In this slide set, scientists travel to the ends of the earth to study climate variability. Included in this set are color photos of the Greenland Ice Sheet and the Antarctic Ice Sheet, in addition to a comprehensive text. Examine ice cores, visit science camps, and understand the importance of these two enormous ice sheets. Maps and graphic representations of ice core data along with ice core methodology and long term (glacial/interglacial) climatic reconstructions are also included. This set would be appropriate for college level audiences and could be used as an educational tool for studying current issues in glaciology, global warming, the greenhouse effect, and global climate variability. Set also includes a glossary and further reading lists.
