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.
