3:30 Our Changing World

A team of scientists has set up a drill rig and twin-pontoon barge in Lake Ohau, a glacial lake in the Mackenzie Basin, as part of a major drilling project to explore its climate history. During the last Ice Age (some 20,000 years ago) the lake basin was filled with a large glacier, which retreated suddenly about 17,500 years ago. Veronika Meduna joins the team to find out what the lake can tell us about changes in the South Island's rainfall during this period of past climate change.
