The team concluded that 1.5 million-year old ice should still exist at the bottom of East Antarctica in regions close to the major Domes, the highest points on the ice sheet, and near the South Pole, as described in the new Climate of the Past study.
These results confirm those of another study, also recently published in Climate of the Past.
Crucially, they also found that an ice core extending that far into the past should be between 2.4 and 3-km long, shorter than the 800,000-year-old core drilled in the previous expedition.
The next step is to survey the identified drill sites to measure the ice thickness and temperature at the bottom of the ice sheet before selecting a final drill location.
This, in turn, allows them to make better predictions about how climate will change in the future.
"Ice cores contain little air bubbles and, thus, represent the only direct archive of the composition of the past atmosphere," says Hubertus Fischer, an experimental climate physics professor at the University of Bern in Switzerland and lead author of the study.
A 3.2-km-long ice core drilled almost a decade ago at Dome Concordia (Dome C) in Antarctica revealed 800,000 years of climate history, showing that greenhouse gases and temperature have mostly moved in lockstep.
As a British company with over 45 years of experience in family history, we’ve built an extensive collection of records from all over the United Kingdom.
Highlights of our British record collection include: Baptism, marriage and burial records from across England and Wales dating back to 1538 – many of which can only be found at Whether it is the Revolutionary War, Waterloo, Boer War or one of the World Wars we have you covered.
The Historical Public Records Program encompasses several projects that aim to provide the entire physical catalog of copyright records in an easily searchable online format for the public.
