About the Science
- This detailed video describes the NEEM ice core research project, which explores samples from ice cores from the Eemian period -- a geological period that began about 130,000 years ago, and is potentially similar to what may happen to atmospheric temperatures in the next few hundred years.
- The video shows how scientists use a continuous sampling technique to analyze ice core samples in the field.
- Sophisticated correlations between increasing temperatures and levels of carbon dioxide reveal a historical record that confirms carbon dioxide is causing warming.
- Comments from expert scientist: The scientists interviewed are eminently experts in the field. The video does not provide references as such, but the experts giving comments are definitely of high caliber.
About the Pedagogy
- The web page associated with the video contains important background material.
- Ties in National Guard air pilots - can be used to demonstrate that careers other than scientists can have an impact on science.
