Earths Climate History


Due: 2/16 @ 11:59 PM

NOTE: Red and orange scores are not acceptable on this assignment, yellow will be at my discretion.


First, watch the NOVA documentary titled Antarctica Secrets: Beneath the Ice. Keep in mind that this documentary was made in 2011. It is an informational documentary that describes the process of extracting ice-cores for global climate research.

more info about the documentary can be found here:

Then, after you watch the video write a brief 1-page essay (12 pt font, double spaced) summarizing what you learned from the video. Try to focus on Antarcticas climate history, the specifics of what the ice and ocean sediment cores in Antarctica reveal, and the process of the ice-core extraction details.

Note: Use complete sentences with correct grammar and spelling. Proper writing and clarity of thoughts are important in getting full credit.  Also please keep to the 1-page, much shorter or longer essays will be cause for a reduction in score.
