October 1, 2006: Corelyzer Joins ANDRILL Expedition

Corelyzer Joins ANDRILL Expedition. EVL's Corelyzer visualization software will be used during the latest ANDRILL McMurdo Ice Shelf drilling Project scheduled for October 2006. Corelyzer was developed by Prof. Jason Leigh, Andrew Johnson, Luc Renambot and graduate students Arun Rao (MS), Julian Chen (PhD), James Lee (PhD) as part of National Science Foundation's CoreWall Project (www.corewall.org). ANDRILL stands for Antarctic geological drilling. It is a five-year research project, officially called "Investigating Antarctica's Role in Cenozoic Global Environmental Change," studying the past 20 million years of the geologic and climate history of Antarctica. Scientists plan to drill two deep holes in the McMurdo Sound region to recover continuous sediment cores from the seabed. The drilling platforms will be floating ice. Scientists will use a powerful new drilling system owned by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Northern Illinois University. About 100 scientists from the United States, Germany, New Zealand and Italy will be involved in the project. The recovered cores will be scanned and visualized using EVL's Corelyzer software http://www.corewall.org.
