Students in Years 5 and 6 enjoyed meeting glaciologist, Chelsea Long.
Chelsea talked about her work in Antarctica and explained that ice core chemistry is the closest thing we have to actual time travel.
Students learned that studying ice cores tells us about natural and unnatural changes over time because the ice traps impurities, air bubbles and water molecules, as it forms.
The students found Chelsea’s talk very interesting and asked questions about the impact of drilling on the environment, what the oldest core sample is, and what sort of work engineers can do in Antarctica.
