beyond EPICA

Antarctic Project

Beyond EPICA project aims to:

  • Retrieve a continuous ice core to bedrock in Antarctica, covering the climate history of the Mid Pleistocene Transition and beyond, where glacial/interglacial cycles changed from a 40,000 to a 100,000 yr cyclicity.
  • Derive first high-resolution climate records over the time interval older than 700 kyr.
  • Use the new climate records to constraint the cause of the MPT and long-term carbon cycle-climate feedbacks.
