Packing the insulated shipping container (ISC) box with ice cores

Packing the insulated shipping container (ISC) box with ice cores. Each ISC box can hold five 1 meter long sections of the ice core. The 1 meter long sections of ice core are put into 0.152 mm (6 mil) thick polyethylene ’layflat’ tubing and then into aluminum-coated cardboard core tubes. The core tubes are then packed into ISC boxes, with the voids around each core tube filled with snow. Photo credit: T.J. Fudge
