AGU members around the globe drive efforts to better understand Earth's climate and how it has changed over time. Learn more about some of the major discoveries coming from core extractions through the resources below. We will be adding to this page as tools are developed.
lake El'Gygytgyn sediment core reveals a vulnerable planet
As part of AGU’s Centennial, the Lake El’gygtgyn Science Team contributed to a series of educational resources focused on paleoclimatology and global environmental change. The core sample shown in this animation reveals information about a changing climate upward through time. View a more detailed info-graphic of this here!
SCOTIA SEA'S ICEBERG ALLEY: ICEBERG-RAFTED DEBRIS REVEALS THE POTENTIAL FOR RAPID SEA LEVEL RISE
AGU Scientist Michael Weber contributed to a series of educational resources focused on building a deeper understanding of Earth’s changing climate over time. This core sample, extracted in IceBerg Alley via IODP Expedition 382, provided an opportunity to examine iceberg-rafted debris which revealed the potential for rapid sea-level rise. Learn more!
