  • Scientists find the continent of Antarctica as a valuable resource to study the Earth's past and to look into the future. The oldest ice on Earth probably is hiding somewhere in Antarctica and scientists are hoping to find it.
  • The oldest ice on Earth probably is hiding somewhere in Antarctica and scientists are hoping to find it.
  • This frozen continent holds ice that's hundreds of thousands and even millions of years old. 

An international team of researchers is hoping to drill to more than 2,700 metres depth from the surface of Earth (in Antarctica) in their search for ice that is up to 1.5 million years old. The European scientists looking for some of the oldest ice on the planet have zeroed in on a particular spot in Antarctica, where they will drill more than 1.5 miles (2.7 kilometres) below the surface of the ice, reports LiveScience,octra rummy .

tennis tv wta,The frozen continent of Antarctica holds numerous secrets in its belly and therefore drilling into the ice of the said continent is like going back in time. Scientists hope to scoop out relics from long past eras – dust that settled on the surface long ago and bubbles of air trapped by ancient blizzards. This will give them a glance into how the Earth’s climate has changed in the past. Packed into every metre of ice are thousands of years worth of these precious artefacts - a geological treasure trove.

Earlier, Professor Carlo Barbante, an analytical chemist at Ca'Foscari University of Venice, Italy, and coordinator of the Beyond EPICA project that is hoping to recover the ice cores -  told the European Commission that over the last few million years, the Earth’s climate has oscillated between cold glacial periods of time and shorter, warmer interglacial periods.,pure casino

viktor galovic,"We know from information contained within marine sediments that we would have one warm and one cold period every 41,000 years, but then around 1 million years ago, this cycle changed to have a periodicity of about every 100,000 years. We don’t know exactly why this change occurred. Most probably it was due to changes in the carbon dioxide cycle," Barbante said.

The expedition will build on a past mission, EPICA (the European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica), which took place from 1996 to 2004 at the Concordia research station, jointly operated by France and Italy. 

The EPICA researchers were able to obtain an ice core with an 800,000-year record of climate data. During this period, the climate flipped from glacial to interglacial periods on a 100,000-year cycle.,sportsbook app

"Ice cores are unique for geosciences because they are an archive of the paleo-atmosphere," said Beyond EPICA's coordinator Olaf Eisen of the Alfred Wegener Institute in Germany, as reported by LiveScience. The EPICA core, however, "doesn't cover the time between 900,000 and 1.2 million years ago, where we had a transition in the climate system," Eisen told reporters during a press conference.,gambling examples

Prior to 1.2 million years ago, Earth's ice ages are believed to have been alternating on a quicker, 40,000-year cycle. Scientists now want to explore and hunt down answers for what triggered changes in the time during the following transition period in the climate system that caused the glacial periods to get longer and colder. ,betway sports

The European Union-funded project is estimated to cost about €30 million euros (.8 million).

Meanwhile, scientists are hard at work even in the snow-covered glacial mountains of the Alps. According to Channelbet365 offersAsia, scientists are racing to collect ice cores – along with long-frozen records they hold of climate cycles – as global warming melts glaciers and ice sheets. Some say they are running out of time. And, in some cases, it is already too late.
