Scientists go to Antarctica to drill for ice 1.5 million years old
Science is A group of European scientists draws next year to Antarctica to drill the oldest ice in the world. The must us to learn more about how our climate over the past 1.5 million years changed, and it can help us to make forecasts for the future.

On april 9, the exact location of the hole be made known. A team of prominent ice - and climate scientists from 10 European countries have two years to become the ideal place searched.

15 years ago, scientists from Epica already in to ice cream find of 800,000 year old. That showed a very close relationship between the level of CO2 and the temperature on earth. “Then We came to know that the concentrations of greenhouse gases that we know today, are much greater than they have over the past 800 000 years ever been,” says professor kwarternaire sciences Raimund Muscheler of Lund university in Sweden, in the British newspaper The Guardian. the

Muscheler is concerned with the study of the Quaternary period, the youngest and simultaneously the shortest period in the aardgeschiedenis, the youngest 2.6 million year spans. (read on below)
