Scientists Rescue History From Melting Glaciers


Scientists climbed a mountain to preserve 18,000 years of climate history before it melts.

Check out this video from Vocativ and watch the Ice Memory expedition collect ice cores from glaciers in the Andes of Bolivia. Storing them will allow current and future scientists to study the important climate and environmental data they hold.

Ice Memory was established by French glaciologists and their Italian partners from IGE Grenoble, Institut des géosciences de l’environnement.
