520 |a In response to Australia's extreme drought conditions, Professor Patrick De Deckker and his team spent several decades digging up core samples from the bottom of freshwater lakes and deep-sea canyons. In this video clip, De Deckker and his team reveal the results of their research and are able to contextualize the drought within an understanding of drought cycles reaching back into antiquity - a hundred times further than recorded weather patterns. In one core sample alone, a mere 400 centimeters of mud, they unearthed the biggest rain gauge available - 10,000 thousand years of climate history, from which they can deduce how long Australia's draught has been going on and find clues as to when it might end.
