The Glacial Interglacial Core Model contains evidence of a shift from an interglacial to a glacial period approximately 0.9 million years ago. This core can be loaned out for your educational needs.
Episode 1: Tales of the Resolution! The reader is introduced to the ship and its history of discovery. This graphic novel takes place just before the JR was about to undergo a major re-fitting after two decades of scientific ocean drilling. Authored and designed by Carl Brenner from the Borehole Research Group. More graphic novels can be found at http://www.ldeo.columbia.edu/BRG/outreach/media/tales/index.html
This set of investigations focuses on the use of sedimentary facies (lithologies interpreted to record particular depositional environments) to interpret paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic changes in Neogene sediment cores from the Antarctic margin. In Part 12.1, you wil

Expedition 310 collected evidence of changes in sea level during the last deglaciation, including a record of temperature and salinity changes in the southern Pacific. The two 60cm replicas of 310-20A-22R-2 display coral sandstone and massive coral (Porites) in growth position with interbedded microbiolites (organosedimentary deposits).
This Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) core from the Walvis Ridge in the South Atlantic shows the distinct boundary between two time periods when a warming climate initiated a rapid release of carbon resulting in extreme ocean acidification.
How to use the core model with students:
This model is a replica of a core retrieved in the Antarctic Peninsula on ODP Expedition 178. It shows seasonal layers (laminae) composed of different diatoms species that were deposited during the late Holocene and provides evidence for the changing climate and glacial retreat that took place in the region after the last ice age. This core section also contains a drop stone.
Expedition 303 drilled cores from the North Atlantic that helped build a timeline of climate change over the last several million years of Earth’s history.
