Episode 42 features Jeff Severinghaus: Professor and Geoscientist at UCSD- Scripps. He just returned from Antarctica where he uncovered ancient ice core samples which helps scientists better understand future climate change and predict planetary warming. After several years of tests, using an experimental drill of his own design, the team of researchers including Jeff was able to drill 2,000+ feet below the surface where they found two million-year-old ice. This is the first time scientists were able to study an ice core that old. Previously, the oldest complete ice core provided data back to 800,000 years. In this episode, we speak about the study and research, his time in Antarctica, why ancient ice and the bubbles trapped in it are so important to understanding future climate change, and much more.
