Retrograded ice cores from the 2014-15 field season safely inside the National Ice Core Laboratory

The retrograded ice cores from the 2014-15 field season safely inside the National Ice Core Laboratory (NICL) freezer in Denver, Colorado. The ice is stored inside NICL's -36 degree C main archive freezer. Each white box contains five 1-meter long sections of the ice core. A total of 566 meters from the SPICE core, along with two 10-meter long firn cores, were shipped to the NICL. The ice arrived safely in Port Hueneme (PTH), CA, on February 28, via the U.S. Antarctic Program’s cargo vessel. During the evening of March 3, the ice left PTH and arrived to NICL at about 8:30pm on March 4. The ice was in the SAFECORE refrigerated container for the entire journey. Photo credit: Leah Street
