ANDRILL's Success During the 4th International Polar Year

Introduction
One of the scientific programs of the Fourth International
Polar Year (Allison et al., 2007; www.ipy.org), the ANDRILL
(ANtarctic geological DRILLing) Program (Fig. 1) demon-
strated ability to recover high quality marine and glacimarine
sedimentary drill cores from high latitude ice-covered areas.
ANDRILL's inaugural 2006 and 2007 drilling seasons
resulted in the two deepest drill holes on the Antarctic
continental margin, recovering high-quality and nearly
continuous 2400 meters of sediment cores. A chief scientific
objective of this collaborative effort of scientists, engineers,
technicians, students, educators, drillers, and support
personnel from Germany, Italy, New Zealand, and the United
States is the recovery of sedimentary archives from which
past climatic and environmental changes in the southern
high latitudes can be reconstructed. More than 120
