Mindy and Emma receiving a freshly drilled section of ice core

Mindy and Emma receiving a freshly drilled section of ice core from the 'brittle ice' zone. After drilling, the ice is extruded into elastic netting (the green material) to ensure that if any breakage of the ice occurs during handling or transport the core fragments will be contained.
