Project Iceberg is the education and outreach site for ANDRILL (ANtarctic geologic DRILLing), a research project to drill and recover cores of sedimentary rock from the sea floor beneath the McMurdo Ice Shelf in order to construct a history of paleoenvironmental changes that will guide understanding of the scope, speed, and frequency of glacial and interglacial changes in Antarctica. The site features videos, photographs, and blogs documenting the project. A set of multimedia interactives lets users meet the members of the team, study the history of exploration in Antarctica, learn about ANDRILL drilling technology, and observe the accumulation and melting of ice sheets and ice shelves. A set of video journals features team members at work and interviews with personnel, and a photo gallery presents images of team members and scenes of the Antarctic landscape. Some team members operate blogs to keep users informed about what is happening on the ice, and there is also an educators page which features links to lessons, activities, and other resources about Antarctica.
