Students will evaluate water ice balloons to reconstruct recent climate history by sorting different layers of evidence.
Real World Science Topics:
- A comparison of the ice balloon to an ice core taken from a glacier.
- An understanding of how glaciologists remove ice cores from glaciers.
After completing this activity, students should have a better understanding of the way scientists study ice cores in order to learn the history of Earth's climate change.
