Hi Dennis!

There are probably many purposes to the study, but the two that I consider the most important are related to the scientific purpose and the educational purpose. The main scientific purpose is to gather information about the climate and ocean circulation patterns in the past. Studying the core samples in different ways provides this information. The more we know about what the climate and ocean currents were in the past, the better we can predict what the climate and circulation patterns might be in the future.

For me as a teacher, the purpose I'm most excited about is the ability to collect real samples and do real research, and then let my students help in working with those samples and research. It is my hope that I can use the samples collected to do a lot of fun experiments with my classes in school, and hopefully those experiences will make the students even more excited about science and realize how important, and often fun at the same time, science can be.

I hope that anwers your question.
