View of the core processing station inside the drill tent

View of the core processing station inside the drill tent. The drill recovers ice cores approximately 2-meters in length. The 2-meter long sections of core are then cut into 1-meter long sections, as shown in the photo, so that they fit into the standard-sized insulated shipping container (ISC) boxes used by the US ice-coring community to transport ice cores. A dry-cut circular saw is used to make the cuts. Photo credit: Murat Aydin
