Glaciers and Earth’s Climate in the Past

In the workshop, a water tank will be used simulating the marine environment where light-colored sand is added, which would simulate glacial periods. During deglaciation, when the ice melts, the icebergs carry a large amount of rock fragments that will be simulated with ice cubes with dark sand. Students will create different colored layers in the background. It will also explain how sediments are recovered for study from underwater drilling in oceanographic vessels.
