Lake El'gygytgyn Drilling Project

Scientific Drilling at El'gygytgyn Crater Lake, Chukokta, Northeast Siberia

The polar regions are known to play a major role in the global climate system influencing both oceanic and atmospheric circulation through strong feedback interactions involving ocean, atmosphere, cryosphere, and terrestrial processes. One approach towards the understanding of ice-land-ocean interactions to evaluate the Arctic climate system, as well as linkages between the Arctic and the global climate, is to compare glacial, terrestrial, and marine archives over several glacial/interglacial cycles when Milankovitch-forcings and northern hemisphere boundary conditions were not always same....
