The Road to ANDRILL



MCMURDO ICE SHEET– In this video dispatch, ride in a special Mat Track truck across the ice sheet with me as I travel with ANDRILL Staff Scientist Richard Levy from McMurdo Station to the ANDRILL drill site. We investigate the truck’s special wheels, observe beautiful panoramas of the Transantarctic Mountains, and hear the drill running at the drill site.

  1. Hello,

    Where can we get published information on your core drilling or is it confidential? It seems that it takes a long time for information to get out. Are you now drilling a core that will go beyond the 800,000 year period?
    How could a person apply for a simple support role?

    Thanks in advance,

    George
