November 6, 2007: Software Developed by EVL Deployed to Antarctica

In the fall of 2006 and 2007 CoreWall, interactive visualization software for the analysis of sediment cores developed by the Electronic Visualization Laboratory, was deployed and used by scientists in Antarctica as part of the NSF funded ANDRILL program.

The CoreWall Suite is a collaborative development for a real-time stratigraphic correlation, core description and data visualization system to be used by the marine, terrestrial and Antarctic science communities.

ANDRILL (ANtarctic geological DRILLing) is a multinational collaboration comprised of more than 200 scientists, students, and educators from five nations (Germany, Italy, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States) to recover stratigraphic records from the Antarctic margin using Cape Roberts Project (CRP) technology. The chief objective is to drill back in time to recover a history of paleoenvironmental changes that will guide our understanding of how fast, how large, and how frequent were glacial and interglacial changes in the Antarctica region. Future scenarios of global warming require guidance and constraint from past history that will reveal potential timing frequency and site of future changes.
