Chilean Expedition Featured in Newspaper

A recent expedition to Chile by Paul Mayewski, director of UMaine’s Climate Change Institute, and a team of other UMaine scientists, was featured in the Bangor Daily News. The article noted the group drilled ice cores in a crater inside an active volcano. Mayewski told the BDN the region is important because the glaciers there are one of the primary water sources for the growing city of Santiago. Andrei Kurbatov, an assistant research professor who was on the trip, said ice core samples can even reveal a picture of how changes humans have made in just the past few decades have affected contaminants in the atmosphere.
