Sheet

An international team of scientists just wrapped up their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile core of solid ice in Greenland, bringing them one step closer to reconstructing the climate of the past 130,000 years. Accompanied by a production team from StormCenter Communications, Dr. Heidi Cullen spent some time with these scientists on the ice and in their underground trenches to find out what life is like in this remote place.

Greenland: The Pilots of the 109th Airlift Wing

The Air Force National Guard is a vital part of climate research in the far north of Greenland. Dr. Heidi Cullen, with a production team from StormCenter Communications, met with the pilots of the 109th Airlift Wing to talk about what it’s like to fly in extreme weather conditions, and their dangerous job – getting people and equipment into Greenland's harsh interior and back.

Greenland: Ice Cores and Climate

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.
