Building the air force pallets (AFPs) of ice cores

Building the air force pallets (AFPs) of ice cores. The white boxes are standard-sized insulated shipping container (ISC) boxes used by the US ice-coring community to transport ice cores. Each ISC box contains five 1-meter long sections of ice core. Each AFP contains up to 32 ISC boxes, which equates to 160 meters of ice. Photo credit: T.J. Fudge
