Abstract:

Our facility is responsible for processing, cataloging, and distributing ice cores drilled in Antarctica, Greenland, and other polar and sub-polar regions to approved recipients in accordance with National Science Foundation ice core sample distribution policy. Under this arrangement a commercial freezer facility stores most of the cores, with some storage capacity located at the State University of New York, Buffalo. A curator handles and arranges for redistribution and shipment of the ice cores. A data bank is maintained for each core recovered in the field and the data bank is regularly updated (Langway, 1974; Langway and Chiang, 1976).
