Team Deluge illustrates how when rainwater seeps into a cave, it drips onto the surfaces of stalagmites where it slowly transforms into rock layers and safely stores chemical evidence of rainfall and environmental changes, giving us nearly 400,000 years of rainfall history.

THE SCIENCE | ALENA KIMBROUGH

When rainwater seeps into a cave, it drips onto the surfaces of stalagmites where it slowly transforms into rock layers and safely stores chemical evidence of rainfall and environmental changes. Alena takes these stalagmites and measures oxygen isotopes and other elements from these growth layers. She can determine nearly 400,000 years of rainfall history. This research helps us to understand past climate, which is essential to predict how climate and rainfall patterns might change in the future.

THE ART | ERIN WALSH

The design is bound by an outline of Indonesia’s coastline during the ice ages (when the see level was 120m lower than today). Sulawesi, were Alena focuses on is marked by a butterfly (which they are famous for). Inside the cave, you see the stalagmite deposition process: as rains drip from the cave roof, each drop slowly turn into stalagmites. Alena’s oxygen isotope data was used to create the shape of the stalagmites, while the red and blue colour scheme highlights that stalagmites can tell you about both wet and dry periods.

    We produce high quality shirts so you can wear them everyday and spark all of those science-ey conversations.

    Our shirts are made from a mid weight, 180 GSM, 100% combed cotton (aka a great shirt). They are also preshrunk to minimise shrinkage (phew).

    Shirts are sourced through AS Colour as they have high quality products and transparent ethical processes, see here.

    To minimise our enviromental impact our shirts are printed on demand with water-based inks and are shipped in home-compostable packaging (yay compost!).

  • SHIPPING & RETURNS

    All shirts are printed and shipped from Melbourne within 14 days of ordering.

  • OUR CHANGE MAKERS

    Shirty Science wants to change the world one shirt at a time.

    We use our profits to help organisations that are supporting diversity in STEM. We do this the only way we know how – making shirts!

    You can see all our Change Maker shirts here. All profits from the sale of these shirts go directly to the organisation the shirt is about.

    Are you part of a Change Maker organisation? Would you like a shirt? Let us know here.
