Oregon State to lead effort to find oldest ice in Antarctica

Oregon State University is bringing together experts from across the United States to search for the oldest ice in Antarctica. The air bubbles trapped in ice from millions of years ago could tell us a lot about the earth’s last period of global warming. Ed Brook is a paleoclimatologist at OSU and the director of COLDEX, the Center for Oldest Ice Exploration.
